If legal no reason it wouldn't work.

You might consider using line with little or no stretch.      ;)2

Tried it for the first time last night. Had three bites and hooked one, thinking about using a bobbed rig with it so I can add a little slack between the bobbed and trip mechanism to maybe let the fish get a better hold on the bait before the nice tripping sound gets ya all excited   ;D
safe ice, tight lines and god bless!

This sounds like a good idea.

I know this is an old thread but how did this trick work for you? Might try it on the gorge in a couple of weeks. Usually I just use my Jaw jackers as rod holders for the burbs.
Even the losers...

I never got around to trying it. Have to mess with how much tension to pot on the trigger but once figured out it should work well

Just turn the tension on the jacker up and give some slack whacks them everytime
if it bites I chase it

I used a single jaw jacker on Font a week ago. I set the tension just a little bit heavier than I do for trout and nailed one in 70' of water, a foot off the bottom. I will be setting more Jawjackers next time I'm fishing for the ling.

In my set up, I forgot all about my jacker sitting next to me until I heard the snap, reeled in a nice one, we call the cusk here in Maine
