I had a chance of a lifetime to talk to Denny Brauer at length during the Classic about using the jig. One of the things I asked him was "how do you find the patience to, in some cases, dead stick a jig?". His answer was, "you have to believe in your heart that a fish is sitting there looking at it. You have to have confidence in your abilities to pinpoint where a bass should be, and have the patience to give that fish every opportunity to take that jig".

Me personally, I don't have that kind of patience, but coming from the master of the jig I'd have to take what he said as gospel. Watching Remitz on Amistad, he is working that jig sooooo slowwwww it is almost painfull to watch, but his strike zone is so narrow he doesn't have a choice but to inch it accross that ledge. It says volumes about how critical boat control is.
