When to Use a Punch Skirt and How to Rig It

Adding a skirt to your standard flipping/pitching setup is a slick way to sneak bulky jig profiles into the thickest cover without constant fowling. A punch skirt is simply a flipping rig with a skirt attached and the primary benefit is that it’s more sleek and weedless than a conventional brush guard jig.

Professional angler and jig fishing expert Dave Lefebre has been relying on this technique for years and explains when he opts for this setup over a regular jig, and how to quickly rig one in the boat without any specialized gear.
