Factory Squid Jigger

A factory squid jigger is a specialized ship that uses powerful lights to attract squid and then "jigs" many thousands of hooked lures from hundreds of separate winches.
Jigging is the practice of fishing with a jig.
A jig is a type of fishing lure consisting of a lead sinker with a hook molded into it and usually covered by a soft body to attract fish.
Jigs are intended to create a jerky, vertical motion.
The jig can be used in both salt water as well as fresh water.
Many species are attracted to the lure which has made it popular amongst anglers for years.

Different Types of Jigs
The head of a jig can consist of many different shapes and colors along with different features.
The most common is the round head and can be anything someone can think up.
Variances can be the hook type, color, angle of the hook or the material of the hook.
Some jig heads even offer a weed guard.
