Alton Jones explains how and why a punch skirt works well in Florida

November 11, 2022 • Major League Lessons

Mercury Pro Team angler Alton Jones rolls with the punches when it comes to fishing conditions, which is why he’ll simulate fishing with a jig by pitching or flipping a punch skirt rig while in Florida.

In this video, the Texas titan shows how to set up a punch skirt that allows him to fish a plastic through heavy vegetation while maintaining the weightlessness of a Texas rig. A punch skirt provides the larger profile that’s needed for scoring big bites while also showing the Sunshine State’s bass something they don’t frequently see.
