Punching heavy vegetation...
Punching is one of my favourite techniques to fish. There is no better feeling than hitting a pocket and feeling the thump. Because u know it can be big!!!!
Jig fishing got me into this new style. I must say that I have very good success with this technique. I use 3/8oz varkenelli tungsten sinkers to hit the pockets. As the profile is so small for the weight u get.
But I want to start punching through the mats. I believe I should go up to 1oz or 1 1/2oz sinkers?? I also saw these punching skirts (Strike King - Tacklewarehouse) with a weight attached to the skirt, made for punching. Now my question is, should I go heavier with the weight of my sinkers??
Is there a reason to using punching skirts?? Is it the same as just a normal spinnerbait skirt?? And if u want punching skirts is there tackle shops that do sell them?? And Malcom if u read this, what is the heaviest varkenelli weights u have??

Maybe someone with experience that can help me with this to take punching to another level.

I was just at World of Fishing and saw the Varkenelli tungstens. The largest I saw was a 1oz, not sure if they have heavier.

Jonni Wills also wrote a lekker little article for us a while back which you can find here <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.bluewatergear.co.za/index.php/resources/articles/punching/punching-it-jonni-wills" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.bluewatergear.co.za/index.ph ... onni-wills</a><!-- m -->

This is definitely a technique that I need to get more familiar with. After watching the clip with Rob Fisher (Changing it Up) I am inspired to try new things, fishing things that is Tongue
