Mensagem:  Ponds don't freeze in the panhandle of florida. Oncet in a blue moon a puddle might skin over. I think it's spelled 'jigging', as in jigging for frogs or squid. The original meaning for 'gig' is as a type of boat, a "ship's gig". Probably it seguied to the more common modern usage as a metaphor. A gig is a boat, and a boat is something that is useful for a while, like a musician's night-by-night employment.
