    Tuna, Albacore, Barracuda, Bonito jigs.


    These are lures that can be used asjigs, cast and retrieved, - similar to spoons, diamonds, and irons.


    These pics are using the original live jig without the single hook and teaser

    The kudako's are new, so we don't have any in the field pics or reviews yet.Edited by: geoi310

    .....and when nothin's biting...they make great earings! lol


    Jessy, these are used basically as an alternative to using bait. You cast them out , and wind them back in. As they move through the water while winding , they swim , dart , wobble , and flash....imitating a live baitfish. They can also be jigged, meaning they can be lowered straight down from a boat or pier to a depth thats holding fish and jigged up and down like a yo-yo. The lure will dart up and flutter down, to imitate an injured baitfish.They can even be trolled (dragged behind a moving boat) Lures come in many different styles , shapes , colors , and materials.....hard , soft , with feathers , rattles , lights and scent, to accomodate different fishing conditions , water depths , fishing tecniqes, and types of fish.


    Hope this helped[​IMG]

    Megabaits are AWSOME! I realy like that #17 sardine pattern. Cant wait to try the new ones! I read a report on another board a little while back about a guy who got a swordie to light up on one! He saw the fish finning and the only thing he had rigged and ready was a jigstick with a MegaBait. If I remember right , I think he was even breifly hooked up with the swordie. If this is true, and knowing that roughly one in a thousand baited swordfish will actually bite.....thats a heck of an endorsement for MegaBait.

    dude, these jigs look good.......they look quite narrow, i would think there swimming action would be quite different than say a 6x jr, or 45.....looks as though they have a fast sink rate...do they?</font>

    Guys I have used these jigs for awhile although they came with treble hooks. They are very productive and nice and solid - heavy too. I used to use them on the bottom of my Sabiki and got a few White Sea Bass while making bait. Also got popped at Ventura Pier by a big Spotfin while using my Sabiki (very light Sabiki) that ended up with my favorite jig. Stopped using them after that at the pier as I needed a light weight Sabiki and it couldn't stand up to the larger fish that hit the jig. Off-Shore when using a heavier duty Sabiki this jig is always at the bottom of it as the Mac's like it as well and the Bonito leave teeth marks.....


    George thanks for the heads up. I can't wait till the Bonito are running here in Florida as they tend to be nice sized fish and in very large feeding frenzy schools. It is non stop action thats hot and heavy when you are in the middle of it.


    Here is Twister with one

    You usually don't cast much on the party boats. They put you right over the fish most of the time so all you really need to do is drop straight down. :D

    yeah... party boats get loaded with passengers, so overhead casting can be a no no. Lots of people that cast on those boats simply underhand cast... and those that really cast allot should be on the bow of the boat where there aren't as many anglers.

    ON the New Del mar i usually cast far out. I think if you just make sure you know what your doing you'll be alright. Except this guy Mo caught knocked upsided his head witha 5 in tady last weekend. but besides that usually no problem on casting
