Default Snapper Jigs

Was just wondering what jigs you guys use for snapper? I've used some bucktails before and thought about getting something like a fluke jig for something a tad bit different:

Just curious if anyone else knows anything different. I know of lucanus jigs and such but much more expensive than I want to spend.

How long do the skirts last on those? I've been considering buying them, just making sure I have all the "cheap" options covered

The fish inhale them pronto. I would suggest you carry extra small surgical tubing and assists and spinnerbait skirts. We ended up catching almost every species known to man on them. ( alittle exaggeration )

I use jigs and grubs instead of cut bait when I go out on a charter. grubs get torn off after 2 or 3 fish.

Thanks guys. Lobsterman, where do you get the skirts from? Ebasicpower has some squid skirts for pretty cheap that I was thinking of dropping down but I guess they wouldn't have the same action as a spinnerbait skirt?

Default 4 oz hookingup lures jig

We crush the Red Snapper on them, even the Mingo hits em.

Will post outlets soon, just cranked up production after the oil thing.

Saturday we toasted red snapper, a few mingos, and several short AJs on them.

Weird action when they drop, I don't know why but the fish can't seem to lay off.

I hope that mold never wears out!!!

the jig will be lifted off the bottom smoothly, travel about 1-2 feet in distance, and return to the bottom. This bouncing of the jig off the bottom will stir up dirt and will attract snapper to bite. Once you feel a bite, you will want to almost immediately set the hook with moderate pressure.

A 3-8 oz (depending on depth and current) white bucktail with a glow trailing grub has never let me down. Another favorite of mine at the rigs is a BIG swimbait. Take a look at some of the Tsunami and Panther Martin Swimbaits. The Panther Martin Vivif mackeral in particular has been a big snapper killer for me.
