You can keep a reef fish caught on a plain jig.
You cannot keep a snapper caught on a jig tipped with natural bait like squid, cigs, cut bait, live bait, etc, unless that jig has a circle hook.

J hooks + natural bait are more likely to hook a fish in the throat, stomach. Most of the time it means a dead fish, that is why you need to use circle hooks.
