Default Think deep droppers would use?

Just sending out a question for deep droppers and others to see if there is any interest in a 2lb bullethead jig w/ 12/0 mustad dt hook and brass eyelet.
I was going to try a couple on ebay figured I'd ask the experts.


cost 8 to 10 dollars each. Thanks for your time!
Happy 4th to all.

Default Way too much work.

I can't imagine jigging those monsters.

I’ve jigged deepwater Grouper with a 10oz butterfly jig a couple times and caught fish but I never really had the feeling of, “Hell yeah I want to do that again”, when I got it to the boat.

But then again, I had a small electric I used to bliner fish with.

Deep water is a lot of work when you go manual. Kinda takes the fun out of it unless your swordfishing.

Just what I remember. Haven’t been out in awhile.

I may be wrong, but I don't really see a fish wanting to wrap its lips around a 2 lb chunk of lead.

Pier rats might like them to throw at boats.

I would think that most of deep dropping action will be mostly a smell thing at that depth. Something moving around in the dark probably won't trigger much response.

Not practical. Neat looking, but, not practical.

I jigged up a snowy on one of the giant Williamson knife jigs once. Key word once. I used a manual real. Bunch of work, especially if you donít get a hit.

If you just want the sport, Iím sure they would work with a huge glow curly tail if you can find one big enough for the hook.
