Default Pompano jigging

A few small changes to the jigs I assembled this week. The banana jig is just a twist on the Goofy or Silly jig; using a split ring tail hook vs a set hook. This will be fished with a teaser loop knotted to the front the same as other swim jigs but should provide a bit more action and better hook setting with the tail hook rigged as such.
The ball jig is just an attempt to tone down my usual color scheme by using a more natural color, a lighter weight ball and a crappie / chenille style shrimp imitation as a teaser.
No idea if these will work any better but the endeavor passes a few cold and wet winter days.
I am just doing a few of each for myself and friends but any thoughts or suggestions on design would be welcome.
Thanks,

nice work. The paint jobs are really nice and those flies are pretty good looking too!

Nice jigs. I've been toning down the paint scheme on my jigs too. I think I'm gonna start using jigs w/no skirts when I tip w/fleas. Or, tie w/marabou/craft fur instead of crimped nylon. It will make for a more efficient sand flea delivery vehicle.

Nice looking work.

I have a question about jigs in the surf. What is the retrieve you use when fishing a pompano jig? Hopping? Dragging on the sand or what? I would like to do a little more casting this year in addition to the bait rods.

Thanks for any input.

jig w/some short and quick hops. Nothing crazy or erratic.

I got to test the banana jigs on the East end of Navarre today. I went 3 for 3 (released) wading out to the first bar and targeting a nice hole. I brought this one in for the obligatory beach pic.
The down side to these jigs is , I also went 7 for 7 on Ladyfish and could not get them to throw the hook as with a fixed jig head.
Beautiful day with the North wind. I could actually site cast for Pompano.
