Default Best jigs of 2013

My go to jigs for 2013 weren't any of the ones I normally use. This year I pretty much used Buck Tail type jigs almost all of the time. I rigged various style and weight Buck Tails with trolling octopus skirts. The glow in the dark, green/yellow and Pink/whited have worked the best. Best of all these are probably the cheapest jigs you can get. Make sure you use the ones with the stoutest hooks. We managed Snapper, Trigger, Cobia and AJ's on them. This coming year going to try and get the Mingos on jigs as well for fun. I'm sure the Mingos would slam a small jig especially if it was tipped with squid.

Mostly vertical jig but we troll them from spot to spot, when only a short distance between them and BFT's eat them up too. Jamfab jigs make some you can troll and jig. Two different eyes to hook to.

I just jigged them vertically. Used various weights from 3 - 10 ounces. The problem with the lighter jigs is that the hooks were too light for the big fish that slam them.

These are the jigs that I used the most. The smaller jig heads were less than $3.00 for two at West Marine the rest were jigs I had bought on sale that I never used until this year when I decided to put trolling skirts on them. Best of all when one is lost to a King Mackerel, Shark or other toothy critter, it's not a big loss.

The top left jigs one was a spoon, took the treble hook off and put on a pair of assist hooks. The pink and green are $4.00 jigs at West Marine and Red Snapper love to eat them, I just took off the treble hooks and put single assist hooks on.

The Buck Tails and jig heads I just took off the tail parts, used a file to cut a groove around the jig so I could tie the skirts on with waxed rigging line.

To get an idea on the size of the jigs, they are laying on quart zip lock baggies. That's what I store them in just put them in my bag.
