Never doubt a 6 oz diamond jig, or a white/glow 6 or 8 oz leadhead jig!!

For me its Williamson Speed jigs of all sizes and colors work great at avery low cost...Purple and Pink glow in the dark is my favorite to date..

Good luck!!! I just started jigging in 07' and can't get enough...Those jigs catch just about anything that swims in the GOM..

:withstupid The Williamson speed jigs are the only ones I use. I believe 5oz works the best. A big 6oz white bucktail jig is another great one to use too.

Havent really bottom bumped much with jigs offshore, but I personally prefer a 6oz white bucktail (you can buy them at wal-mart for $5) over vertical jigs or you can just make your own for $3-$4. I catch bigger fish with them than vertical jigs and their half the price which definately comes in handy when fishing on wrecks or structure.

I have tried lots - favoritesare the williamson benthos 5 oz for for scamp, snapper. the 7 oz and up for AJs got some nice ones on the 14 oz benthos

for deep water - high current conditions - the williamson abyss - the 7 oz with that weight-low pot belly sinks damnfast. popped some nice fish in over 300 ft with these babies

If the fish are hanging near the bottom I still yo-yo a 6 or 8 oz bead diamond jig, with a replacement Owner 4X treble on a heavy split ring up and down in the strick zone

I have the most luck on the Braid Sea Gators. The fish love them but the jigs will wear you out working them.

The Braids work great and I think are the least expensive of the bunch of vertical style jigs.

If you throw a bucktail, put a strip of bonito belly on it.

I second the Braid sea gator for bottom fish. I remove the tail hook and put a stinger style hook on the front to elimate tangling. For mid level or pelagics the williamsons, shimanos, etc. seem to work better but for bottom species a sea gator in gold mackeral will do it every time. Second would be a 6-10 oz. white or glow bucktail with a glow grub or bonito strip.
