    Those actually work pretty good. On of my buddies just has to fish that every time and gets a mixed back...although the hooks are a bit small.

    One thing I found that works well is the 7oz. Krocodile spoon.

    I do believe he has every size...with a bigger hook they should do well. Rock fish and lings dig `em...no halibut on one yet.

    You should give up pot building and hit the clubs doing stand up
    I have to dream of fishing since it's going to be a while before I get out again.

    Here's a few not available In stores.
    I make these myself. The Torpedo jigs work great on Halibut. I did switch out the hooks on those to an 8/0 owner ssw on 150# spectra instead of the split rings.
    I have not tried the squid heads but there are a couple of guys testing them for me now. One guy in PWS and another guy in the Gulf of Mexico. So I will know in time how well they do.
    I intend to use them for rockfish myself.
    They have an 8/0 assist setup off the top eye and a hook on a splitring on the bottom eye.

    A friend of mine has what he refers to as a Dong Lure. It works on both halibut and rockfish. You can most likely guess what it looks like - then think a little bit larger.......LOL

    Not sure if they are unusual, but I've rigged up the big swim shads like this, and they are very effective for halibut and ling cod, well anything that can get them in their mouth.



    I also rigged up some of the next size down shads and tied on some maribou to emulate gill plates, and rapped a bunch of yarn around the small dia section of the lead head to absorb herring oil, sorry can't find the pic. As a buddy predicted, it'll be effective, but not very durable. Only took two lingcod to tear up the added features. Really not worth the effort to make such jigs, but sometimes during the winter you have those what iff moments.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.
