    Default Deadly New Halibut lure

    I have done some early prototype testing of a new halibut lure. It is not availible in the US yet, but it has shown very impressive results this season. Check out the finish on this beauty....As soon as it comes to Alaska, I will pass the word.

    The STORM Lures make a jig very similar. Is that a lead body?

    Probably a guide on the rod that the lure is on.

    That does look really similar to some I just saw at B&J's, although that is more brilliantly colored.

    Looks small for halibut...... Whats the size? Looks like it would work good for rock fish or is the pic just deceiving?

    I catch halibut everytime I go out with cut herring as bait. That thing is definitly bigger than my cut sections.
    Now what ?

    Question weight...

    Ak. Capt., What weights and sizes does that thing come in? Is the hook stout? I am a sucker for jigs and I love jigging and prefer it over soaking bait. After discovering the effectiveness of jigging and all the smelly, sticky, etc. attractents available I don't buy as much herring as I used to.

    Right, there is a 20 , 23 and 26 cm sizes. The hook is a japanese super sharp deal. Hyabusu....
    A normal jig tail is about 8 " Although I think boneyards are larger. I have my best luck halibut jigging with a 6" tail and as light a jig as I can get down. Just the opposite for lings. The biggest tail I can find seems to catch larger lingcod.

    The head of this is about 12 - 14 ounces from the feel of it. I am sure there is some obsure metric weight embossed somewhere on the thing.

    By spring they should be readily available

    Is the head of the jig weighted and painted? Is the body painted metal or soft plastic?

    The jig head is lead and there is some lead on the hook shank. The body is a tough rubber that looked to be dyed or something.
