    Default Question about these kinds of jigs Pic included



    Just wondering how these Kife or Butterfly jig work for Halibut and Lingcod. I have some of the boneyard jigs and they worked out ok. Just wondering if any of you use these kinds of jigs. Any favorite colors?

    I used some butterfly jigs like the ones pictured this past summer and caught fish. I didn't try a pink one, but caught ling, rockfish, flatfish, and salmon o the rest. They sure drop fast and stay down. I like them. Spendy, though.

    The butterfly jigs work good. I try to have several different types on board. Bone yard baits also work good.

    Default Pretty Jigs

    Pretty darn effective that is, at least with rock fish and cod. I had some trouble learning how to jig them at depth keeping the hook from getting tangled with my line so I loop a rubber band through the eyelet on the bottom and over the hook. As Spoiler noted above, they can be spendy....stop by the credit union before you go shopping. You'll need a small loan to carry you thhrough the summer if you buy too many of these things.

    They "saved the day" for us a couple of times this summer when anchored on fish, but they weren't hitting. Those days when any halibut you catch has a rock hard belly, it's so full.

    Flopping them upright from flat on the bottom, then flat again drew strikes when nothing else would do it.

    Otherwise, I can't say they worked better than any other jig. In average conditions, if they caught fish so did most every other jig, especially when drifting.

    I carry them, but due to expense I don't even put them on until everything else fails.

    I have not had a problem wrapping the hooks on my line. I do use a stiff, mono leader, though. That could have something to do with it. I had some friends send me about three dozen of these jigs last spring. I would never have purchased them. After using them, I will always have a few on the boat. I wonder how they would do on big char and lakers through the ice?

    The green colored ones work great or lings out in PWS. Never had a problem with them tangling on the main line either but I use 100lb. mono as a shock leader also. I will have to give them a try for halibut as detailed in Brownbear's post.
