Main thing is to match the jig weight to the rod and then depth.

For 40lb gear in 300 ft depth, around 160-200 g jigs best. 80 lb gear, 250-300 g.

We find the sambos like speed so any long speed jig is good. Ambers more fussy, and tend to like more expensive flutter jigs a but more but it changes....some days we find only 1 angler with a specific jig type or jig motion gets ambers, everyone usually get sambos. Ambers definitely fussier.

Nothing wrong with cheap as chips searocks.....everyone laughs, but they are more than adequate for sambers. When fussy, I resort to Haoli's.........
