Bald chin on artificial's

 G'day everyone,

I'm just wondering if anyone has had much luck at consistently catching bald chin grouper on artificial's and if they have then which artificial's have had the most luck. 

I mostly jig these days, which is great for dhuies, black ass and pinkies, but when we want baldies we usually have to convert back to bait to catch them. 

Cheers Paul

Left my rod in the rod holder while fishing the islands off Carnarvon about 4 years ago, landed 3 baldchin in a row. My self and my cousin couldn't believe it. Anchored up and had it off the bottom rocking with the boat.

Already got some BJ jigs so might send them down with some squid dangling off the back to try temp them.
