I was close on the weight guess from the other thread :p


I dont really see the point of using such a large heavy jig though. Would need a broomstick of a rod, and take too much effort to jig. Where they usually get the kingfish I doubt you need such a heavy jig. A jig 3/4 of the length, but less than half the weight would be interesting though. Big jig, big fish?

I think it was more of a case of using it because you can, not because you need to :)

maybe just a small man syndrome, in my opinion you would only be using something like this to show off, but each to their own

You don't know me so why would you say such a thing?  You also didn't know that they catch fish either.

These jigs were especially made for Oz Samsonfish so stick that up ya!

When i worked on the charter boats some of the japanese that came over would link 3 400g jigs together and drop that down for fun and these were no sea rocks or SWL jigs, more like $100 pearl shell jigs, would hate to loose them, bye bye $300!!!!

Just for a laugh

That is well known angler Chris Wong and the distributor of a number of top end jigging products among other this here in NZ.

That particular trip was up at the 3 King Island back in 2006 I think and yeah it was just for a laugh I think. We don't use those here in NZ unless its for a bit of fun. I have one and it sits on the wall in my tackle shed Laughing

Suprising to see how big a lure kingies will actually try and eat though or perhaps it was trying to mate with it? haha
