Demersal Jig Choices

Hey guys,

Have used bait for most of my time fishing for demersals, but lately have been trying some different techniques and have landed a few Dhu's etc, on the McArthy soft plastics. Would now like to try some jigging for demersals - mainly Dhu's - but was wondering which jigs to use (Have heard good reports on the Daiwa Pirates?). Has anyone had recent success with particular jigs? Any suggestions on brands, weight and colours would be greatly appreciated. We mostly fish in 30-45m of water.

It's been asked a million times, just try the site search!

Ps: lucanus, pirates and oktas are barely jigs, but the upside is that you probably don't need as specialist a rod to work them.
