Shout jigs...

...specifically the lightens and the stays, have worked for me, but cheaper makes, like sea-rocks and black magics, will also do the trick. As for colours, not a huge factor...can't really go wrong as long as there's a bit of silver/chrome on it somewhere!


What IS critical is the weight...remember, best jigging action is vertical...when you start going horizontal coz your jig isn't heavy enough, you're pretty much out of the game. How much weight you use depends on depth/current/speed of drift. Generally speaking, for depths of 50 meters or less, you want a healthy range between say 80 to 300 grams....having said all this, always try to use the lightest jig you can in order to stay vertical!

haoli half pitch, in gold and orange 130g - the best jig ive seen in action, snapper, sambos, dhuies

+ 1 for the dimiki as well almost my equal fave.

try and go as light as possible they have better movement through the water - IMO anything above the 130g make just make sinkers.

Also make sure you sea anchor is good you want to be jigging up and down to ensure you hit the bottom for the dhuies.

you wont look back now - good luck.

 I have heard that pirate jigs work well for dhuies and pinkies.
