Too be honest mate most

Too be honest mate most times they would take any brand I've even heard of them taking spanners with an assist hook attached. But from last season I did quite well with williamson benthos jigs around the 200,250 and 300gr. Most times its the brighter colours that worked for us. They are cheapish and are sold at most tackle stores. I think the action you want for sambos are high speed jigs. I'm sure others will have great info too. I can't wait till the season starts. I hope you get a cracker day mate!

Yeh sambos will really hit

Yeh sambos will really hit anything. Depending on current and drift around 300-400 would be the most likely weight you'd wanna use. Long slim speed jigs. Price will vary heaps, just make sure if you buy cheap ones you change the assists (if they come with them). I'm sure people will give you a few brands to look at but just look around for whatever catches your eye :)

Searocks in 300 to 500g

Tue, 2010-08-17 22:19

Searocks in 300 to 500g worked well for me. I quite liked the old SW lab jigs but I cant seem to find them anymore. Was really hard actually finding any decent jigs last season, so went for R2S zero droppers, which are pretty much exactly the SW lab jigs, and pretty cheap comparitively. Being R2S, they have a pretty durable finish too.

Not a fan of the williamson jigs. They do actually work reasonably, but they bend easily. I had some Juro jigs than looked allright but they couldnt catch fish to save their lives, and this was when everything was getting smashed.

Smith make some nice jigs, but not cheap, so I dont really use them for sambo jigging (smaller sizes make great demersal jigs). They do have some SW labs jigs that look like the smith CB's that work fine too.

Williamsons definatley bend easy......have a 400 g one that has a "different" action now after a Sambo's chewed on it.....still, they do work.


Smith JackKnife 300 g are excellent. My favourite $40 plus after rigging, I suspect it is Campbells Tackles favourite jig as well!!!!! A bit rich for Sambo's, but if there is any hint of Amberjacks around, then it comes out to play (Amberjack is one of my favourite eatring fish......sad aint it!).
