    No idea, still waiting for some of the older models to work as promised.
    One of the sad signs of our times is that we have demonized those who produce, subsidized those who refuse to produce and canonized those who complain.

    All I ever caught with octo jigs was the bottom.

    However I do like the beserker jigs with a set of gangs off the bottom of them to whack a pilly on.

    It is marketed to fishers, not fish.
    Like any lure it will catch some fish but it will not be any more outstanding that anything else, regardless of the hype or sales pitches.

    They were not made to catch fish, they were made to get you to spend money...like 100% of every other fishing item you can buy.

    I tried the vexed bottom meats, a baited jig. Thery certainly work, but at over 20 bucks each? And sharks like them, too. So i thought, there must be a cheaper way of doing this, so, got online, and found what I wanted. They work out at 7-8 bucks each, just a sliding head, solid rings, assist cord, saltwater fly stramers, and plain old circle hooks. ########## is your friend for all of it, except for hooks. I'd stick with the Tainawas for that, you don't need special jig hooks. I did buy some, but snagged, and broke a hook on 50lb braid, so i biined them. I find the tainawa 18 or 20;s work really well.

    These were my first efforts. using the cheap jig hooks. Since then I've gone back to 3 or even two Tainawa circles, and added Flashabou, and black streamers.








    They don't need much action, just a gentle nod of the rod tip, often get hit on the drop. Typically baited with the Lunds squid, but I've also used fish strip. I made some with the third hook extended so you can get a hook in the suids head on the larger ones, don't know if it increased the hookup rate. Snapper usually go for the head end anyway. Target species around our way are pink snapper, Dhufish, bluebone--also catch samsons, in fact I've iaught more samsons this year than several years previous.

    The other big Chinese place T.E.M.U has them also but I would probably be upgrading the hooks although in saying that I have bought prawn lures that are as good as some of the best with good hooks for a 1/10th the price of name brands and they worked.
