I purchased a dozen of these kastmaster type jigs in 4oz. these are 3 1/4 inches long and almost 1 1/4 wide. I have used kastmaster jigs for freshwater stripers and they work great. how do you think they will work for saltwater jigging???
I don't think those were intended to be jigs in the traditional sense. They cast well and are deadly. We used to use smaller ones in FL to catch Jacks off the jetties. Lots of fun. Barracudas like them too
There's been a speckled trout lure around forever called a "Mr Champ." It's the exact same jig body but they put a piece of bucktail on the back. They work great for trout, and it was always a go-to lure for me because they cast so well. Last trip out I put a single hook on a similar rig and used them to catch hardtails for bait.
