    They look odd, but apparently there's some guides who use them and do quite well. Anyone use them before? Bottomfish jigs.png

    They work great, tip them with some bait and they make for fantastic Lingcod lures.

    Do you fill them with scent? Or are they just lead filled? I figured a glowing wiggling plastic tailed jig would be far more effective

    You wouldn't be wrong. But if you drop anything on a lings head I bet they'd bite it.

    They are normally filled with lead

    If you want one I left it about eighty feet due west of Thrasher Rock this afternoon in about fifty feet of water. Free for the taking, local pick up only.

    I used to make those when I was a teen for cod.

    Was that to help with the electrical charge issue?

    Terminal gear IMO is too light. I'd put a large split ring/large barrel swivel 220# test up top, ditch the treble & hang 2 assist hooks made with Mustad 8/0 inline hooks, then size the assist cord so that the hook hangs half-way down; should be less prone to snagging. A guy who chartered Ling trips at Swiftsure says to let them bang the bottom, the noise pisses them off.

    Assist hooks are expensive to buy but making them is easy; youtube is your friend. Stormtrooper is right-on with what he says.
