The Offshore Rigged Sand Eel Jig is an ideal solution for targeting trophy gamefish holding in deepwater and heavy current. The fast sinking design can quickly reach deep depths and easily hold postion in heavy current. Paired with 4X VMC Tuna grade rigging, these jigs are suitable for targeting very large Bluefin Tuna and large groundfish.
I use these jigs in my Charter business in Victoria BC to fish for Chinook/King salmon and they slay them to say the least. I use the 3.5oz olive silver drop it to the bottom in 75 to 110 feet of water where the bait is balled up and keep the jig 3 to 15 feet off the bottom and have it flutter into the face of the Chinooks, they hit it on the way down and just love them. If your heading to the pacific northwest you need to have a box full of these for sure.
Good lure I use it for stripedbass many times
The Hogy Sand Eel jig (olive) is an essential lure for Nantucket stripers in June. The rips of Nantucket are loaded with schools of sand eels in June, and these jigs "match the hatch" perfectly. They work effectively on both a direct retrieve and jigged retrieve for stripers and blues, and they're super effective when bottom jigging for black sea bass. Don't fish Nantucket without them!
