1/16 Tube Jig Heads
« on: 09/18/16 16:51 UTC »
3/0 medium wire extra wide and round gap BN hooks for fishing under a slip cork for Specks and Reds.
I am planning on tying these using the shrimp pattern with barred rabbit and getting the eyes up close to the hook eye leaving just a bit of the head exposed. They should offer an extra slow drop and there is enough room to tie in a mono weed guard. Worth a try...

Looks like a killer combo.  With the rabbit, they should dang near float.

I need to tie up a few in both x lg bead chain and the floating plastic eyes. The bead chain may be needed to get them down if there is any current. The 1/8 heads pictured sank a bit too fast.

It is the 38109. It will be the first time I use it for inshore and salt. I think it will work well for the application vs the 2X and 3X.

The largest bead eyes that I have fit over the head leaving plenty of room for a mono weed guard if I want.

I tied a few up using floating and bead eyes and with or without antenna to wet test sink rates and profile in the AM.

I love it. I know it's for salt fish, but I'm guessing a small mouth wouldn't mind thumping that.
