VTLakers where did you get the idea that you can't use lead for lures in Vermont???
10 V.S.A. § 4615. Lead sinkers; sales prohibited
It is unlawful to sell or offer for sale a lead sinker in the State of Vermont. In this section, “sinker” means any device which weighs one-half ounce or less and is attached to a fishing line for the purpose of sinking the line, and does not include other lead fishing-related items such as weighted fly line, lead-core fishing line, downrigger cannon balls, weighted flies, lures, spoons, or jig heads. (Added 2003, No. 137 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. Jan. 1, 2006.)
Now if you go fishing in New Hampshire or Mass alot then yeah you need Non-Lead!! But in Vermont jigs are ok.
