Hi all , 

 

I mostly use the rear weighted flat hammered diamond jig for any fish I target, for my personal opinion this is the better jig ever invented 

 

I just want to know what color do you prefer for bottom fishing and tuna fishing : silver or gold ???

 

Thanks in advance ,

 

DAVID

I use traditional silver diamond jig first. I really don't think color of the jig make difference.

But when I fished halibut in Alaska yesterday, we had more hookups on gold flat hammered diamond jigs than other jigs yesterday,

Thanks a lot for the response Mr. Kil

Do you think there is more hook ups using treble attached to swivel or simply eliminate the swivel and add a split ring between the jig and the treble ?

Kil , when you will have rear weighted flat hammered available in stock again ?

I experimented both.  but the results are not conclusive. 

Attaching a swivel between jig and hook definitely gives more action to the hook ( I am a believer hook action is as important as jig action to trigger bites).

but it tend to give more tangle with line.  When target big tuna, I prefer to use a swivel.  I had 170 lb and 250 lb yellowfin tuna with a swivel between jig and hook on a long range boat out of San Diego in 2015.

 

We have some rear waited flat hammered diamond jigs in stock, but not many. :)

Thanks kil ,

You are right because sometimes y eliminate the swivel and get more bites than with swivels

Yesterday get more hits from amberjacks and grouper than other days using a single jigging master monter hook in the rear weighted flat hammered diamond jig - gold color ...

Please get more flat hammered diamond jig , I only use rear weighted flat hammered diamond jig ever !!!

Best ,
