Last few years I have been getting more and more into Jigging. I just bought a BH CCS 250g and want to use it for YFT at the Cortes Bank later this month.  What do we recommend on this trip?


I have a number of flat fall and butterfly and knife jigs, want to know what your experiences have been, thanks in advance.

Flat fall is good and we don't use knife jigs for tuna much though they use knife jigs for blackfin and yft in Gulf of Mexico.

FLC LABO SL jig in 200g - 270g and 220g Sevenseas Hooker jigs are great for tuna.  

I usually bring 200g - 250g Super Sardine jigs as I have had success for tuna in Mexico. 

But any short jigs in 6" - 8" should work for tuna there.
