Are these home made or just old fashion ones?

Postby smile0784 » Thu Jun 14, 2018 8:55 am

Found these knife jigs in my dads box.
Dors.anyone know if they were bought by the size possible used a few decades ago or if they are home made?

Would they still work compared to the newer slim amd long jigs that are out now

They are irons were popular back in the day for jigging kingfish in NSW, I used them at Montague island and were popular in the rip... many years ago.

Ahhh. The good old days. A few slugs in there and some old jigs/irons. Worked well for years untill the Japanese started making knife jigs to catch fishermen. :water:

The Jap ones catch more fishermen.
Every lure ever made caught a fisherman before it caught any fish. :tongue:

They have caught fish before and will still catch fish now. Most of them will be the fast jig type. More action = more fish. I used to put a little occy skirt on the treble hook. :thumbsup:
