After seeing the discussions re the possibility of using soft plastics for grouper, decided to give it a try on our Wilmington, NC trip 5/31 - 6/1. Here they are. Right out the Alaska halibut book. For reference, those jigheads are, from left to right, 8, 12, & 16 oz.
That ought to give them something to chew on! And I suspect the AJs will whack 'em too!
Any given day each one may seem to perform better but overall I imagine little difference. I notice Kil used the gold while bottom fishing in TX so he must prefer them OR that may have been all he had available lol. But both will work.
