Grouper Jigs for NC?

1082 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  KILSONG
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!

I think those jigs will work just fine on the Grouper. When Kil fished with me recently all he was using was a hammered diamond jigs sometimes tipped with squid, he seemed to catch everything on them. Fishing AJ'S last week I was using Tady 4/0 and williamson jigs couldn't keep the AK'S and Cobia off them. Going to fish a few wrecks on the east side of Cape Lookout on my trips this weekend going to try the Hogy out same concept as above. We'll see how it goes. Ken
