Hogfish Jig for other fish?

I was fishing yesterday around Jupiter where we were using small live white bait on jigs around structure. I did OK with a slightly under slot snook and other assorted fish.

Using the jigs with small white bait got me thinking about those hogfish jigs. They are known as a hog balls or naked ball jig.

Hogfish Bofa Balls- Earball Jigs 2pk

Above are two examples. Forum member Clarosa makes the top one known as Bofa Deez Hogballs. The bottom is from Captain Chappy and is known as Sheepballs.

Has anyone used these type of jigs for inshore for species like snook? 

Also Captain Chappy makes a Hogball XL that ranges in size from 1 oz to 16oz.

Has anyone used these offshore with larger hooks for live or dead baits targeting grouper?
