I saw these jigs advertised in this month's Florida Sportsman:

And then it hit me: I have a few of the bucktail jigs by this brand where the feathers have been chewed off by repeated mackerel catches, and I have seen the squid skirts for sale pretty cheap. Couldn't I make my own version of the lure pictured above?

Macgyver-version aside, do you think this new lure will work well?

    Those things come with some sharp **** hooks on them. I have caught plenty of fish with them so I shouldn't care, but... when I hold one I always feel like it needs a wider gap. Clearly they don't, but I think I would have made them 15% wider or so.

    Great jigs but I gotta say I've snapped the hooks on a few big fish. Sharp, yes the are, catch everything that swims, yes they do that as well. But. Not the strongest hooks. Bomber flair hair jigs are wayyyyy stronger. And I've already replace worn out bucktail with skirts and they still catch as well!!
