Tried out some Maria Blue Flame 150g jigs this weekend with SimonG and his friend and can report they were extremely good at attracting 1.2kgs Amberjacks (or are they called large Cerviol at that size?). Had it rigged with two short Maria assist hooks as couldn't find one short and one long and they worked extremely well. We even had a double hookup more than once, though we only landed one.

We went out to test the engine but stopped to try our beginners luck at jigging......the result in onlt 70mins of jigging with one rod was 27 Amberjack of between 1-1.2kgs each....we lost around 6, and relased 2 that were maybe 600g to live to fight another day. Only reason we headed in was because I had to go to a family lunch (sod's law!!)

I was recommended to put some coats of lacquer (clear nail polish) to help protect the jig as you could see where it had been attacked. I didn't have time to do it but I definately will for next time.

I have now bought several more of the 150g and some 210g Blue Flames, new stock just arrived at Misterfish, along with some  150g Eva Jigs from Ta' Bormla.

Was a great start to my jigging experience and I'm totally hooked Smiley

These are knife type jigs by the way which have a very nice movement in the water, but just like trolling lures where I have amassed quite a collection would be good to hear everyone recommendations of the jigs they are finding good......and price/build quality.

The 150g Blue Flames are ?18.99 each unrigged, they definately need lacquer as the holographic effect is a sticker not paint which is disappointing to see for a jig at this price, but I guess one can't paint the holographic silver effect, whereas the Eva's were around ?15 if I remember correctly and are all painted.

I got some Eva jigs from Ta' BOrmla in Mosta and found them very good.
There's also some new Eva jigs in an octopus shape and look very attractive for bottom fish.

They are very good priced also.

the fishing gods might have something for me tomorrow I'll be fishing
