Have you ever been shopping for jig heads?
If you have, then you’ve probably seen the endless amount of different jig head options…
Holy Jig Head Overwhelm!!!
Here are just a few of the things you’ll find in most tackle stores:
- Different jig head brands…
- Different jig head sizes and designs…
- Different jig head colors…
- Different jig head weights…
- Different jig head hook shanks…
- And more…
So we went down to The Tackle Center in Islamorada with Salt Strong fishing coach Capt. Mark “Hollywood” Johnson of Florida Keys Fun Fishing to show exactly how to pick out the best jig heads in a busy tackle store with tons of jig head options.

As you saw in this video with Capt. Mark, there are a bunch of different jig head options…
But it doesn’t have to be that intimidating…
His best advice is to find a jighead with quality hooks and make sure you have a worm keeper if you are using it for soft plastics (and he prefers a wider gap jig head for most of his inshore fishing).
He also confirmed that the jig head color isn’t really that important (yes that even goes for chartreuse…)
Hope that helps and please post your favorite jig head brand in the comment section below.
We’d love to hear from you!
