Conclusion

Grub Tail on Saltwater Assassin Pro Elite Jighead

This is a solid jighead to rig your soft plastic lures on.

I like this jig for Gulp Shrimp and grub tail lures.

While it is not perfect, it is a good choice for inshore fishing.

Nicely done Tony. Unbiased, informative and interesting. Good job presenting.

Great review. I like the the small profile as well, especially the 1/0 size for mini 2” baits.

I’ve found this jig head good for rigging gulp bits on a 1/16oz weight to catch bigger bait, too. Mustad also makes a 1/0 Shrimp Head in 3/16oz that has a small shank/profile that’s good for this. Trout Eye has a nice 1/0 finesse size in 1/4oz as well.

For bigger lures/fish, I’ve started preferring stronger hooks. I’m most impressed with Knotty Hooker heads which use thicker wire Gammy hooks & have a nice stand up head design as well.

I’ve tried a whole bunch of jig heads and have settled on the trout eye / redfish eye heads. There seems to be something about their big eye that attracts fish, and they work well with Z Man plastics.

I’m not sure either, Tony………I just seem to have better success with them.

Tony, have you tried the Slayer inc. jigs? The work really well with the Z-Man products. I watched your review with their paddle tails, and I’m interested what you think about their jig. Great review, thanks.
