This 3.5 oz jig allows me to combine 3 commonly available elements.
Looks great in the water.
On top #35 or #45 golden bait octopus skirts
Add terminator quick skirt (silicone) or any umbrella silicone skirt below it and upside down.
Twist on wire center pin to hold various soft plastics
Add hook
Poured the jig in my homemade silicone mold.

Nice jigs! what would you guess your price per piece comes out to? I want to make some Lucanus style Octo-jigs and the originals are spendy, IMO, but then all butterfly, knife, etc, jigs are.

I just used what I had around .... some black bass skirts and soft plastics.  The most expensive item
may be the golden bait octopus skirts which retail for $8 per 6.  Some cheaper alternatives exist like
p-line.  The center pin spring are easy to make with .022" stainless wire.   Do-it brass sinker eyes #2.
Terminator quick skirts cost about $1, but you  can find them for 1/2 the cost.

I have a mold for lucanus style head.  I think there are some youtube videos including some guy in
europe making them.  Most expensive item is the long silicone? trailers.  He makes those from balloons.

Especially if you lose many to snags, it would be worth making.  Lucanus is fairly easy to make.

Here is a 6.5 oz. slow jerker.  I am in process of adding silicone mold making primer for those
interested. Hook shown is experimental, I will probably go with big treble hook on a trailer.

I make these out of 2 to 6oz trolling sinkers and assist hooks with a glow hoche skirt. I have caught a lot of different fish with them. 39# cobia was the last victim.
