Thanks to the many contributions made on this topic I finally got a couple of testing jigs made for a late halibut trip a couple of folks are planning.  These are 12 oz, and balanced correctly it seems.
   I have had some problems with the first couple of pours.  Butt itís a long time coming.

Nothing wrong with that Gary ! The only thing I do differently is put the skirt on the jig head itself ................. I'm sure it will work great either way. I add a thin piece of salmon shin or thin stip of octo on the hook and the large single hook really gets em good with great solid hook ups with not many ever shaking off.

Thanks,  I wanna try to paint 🎨 some with different colors other than natural octopus 🐙 butt donít really know why.   The skirt on backwards was in my planning butt  pictures will follow.
  The locals up here are very partial to the kodiak jig.  These are usually black with an articulated skirt and double j hooks.

These are steel clones to the kodiak jig. About 9 oz,  in the rough.
   When I can do shallow water or slack tiny tides this is in the works.
We put the boy pictured to work with one prototype as he had lots of energy a little while ago.

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

The speckled/mottled finish looks great.

Over the last season in our local waters I did really well with black Kabura sliders (also look like a little octopus in the water) in depths over about 150ft. Might be worth a try?
