Because these types of jigs are hard to find but highly sought after, O-Bait designed the Halibut Hammer Jig to fix that problem. The Halibut Hammer Jig is made with high quality material, a 3D eye, great colors and a super sharp hook. It's a very versatile lure and its high-action design takes advantage of the strong predator instinct programmed into game fish.
On occasion, we will fish 350 to 500 foot deep structure just to see what we can come up with. This lure along with some fresh squid or a narrow slab of Bonito will always tempt some large rock fish. I also use some glow beads. This type of combination works!!
O-Bail Halibut Hammer Jig & Customer Service
Outstanding customer service as they ensured I got the jigs the following day to enable me to have for the trip.
These rock for Halibut!!!
We use these in Alaska and they rock! We used them last summer on every trip out that we made and they performed beyond expectations. I feel they are better than the tried and tested Crippled Herring as they have a much better hook. The hooks are big enough to hold some halibut skin, herring or salmon belly for scent and still be able to hook the fish. Also these are a quality hook that will stand up to ANY size fish you tie into!
