Bass Pro Shops® Premium Jighead - Darter Head
I think these are great Darter Heads! They come with a great name brand hook and they are reliable. I use them in bulk (A-Rigs) so I hope the price doesn't creep up.

I use these darter jigs for swim baits to catch walleyes and pike in ND, and MN. They have a longer shank then the owner jigs which I like for bigger swim baits. Used them last weekend to catch many walleye and pike. Good product.

Not the same as Owner Ultra Darter Jigs
I purchased these on the recommendation of an other reviewer who said these were identical to the Owner Ultra version, just cheaper. I can tell you that they're not the same.
I purchase the Owner Ultra version for the short shank, and lighter wire hook, which affords my plastics better range of motion, and thus, more lifelike presentation. These Bass Pro knock-offs may be similar to the casual angler, but not enough for me. The shank of the hook is 35% longer, and the hook is much heavier than the Owner version, which are both negatives where I fish.
I had to return these to the local Bass Pro Shops store and get the "right kind". Lesson learned.

First off, any product sporting Gamakatsu hooks is sweet in my book. By far the strongest and sharpest hook out there. I like the action of the darter head and it works great for walleye jigging. Unlike normal hooks sometimes they bend when trying to unhook a fish these just rip right out. Also as stated in an earlier post that the hook size is not a 4/0 well I'm glad it's a 3/0.

never saltwater fished before. A Bass Pro person gave me suggestions, and I ordered Kastmaster, Krocka dile spoons, bomber, diawa salt pro minnow, and darter head jigs and Berkley gulp jerk shad. What will I need to rig all these things and how to accomplish that rigging?
Hawkeye69; The first 4 items you list are all cast-and-retrieve lures, as is the Berkeley jerk shad. The jerk shad will work if placed nose-first on the darter head jig, though will require a fairly light rod/reel combo to cast since the darter head is 3/8 ounce max. The Berkeley package probably has rigging suggestions on the back; if not, go to their website and type in "Gulp! jerk shad - rigging and tips". The other manufacturers will have tips on their websites, as well.
the jig heads are used to hold the gulp jerk shad. ALl of the other lures you mentioned can attach directly to your main line or leader line with a knot of your choice, I recommend non slip loop knots or palomar knots.
