Offshore Angler Pompano Jigs
Pompano jig inferior product
I bought 10 packages(3 packs) of 1/2 oz. Compared to the previous pompano jigs that I bought from BPS, these were under weight, not enough hair, the winding was inferior and the coating on the thread was almost nonexistent. Just asking for the thread to be chewed through. Fishing these jigs I found that they did not cast as far, would not bump bottom well and came back with no hair too often. It looks like its a different supplier. Not the same quality product.
WAHOO brand jigs look like what BPS sold in the past.

Good jig for the price
Down in Puerto Rico we use Pompano jigs to fish for yellowtail snappers, mutton snappers, horse eye jacks, bar jacks, coney groupers, etc... Pompano jigs are shorter than other bucktail jigs of the same weight so the hook up rate is better. And this bass pro shop jigs are a really good buy for the price!
The only downside is the quality of the paint in the jig head, is not as good as the paint in other jigs. Snapper's teeth tend to peel it of during time, but they still do their job.

Not for salt water fishing
I purchased 10 pks of these jigs to use in Mexico trolling for Jacks and yellow tail snappers south of Playa del Carmen. The fish hit these jigs quickly and we were very excited. The problem is that the red yarn came apart every time we caught 1 fish. This resulted in the loss of the yellow buck tail and having to tie on a new hook after every catch. The fish ranged from 1-5 pounds with the same result of the buck tails missing from all of the hooks when we reeled in the fish.
