Offshore Angler™ Shrimp Body Jigheads
I've used these jigheads, primarily in the 1/8 and 1/4 ounce sizes, for a number of years in saltwater. This style sheds weeds & floating "grass" better than others I've tried, and is well suited for shrimp-style bodies and jerkbaits. However, the hook is "soft" and I've lost a number of redfish (over slot size) due to the hook straightening out, on the 1/8 ounce size, in spite of using very light tackle (10 lb braid & 12lb flouro leader). A forged hook would be a great improvement.

great quality and a good price, hook looks strong enough and the right size.

Very good shapeand have caught many fish off of these. Work very well with gulp shrimp or paddle tail plastics. Only negative is that the paint chips off very easily. Would recommend going with the natural lead.

Great design for shrimp bait fishing.
I bought these to fish in the Albermarle Sound in the OBX. At first I thought the hook shank was too short, but then realized that was what allowed me to give my Berkley Gulp shrimp bait that "kink" to allow it to look and stand up like a real shrimp.
