Metal jigs are made for salt water fishing in deeper part of the ocean where other techniques are less productive. These jigs are usually used in one of two applications. The lighter of the two options are designed to be cast from a surf rod into the water and let sink until it reaches the desired depth then retrieved to imitate a struggling minnow. This method has been successfully used to catch striped bass or mackerel among other things. The heavier metal jigs are often balanced with the weight on the top of the lure to allow the metal jig to flutter as it falls to the bottom quickly like a dead herring to reach ground fish on the ocean floor. This style of jig is reserved for boat fishing and is often used to catch cod, haddock and halibut.
