Williamson Gomame Jig?

Rate this topic

74 posts in this topic

Hey folks,

Trying to build up my surf palejic options. Just picked up a couple of these Williamson Gomame jigs in 3/4 & 1.7 oz. To my eyes they are realistic looking, have an intersteing bend that looks thay they would swim or wobble through the water and are pretty solid metal that would hold up to small blues (though I'm sure finish will get chewed up). They also look like they'll cast a mile. To me they look similar to Hogay Epoxy jigs, perhaps a tad less realistic, but more durable and probably cast better.

Anyone here have any expereince w/ these? Any good in surf for Spanish, Bones, Albies, Blues? Any tipe on how to fish them?

Not sure that bend makes them swim like it would if they were soft plastic...but it does make them look like they are moving :) I’d love to see them in a test tank with dye to see how moving water reacts to that shape...since that’s unlikely I’m gonna buy a few and see how they wiggle :)

 

I will say that’s by far my favorite color and an excellent profile for all the shiny things right up to and including bluefin tuna :drool:

Been using them for about 2 years.. I jig a lot and those are killer for seabass... Mack's can't seem to stay away from them either.. 

 

I don't really cast them much but the few times I've thrown them at blues that came around the boat they got chewed up pretty badly. I wouldn't consider them to be durable, but they're cheap enough..

My personal favorite metal. They are the 1st lure I throw for bonito and albies. Casts a country mile. Pink is my personal favorite in the medium sized(1.2oz) gomami. But all sizes/colors work. Also they catch pretty much every other species. Have gotten tog, sea bass, fluke, scup, sea robin's, blues, stripers, assorted tropical Jack's and banded rudderfish.

How do you like to retrieve them?

They look very similar to the "Stingsilver" from Scandinavia that has been around forever. I used those as a kid for snappers, mackerel and schoolies

They work!

 

I still prefer epoxy jigs larger profile with a lighter weight because they are not all metal.  You can work an epoxy slower.

 

But they all catch in right time and place
