Roatan.

1/4 oz blackfish jigs work well as well as the flats jigs with the hairs. Regular hook I fish 1/0 circles with a tiny split shot.   Live. Shrimp or crabs work best.

if you want to rig shrimp on a jig head the best ones are called crusher jigs or yellowtail candy. You probably want the lightest ones you can find. hook it through the tail fish go nuts over them. The goofy jigs work great but  best in the surf cause they imitate mole crabs and small bait fish. I seen a few guys hook up to permit on them . They were designed for pompano but will catch anything .
