The New Shimano Butterfly Flat-Side jig has been innovatively designed to perform the best action in the most common situation of angle-vertical jigging from a drifting boat. The rear/center weight balance design lets this jig fall to the bottom quickly with swinging motion. The off-set eyeball position allows for the use of two different hook length for an overall better hooking ratio.
I can't go jigging with out them especially the rainbow and the glow in the dark ..so evextive in calm conditions ...amber jack's loves them .

Fought fish for 90 minutes, and he comes lose to hook bending. Shimao offered to replace lure. Really? You cause me to lose a fish of a lifetime and you offer to replace the lure? joke.

I fish out of Galveston, TX, and use these jigging deep for tuna. Tuna love the chartreuse/glow jigs. i have caught yellowfin and numerous blackfin tuna with this jig.
Prostuna love them have caught multiple fish species
Consdon't flutter on their own, you have to apply a jigging motion when reeling in to get a hit, but you should know this

The Shimano butterfly jig is the absolute best producing butterfly jig I have ever fished. I don't even consider other brands anymore. The 140 gram model fits all of my needs and I have every color made.

though these jigs are pricey they catch more fish. the action is great for pelagics like king mackerel and tuna as well as bottom fish like grouper and snapper. The fish catching ability of these jigs will not disappoint
Great for jigging!

Great Price - Excellent Service

These Jigs are an excellent option for schooling Bass in deep water. Vertical Jigging is becoming very popular in my area, and I have had tremendous success using these jigs. They can be pricey, so shopping around was a priority for me. Not only did Tackle Direct have these items in stock, they had a great variety to choose from at very competitive prices. Again, the quality of their service matches the quality of their products. I would highly recommend ordering your tackle supplies from Tackle Direct, they are professional, helpful, and have gained my loyalty because they conduct their business with integrity.

First time I go deep sea jigging, I used the Shimano Butterfly 8oz Chartreuse/White-Glow for jigging over 500ft depth thinking the glow-in-the-dark side of it would help getting the deep sea fish attention, I dropped it, in few seconds it hits the bottom I started cranking the real and bam! it got a 20lb barracuda hooked, and when I pulled it up, jig was a bit scratched, and I never thought I would but I loved the jig scratch marks from the barracuda sharp teeth. I'd use it every time in the same situation, and I do recommend it for jigging buddies :)
