Trolling jigs

On my trip last year, several of the guides had light weight "trolling jigs" that we used with great success. They are quite a bit lighter than the 1/2 oz "casting jigs", have big eyes and look much like a fly fishing streamer. I don't know about big fish on them, but we caught many 5 -6 pounders and one 9 pounder. It was a great "rest" technique when the heat and the work of casting big top water lures wear you down a bit.

I searched the internet but only found one source, Ultimate Peacock Bass Jigs. Do any of you have other sources for this kind of jig?
haven't seen them anywhere in my research

I am not aware of anyone selling those. Best bet is to either make your own (shameless plug to my how-to post, just use a lighter head), or do what my guide did, and literally pull off the lead head of an existing jig with pliers.

AS mentioned Ultimate peacock bass jigs sells these type of jigs. They basically are tying a fly onto a strong light weight hook and troll them through lagoons about 50-100 ft behind the boat. check them out at ultimatepeacockbassjigs.com

Guys, I bought a bunch of jigs from ultimatepeacockbassjigs.com, and they are very good. I didn't get any of the trolling ones.

They have a strong, quality 6/0 hook, I think Mustad. Just the right amount of bucktail, flashabou and good color selection.

Don't forget the use of live bait when allowed. Obviously don't get too carried away with various type of lures as you will have baggage weight restrictions. I have posted a few posts regarding live bait. Saved the day for my group many years plus many many huge peacocks landed this way! The odds of landing a 20lbs + monster drastically improves with live bait! Wish I was allowed to use a big boga at La Zona for golden dorado. I can just dream on the monster I could possibly hook into Laughing Cool

Mike -

I am going to go to the Anglers' Inn Floating Suites in late January. The guy that I go to Canada and Mexico with wanted to try Brasil and we really like the Anglers' Inn service in Mexico.
