So just what are Butterfly Jigs, and the technique called “Butterfly Jigging?” Butterfly jigs get their name because of their butterfly-like fluttering action when jigging. Butterfly jigs were created in Japan in the early 90's and were fished at depths down to 500ft for bluefin tuna. Butterfly jigs have been exploding on the market as of late for their ability to force strikes from finicky fish. The deep belly shape of the Buterfly Jig provides a spiral darting action vertically through the water columns, while other butterfly jig designs offer top water walking the dog effects.
Butterfly jigs range in size from a three inche to 12 inches, and range in weight from 2 ounce butterfly jigs to over 9 inch jigs. Colors offered for butterfly jigs are wide spread and include the blue sardine/silver butterfly jig, aji Brown/silver butterfly jig, green mackerel/silver butterfly jig, squid/silver butterfly jig, pink/silver butterfly jig, chartreuse/white butterfly jig, chrome hammered butterfly jig, smooth diamond finished butterfly jig, and an array of solid and blended colored butterfly jigs.
