Chrome is an excellent color for targeting bluefin, yellowfin and wahoo. It’s a color for Salas that comes and goes, but has always seemed to work for all kinds of species. The extra flash will make them great for both a casting jig and a yoyo iron for the schoolie tuna and bigger yellowtail. These are available in both single and treble hook variants so if whether you’re going after wahoo on the long range boats, or fishing for the bluefin locally these jigs have you covered.
Over the past decade, we’ve been requested to stock this West Coast staple, a multi-generation producer of effective “iron” in the West Coast tradition. Salas invented, perfected several shapes of jigs that are classics, and they can be found in the tackle boxes of any experienced fisherman out here in California. Let’s just say, Salas is a basic part of our fishing culture here and a product line that is universally recommended by the long range fleet, just as Tady Jigs are well supported within the community. Salas and Tady are the standards out here in SoCal, and I doubt you’ll find any saltwater fisherman who does not own at least 20 jigs from each of these two firms. We own ’em and we fish ’em…often. While these have been West Coast standards, I have clients on the East Coast who also make great use of these lures. For a few of our charter guys, these are their “secret” weapons for when the fishing gets tough. The surface lures do great things on stripers, and no doubt the big iron in white will produce tuna for you just like they do for us. Amberjacks? Well if our yellowtail eat ’em like candy you can assume their cousins will too…and they do.
