Tady decided to come out with their own pre-rigged versions of the TSP Tuna jigs, opting to use 4 large single hooks with a ball bearing swivel for each. The jigs are through-wired so you won’t have to worry about breaking them on a big fish, especially since these rigged versions come with welded rings throughout. Overall these are a great jig targeted specifically for the SoCal market Bluefin fishing, so if you’re targeting the bigger tuna these will be your best option. Considering how many swivels and rings were added to the jig they’re a good value, especially if you get a fish of a lifetime on one. The leader is 200lb mono which is plenty good for abrasion resistance and won’t impact the bite since you’ll be fishing these at night.
The new Tuna versions of the Tady TSP jigs are a much needed change in the jig market, the unique front and rear shape create a wide sweeping action when jigged and an erratic fall on the drop. These are a new design made with shorter and heavier sizes than the standard TSP jigs from Tady, specifically targeted for the big bluefin due to the extra weight and depth they can be used at. Since these are slow pitch jigs you can also use more specialized lighter tackle to really give a great action to the jigs, but they are still usable on bigger heavier reels for a quick drop and retrieve in-fact we encourage you to use them that way for the bigger bluefin. If you are lucky enough to have a nice Slow Pitch setup you can use these for many different species at a variety of current conditions, since they are a bit shorter than the original TSP’s they will work better on a drift or in higher current especially with the added weights.
All of the jigs come in classic holographic bait patterns with a brighter yellow pattern to attract fish in warmer water. Each jig has a patterned glow finish on the back to ensure that they are usable at night and at large depths, the last few years glow jigs have been especially popular for night time and gray light tuna fishing since they get down to the right depth and are easily noticeable by the fish.
