For those of you who want to pick your own leader to rig your jigs, these are a great option between the standard TSP’s and the $60 fully rigged ones. They still come with ball bearing swivels and all welded rigging but give you more options to decide how you want your jig rigged.
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.
