Mangrove snapper

The poor man۷ֱ jighead is a simple and effective rig for bottom fishing in shallow water.

A jighead is such a simple thing. Take a long-shanked hook and put a 90-degree kink a quarter-inch below the eye, so the eye is now jutting out on the same side as the bend. Now, mold a chunk of lead onto the hook, covering the kink. That۷ֱ it. Simple.

Now, stand in front of the jighead display in a well-stocked tackle shop. Look at each model — never mind all the different weight and colors, just look at the brand and the shape. There۷ֱ a lot, huh? How did we go from super-simple to needing so many different variations? It۷ֱ all about what we use jigheads for.
