Designed around VMC’s Barbarian Hook series. These heavy duty jig heads are tough enough for the biggest bass, grouper and cobia. A personal favorite of many Hogy® Elite Pro Staffers. The unique design of the technical locking curve allows a maximum transfer of energy towards the point while setting the hook. This results in a faster and more effortless penetration of the point and up to 25% improved hooking rate. The hooks V shape locks the fish close to the shank, applying less pressure on the point. This prevents big fish from opening the hook and self-releasing.

The challenge with fishing around boulder fields and shallow rips is that the bottoms are uneven and usually covered with weeds. Many anglers avoid these spots because they think that they can’t be fished because of the snags. In some spots I fish plastics, I get hung up with top waters! But a single hook jig head with a big plastic retrieved at the proper speed will slide over most snags and bounce off rocks.. . . . Read More
