Weedless vs regular jigheads

Post by wem21 » Wed Jan 17, 2018 6:08 pm

Hi all,
The title says it all. Would you rather a weedless or a regular jighead for targeting flathead, bream and pinkies?

I have never had good experence with weedless heads. Normal jig heads all the way for me. They suit some situations but if fishing land based around ppb then regualr jigheads will do.

Use regular Jig Head and insert hook as you normally do, except do not expose the point of the hook = Weedless

Weedless only if fishing snags/rocky areas/weedbeds/heavy reef etc. Where the hook point can get snagged thus loosing your lure.
In normal situations i would never use a weedless jighead.
