Which swim baitheads are you using?
I really love the Megabass Okashira heads rigged with 4" hazedongs, but only thing is, I am down to my last pack of 4 and It's getting harder to find these things lol

Need an alternative!

Picasso heads for the win. I use the #1 on 2.8" and 3" baits, the 2/0 on 3.3", the 4/0 on 4.8"s. I might be wrong about the last, could be 5/0 in the Gamakatsu version because they run a tad bit small. The Mustad version 5/0 works for me even on the 5.8's.

For 4" swimbaits mentioned I use a lot of weedless heads by OMTD or the Owner Ballhead shaky heads. A small swimbait rigged weedless dragged through light cover is #1 technique for me.

Revenge, in different variations.

Great combination of color, size and weight choices with good hooks.

Omegas new X head..
concave head design so the bait fits snug and has a double retention band either for a SB or double skirts or combination of both..

Found it. Will there be more weight options available? I'm only seeing a half ounce. Do you know what the hook is, or size of the hook?

Follow up to the jighead question is what baits are you guys finding the most success with? Asking because I am just now starting to throw them and with very little success of late.
