Berkley Jig It microjigs

Relatively slow to gain in popularity when compared to soft baits and kabura jigs, microjigs are actually very effective on a huge range of fish and can easily be fished using soft bait or light overhead gear combos. They offer a lot of fun on light gear, and there will be times when they are the most effective lure in the arsenal.
