Are there any tackle stores in the OC that carries Caivo jigs?
Goldenwest Swap meet. He's got a tackle stand there.
For those wondering his shop is in Long Beach off of Long Beach Blvd just south of willow, about a mile south of the 405.
He not only makes great jigs but some of his other products are excellent as well and the prices can't be beat.
I just spent 400.00 on Lucanus style jigs for a buddy in the Bay area.
I also do all of my shopping for my Alaska trips there.
Freshwater hooks and small offshore bait hooks as well. when it comes to the bigger bait hooks I still rely on Trokar.
Thanks Juan. Live right down the street from there so will check it out this weekend.
Interesting looking jig. Wonder how they swim backwards.
Looks like the hooks are on the wrong end, but if they work, WTH?
They swim best slow. The action is great.This is after a single 3/4 trip with no fish caught. Paint didn't hold well for me. I'll keepem for calico. Your mileage may vary. Same trip ended with 5 YT on a mint/white 7x.
How do the smaller version of the Caivo jigs swim?? Do you guys that use them fish the smaller 2.2 oz. jigs when the fish are on smaller baits or do they tend to swim better at faster/slower speeds than the 3.2 oz jigs?? Would you compare them to a Tady C, or a 7X jr, or Kicker 15 light or Tady A1?? Thanks in advance.
Here is a size comparison between the two sizes of Caivo jigs. The larger model is roughly a Tady 45 size
so i ordered caivo jig off ebay and one of the barbs on the trebled hook is flattened
From what he told me himself. You can go to the store in Long Beach and Jimmy will replace it.
He will exchange it
such a far drive from riverside
Call him. Im sure he will make it right
Any San Diego shop have these in stock?
nope. your best bet is ordering online
Or order them by sending a PM to Jamie aka "fishordie" here on BD. If I am not mistaken Bob Sands Fishing Tackle is still doing the Fred Hall deals till the end of the month that includes a free jig. It was the best deal at the show.
Personally I like to make my jigs swim. It's called jigging. There's no pride in Wanting the jigs to swim, and catch fish for them like live bait. When are we going to learn to fish for real.
Jimmy is awesome
