    I received a bunch of free squish jigs, 80g to 160g.

    Anyone know what I can use them for?

    I have shimano flatfalls, 250g, but nothing lighter. Can these lighter lures be use for tuna?

    Calicos mainly. You can use them for yellows that are in shallower water. Less weight slower the fall

    If you can catch a 2oolb tuna on a 3" anchovie I would think a 160gr Squish Jig would do the job as well.

    The Squishes are new to me as well. Confirmed today that the 160g Pink Ice with the factory assist hooks (with a bit of squid on each) will work for local 1/2-boat sculpin jigged just off of the bottom at 200'-240'.

    Looking forward to targeting pelagics with the Squishes later in the year.

    I literally bought out a turners squish section when I heard the discontinuation. I love thoes light squish jigs there GREAT YO YO jigs for yellows caught plenty of limits with them next to guys fishing 6x's bones eat them up! YFT BFT both eat them up. Jigging works on rockfish. Cuda/bass EVERYTHING eats thoes jigs. I live and fish SD waters 3-5 times a week and there are my go to "iron" live them I know it's a different fishery down here but fishing any islands with them or kelp will and should produce! Good luck.
