Does anyone know where I can find Gitzem Jig Heads in the WSB model with the 8/0 hooks? Specifically, I'm looking for 1/2 oz to 1.5 oz in white glow color. Also, I would love to hear feedback from anyone who has fished squid for WSB using these jig heads. Thanks.

Longfin is where i used to get them but ebay has them too.I have a bunch,alot of people swear by the green ones.Any glow or even non glow jig head will work just as well though just keep your bait moving.

Ive used them with slugs for calicos and cuda..never used them for seabass. They make a slug drop in a corkscrew spiral pattern..

Thanks for the feedback so far, I think the Getzem WSB special is fairly new. The standard 3/4 oz comes with a 3/0 or 4/0 hook whereas the 3/4 oz WSB Special comes with an 8/0 hook. I've heard that it's a great jig head for fishing squid, even better than the classic banana shaped jig heads. I have looked everywhere online with no luck so any information on where to find them would be greatly appreciated. I tried the Longfin and the lady who answered the phone said they don't have them, but I'm not so sure she knew what I was talking about, going to try talking to Frank or Eric tomorrow. Ebay only has the 2 oz. version. Below is what they look like.

Looking at the web it looks like Newport Tackle is closed, don't know if it's the Covid thing or permanently, I'll give Performance Tackle a shot if the Longfin doesn't have them. Thanks!

Yes, they just got a shipment in and they had all colors and all sizes. I bought several of the glow color.
