It's all about the motion in the ocean. The fish don't care how it was made.

OCT is tried and true. MW are newer but are gonna be well sought after in my opinion.

These are the 2 I use.

Last year was one of the best local surface iron bites I’ve seen at Clemente. Did a iron only overnight charter trip on the Fury last year and it was epic. I finished with 6 surface iron fish in that 15-25lb grade, lost 3 fish too. Just gotta get out there and sling it, plenty of yellows around both out at the islands and down the Baja coast. Plus it’s nice going fishing with just 3 rods all 10’ 😂

They are called Murder Weapons.

Ray Summer (Owner/Operator of Vendetta/Voodoo Sportfishing) took some of his best swimming jigs and then had them copied utilizing CNC machines with machine shop owner Joe Odneal. You can see them/find them on fb. They are fast swimming jigs. I believe they are up to 4 jigs now, Sidewinder, Viper and their mini counterparts.

    Only used some otc irons. They swim well. Bought them when charkbait closed in San Diego. Wouldn't hesitate to buy any cnc made lures, if I find them on sale.

    BTW, to tie this back to the original post, many CNC jigs were used on this trip, Randy Steel was on it as well and his jigs killed it, both the yo-yos and surface irons.

    I've heard Tady and Salas irons catch a lot of fish but I've never seen it and definitely not by me. I've bought about a dozen of each and I've never had a good swimmer. But I have landed a bunch of fish on my stingers kickers and OCT 10.
