I remember back in the day you would walk into a tackle shot and look at all the jigs on the walls. There was always a couple rows of what looked like metal swimbaits! Anyone know what I’m talking about? They were always in the surface iron section. They seemed to be made of the same metal surface irons were.

    whichever has the longest bunk
    I caught a lot of barracuda on a metal jig called the schnabel back in the day. All metal, slight scoop to the front 2/3, back 1/3 was raised bumps. Shiny chrome usually, although I also saw them painted various colors.

    But then it wasn't a swim bait, really. The only metal swimbait that I use is the original Sebile. That silver with the black back is still wickedly effective.

    Your barracuda jig sounds more like a Spoofer. Schnabel's are like any regular iron...the notable exception is that V shaped stamping near the nose of their jigs, typically painted red.
