Doc's Goofy Jigs are dynamite lures for catching pompano (and a host of other species as well!). Available in a wide variety of sizes and colors, picking out just the right jig can be a little tricky.
When it comes to picking the correct weight jig the following is a rough guide to get you started. This is by no means set in stone, so don't be afraid to mix it up. SOmetimes a heavier(or lighter) jig is just what it takes to get the bites!
-1/4oz: Ideal for fishing grassflats and other "inshore" pompano areas. Typically used in calmer clearer water situations with little current. Also good from the piers on super calm clear days.
-3/8oz: Most versatile all around size. Great choice for inshore fishing areas, especially those that are a little deeper or have some current. Also a good choice from the pier on days when the wind has a little chop on the water, but overall the water is clear.
-1/2oz: A little heavy for most inshore applications. Best all around size for jigging from a pier. Great choice in a good breeze and when the water has some "color" to it.
-3/4oz: Almost entirely a surf/pier size. Use this size when the wind is blowing, the water is cloudy, ands you need the most distance out of your cast.
-1oz: The biggest of all the Goofy Jigs, use this one only when the wind is really howling and the other sizes just won't get down to the bottom.
