The jig is an excellent lure for deep vertical jigging. I just came off of a trip and caught 3 bluefin tuna up to 180 pounds, I did re-rig the jig by adding a top assist hook, but the jig performed flawlessly at depths exceeding 400 feet.

Great jig for groupers
October 10, 2020
This jig is very good for groupers as it doesn’t need to retrieve it all the way up, just strong stroke once hit the bottom and let it flatter slowly and expect a hit ;)

You can just free spool it down and let the fish hit it. No need to tire yourself out with a jigging motion. However, it is a but pricey
Proseasy to work
Consexpensive for a chunk of flashy lead

Butterfly jigs are the best bait I have ever used. I have caught every type of fish in the ocean with this jig in chartreuse/white they are AJ and cobia killers. Love to cast them and let them sink or work them vertical. Unless current is bad then I use a knife type jig. Never fish without this bait in your tackle seriously!!!
Proscatch fish sometimes better than real bait. Throw this bait in front of any cobia and you got a strike guaranteed. In 3yrs 40 cobia caught.
ConsI dont like the hooks if you get a toothy fish you might loose them because of the braid .I use a 1/0 trebble or the same hooks with cable 65lb the split rings are a little weak, I upgrade those to.

Slow jig or cast and retrieve
May 7, 2020
So far these do exactly as advertised, they flutter and wobble on the fall. I love the colors they come in as well. These lures flash in brown and brackish river water. They also cast and retrieve well too and are fun to work with light tackle. If you cast them make sure your rod can handle 80 grams or 2.8 oz.

80g Jigs
March 24, 2020
Awesome jigs for snapper, tuna, roosterfish, and pretty much anything else. I use these jigs down in Costa Rica. They come in plenty of weights and colors which can help narrow down the species.
ProsGreat colors Great sizes great action- especially on the free fall
ConsI prefer to twitch where the hooks are placed. With the hooks at the eyes and tying to the solid ring.

Great lures
May 30, 2019
When the guys you go fishing with use different jigging techniques or use bait while you use these low effort jigs and land more and bigger fish it's well worth it. I have already ordered more as backup in case I lose some. Been using the 80g jigs in areas as shallow as 40 feet.
ProsLow effort and fun to use.
ConsSome of my jigs have the paint chipping off after two outings. However this won't prevent me from buying these, love them.

Most Versatile Jig You Can Own
November 26, 2018
Pitch it out and let it free spool the bottom, reel it up how ever much you want and let it fall again. Cast it out away from the boat and let it fall for a while, reel it back towards you, let it fall again. This jig can be fishing in so many ways for so many species. It can also fish through all different water columns. Landed 3 large bonito on my recent trip to Catalina. The erratic action and silver flash entice fish. I would get hit on retrieve and on the fall. My favorite color is the Blue Sardine in 100g and 160g.
ProsGreat action Super versatile Sharp hooks Great variety of size.
ConsOnly thing I noticed was the split ring on the were not the best. I could use my finger nail to pry it open. Suggest upgrading the split rings on most Shimano jigs. Wish Shimano had more bait fish color for this jig wish the finish was a but more durable since tooth critters crush lead with there teeth and scrap off the colors.

Jumbo Bluefin
November 15, 2018
I caught a 225lb and a 185lb BFT on these jig at San Clemente, but you have to switch out the hooks to a much larger 9/0 single, or assist rig for the jumbo BFT. Also must rig mono with an abrasion grommet at the eye. Let it flutter down 200-300 feet, and then 7-8 cranks, pause....and then again, pause...and so on. Don't set hook when fish bites just reel and don't stop until fish sets hook himself. Go for it!

Superb Quality and Easy to Use !
September 30, 2018
I never used jigs because I was a "live bait" guy for many years and never thought I needed to use jigs to catch fish. This year I decided to give jigs a try and so I searched around and spoke with many anglers on which type and/or brand to use. It seems the consensus was the "hottest ticket" right now to catching fish here in Southern California waters is using these Shimano Flat Falls, especially the glow in the dark ones. Let me tell you, they weren't kidding. These Flat Fall jigs are super easy to use and work really well for catching all kinds of fish! They are able to catch from your everyday Rockfish to a "fish of a lifetime" jumbo Bluefin Tunas! I would seriously recommend and if you are serious about your gear to give these Shimano Flat Fall jigs a try! You won't be disappointed!

Works well for tunas. Can even snag a decent bass or rockfish on random occasions as it hits the bottom. However, when targeting yellowtail, stick to your traditional yo yo irons (tady, salas, etc.).

When I first ran into these jigs, I said to myself "Hmm I wonder if these really work??" being that they're just a piece of lead with a flat shape and fancy paint! Well guess what fellow fishing enthusiast, these REALLY WORK! First time using one of them, I had the 130G targeting snappers and maybe some groupers, little did I know I hooked on to a speeding monster that almost melted my drag with a powerful run! I was not expecting that at all and to make matters worst, I was using my light tackle so I lost the fish before nearly spooling me! After that date I went directly to Tackledirect and loaded up on some, and ever since I've been getting my butt whoop hooking on to monsters with these Jigs!
ProsEase of use
ConsWill make you sore and hurt your back from fighting monster when using these!

My favorite jig
August 1, 2017
The flat fall jig is so versatile that can be used with both fast and slow pitching techniques. But, of course, it is a slow jig (long fall works nicely). I usually place extra assist hooks but it's not mandatory. Snappers love it.
ProsEasy to jig It does catch fish
By Kai

Really easy to fish
July 31, 2017
A lot of guys try to fish these jigs like traditional west coast "iron", but don't. The secret is letting them fall, hence the name. They fall/flutter at pretty slow speed given their weight. Just make sure to give your line complete slack when they do fall, otherwise the tension from the line with impede the inherent action.

130g Shimano Fall Flat Jigs
February 9, 2017
Great product! Very effective and easy to fish. I also use speed jigs and we just took a trip to the Bahamas and fished 100-200' of water for snapper and the 130g jigs were perfect for the deeper water. The fish absolutely love them and they require very little work to fish them. After a couple hours of speed jigging a 6 oz butterfly I needed a chiropractor. My girlfriend fished the 130g (4 oz) fall flat and caught more fish than I did and the only strain on her body came from the fish. They are a welcome innovation!

Amberjack candy
April 22, 2016
I used the chartreuse colored jig and caught a huge Amberjack on my very first drop. Afterwards, I ended up catching 3 more undersized amberjack (under 34") that I had to toss back into the water. Not once did I drop the jig and not hook up on an amberjack. I went fishing out of Galveston, TX. I did swap out the 2 hooks on the bottom of the jig and replaced them with one larger hook, and I installed a 2nd hook at the top of the jig. On a previous trip I also caught a skip jack tuna and a king fish... it attracts a wide variety of species
Prosthe drop will create all the movement/flutter on it's own; in other words you don't have to use a jigging rod and tire yourself out. amberjack candy. on a previous trip I also caught a skip jack tuna and a king fish
ConsI feel the hooks are too small and the jig cords too thin, especially if you hook into a sharp-toothed fish like a king mackerel. So I swap them out with danging/stinger hooks that I make myself.

Great Lure
April 11, 2016
Does its job, what else can you say? Cast it in, open your bail and let it sink. Once it hits the bottom reel it in half way and let it drop again. Keep an eye on your line, once you see it moving, close the bail, reel in your slack and then hold on!
ProsQuality construction and strong hooks.

Killer Jig for Tuna
October 30, 2014
I've fished the 80g flat fall a lot this season offshore for great results on the yellowtail, yellowfin, and skipjack. I prefer the lighter jig for my offshore applications since it sinks slower and stays in the strike zone longer. I've had equal hook up ratio on the fall as well as the retrieve. Unlike other Shimano Butterfly Jigs, you can just reel fast on a straight wind for the jig to kick and entice the bites. No need for any jigging cadence. This is my new confidence jig for my SoCal offshore trips.
Pros-Durable finish and quality hooks -Easy to get the jig to kick well on the fast retrieve

September 17, 2014
A must have for Yellowfin Tuna. I was on a 2.5 days trip out of San Diego, fishing at San Clemente Island. I caught 16 tunas on Flat-Fall Jigs, 2 tunas on live baits. Live baits works, but you have to be at the bait tank and wait for deck hand. Me I just go to the front of the boat and drop my jig strait down. Most of the time I got bit on the drop. Because it drop strait down, I avoid tangle with other anglers.
