Silly jigs have a bunch of different names: Crazy jigs, goofy jigs, banana jigs. No matter what you call them, these lures are fantastic for catching pompano and flounder and do a good job on a number of other species.
The silly jig originated in the freshwater market, where it’s still used to catch walleye on the Great Lakes. The flattened shape imparts a side-to-side wobbling motion to the lure, and walleye anglers often tip the hooks with leeches or nightcrawlers. It’s hard to say when someone first cast one in the salt or what they thought they were going to catch, but over the past few years they’ve become quite popular. And for good reason — they catch fish.
