Is it advisable to use fresh bait like shrimps or squid on jig heads or are they just meant for soft lures and worms? Found some in local stores and was just wondering if I can try them on saltwater from the shores?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

If you want to use squid strips, then go ahead and try 1/2 oz to 1 oz white bucktail jigs.

Yes, you can use them for bait fishing but unless you are fishing vertically from a boat and using the upturned hook to avoid hooking coral, a simple weight separate from the baited hook is cheaper and more effective.
Jig heads with appropriate soft plastics (or bucktail/feather dressings) are however very effective and work out somewhat cheaper than swimshads.

Hi Ken,
The thing is there is one shop here which has these gamakatsu hooks with jigheads. They looked promising. I mostly do fishing from breakwaters and ocassional bottoming from boat.
