Our lures and jigs were created from experience and need. Since early childhood, we've fished for freshwater and saltwater species while paying attention to detail. As a result, Barefoot products are unique and easy to use, built with proven techniques that get bites from freshwater farm ponds, rivers, and streams to the nearshore/offshore.
We genuinely love to fish the offshore waters for bottom fish and pelagics but like to catch fish wherever we are. That is the reason we've created freshwater Circle Hook Chin Weights that are "good on the fish, and good on the fisherman." Since we are releasing bass and most freshwater fish, we created the Barefoot Circle Hook Chin Weights that safely and securely hook fish for a healthy release.
It's not just about the jigs and tackle. It's about giving anyone the ability to catch the larger (and wiser) fish and catch the higher quality of good fish. So we want to share our knowledge, through the videos, about how to make this tackle work best. For example, the Barefoot Jig fishes anything under a popping cork. It is superior to any other jighead because it keeps the (soft plastics) horizontal and jumps from side to side with its built-in action.
The Barefoot Jig is genuinely unlike anything on the Market!

As a commercial fisherman, I've gutted thousands of grouper. The offshore crab was a common denominator of gags and reds - THEY LOVE THEM!
The other bait I frequently found in their stomachs was the grass grunt, aka tomtate. Together, these two baits look like a "happy meal" to the gags and reds.
Scamps don't like the grass grunt as much, but they all are idiots for the cigar minnow combo.
Live baits like jigged-up cigar minnows are candy for grouper, while squid and cut baits will fill the box with big black bass, triggerfish, and other bottom-hugging species. So if you have never tried Tim Barefoot's Crab Decoy Jig, bait one up and give it a try - you will be the one that gets hooked in the end! Giant grouper love 'em!!!
