Northland Fishing Tackle’s Tungsten Short-Shank Jig uses Northland’s legendary Short-Shank Fire-Ball® Jig design in a Tungsten offering. Molded from Tungsten which is 30% more dense than lead, this jig has a faster fall rate and less drag in the water. This allows anglers to use a lighter tungsten jig than typically used when fishing a comparable sized lead jig. In addition, the hardness of tungsten increases sensitivity and allows anglers to feel exactly what's on the bottom. It features a premium short-shank wide-gap hook and dual bait keepers that lock on soft plastics and live bait. The Tungsten Jig comes in 3 size ⅛, ¼ and ⅜ and 8 colors. They are available 2 per card and 4 or 5 per card bulk packs 

  • Made from eco friendly heavy weight tungsten that is 30% denser than traditional lead jigs
  • Tungsten’s hardness allows anglers better feel for bottom contact and lite bites
  • Premium Mustad Ultra Point Short-shank wide gap hook and dual hook keepers lock on soft plastic and live bait
  • Red “T” eyes easily distinguish tungsten

    This is a terrific jig for live bait. Minnows, leaches etc. Short hook does a great job to get fish to eat bait. Great feel with these jigs. Using Tungsten makes me feel better about not using lead.

    the short shank black jig is my go to...i use the 1/8 oz size the most but the 1/16 is quickly becoming a second. Drops faster than lead and absolutely helps with better accurate cast and hooksets are usually in the bone not the skin of the fish

    These are some great jigs, the wide gap hooks are great for hook up percentages. The paint is great I fish a lot around rock piles and the paint has lasted extremely well. As for the price there spendy. I like to have more but only buy a few at time.

    Was walleye fishing up on Lake of the Woods this past October 01 - October 06, so got in 5.5 days of fishing, caught 221 walleyes thus averaging 40/day, all on the tungsten short shank wide gap 1/8 oz jig, Sunrise/Parakeet/Bubblegum/Firetiger/Gold colors all worked equally well, really like the jig, and I think the large eyes on the jig make the fish target the ‘head-half’ of the minnow on the jig thus close to the hook for higher percentage hookups.
