OK. I've got a trip coming up to a local river where I drift a certain hole and consistently get into nice flatheads while trying for walleyes. I use 1/4-3/8 oz jigheads with a 3" plastic tail and tip it with a magnum fathead minnow. I upgraded last season from walleye rods, 6'3" long with 8 lb braid, to medium rods, 7'6" long and 15 lb braid. I am looking for some jigheads that are made on at least 2x wire hooks so I can put a little more heat on them without bending the jig hook back and losing them. I thought about trying hand tied steelhead jigs as they are made with stronger hooks. Anybody with a good suggestion? Thanks in advance and tight lines this fall!!

Got lots of the fireball jigs and you're right about the heavy wire hook. I was looking for something with a bigger hook gap though. Keitech makes a round ball jighead for bass fishing that looks like it might do the job. Thanks for the suggestion craw.

The Northland fireball jugs have pretty beefy hooks.  Otherwise you should look into bass jigs.  They usually have the heavy hooks you are looking for.
