Sharp Point Jigheads is a locally owned and operated business, serving the light tackle and fishing industry. For transparency, this is not a paid review, just an honest opinion of a small range of tackle available from Sharp Point.
After meeting Simon Carter at a Yak Hunters event, it is clear that he has a passion for what he does, and this is a vital ingredient for any small business. In fact it could be classed as infectious, to say the least.
After hearing on the grapevine about these deep divers and seeing them on social media, I had to give them a go. After acquiring some of the deep divers, I intended to give them a crack in the freshwater of North Pine Dam to see just how effective they were.
On a particular day, when the bass had shutdown on vertical jigging with spoons, I tied on one of the white deep diving crankbaits imitating a bony bream which I knew the bass feed on in the lake.
Now let’s talk hardware, a pet hate of mine is that manufacturers do such a good job of finishing their masterpieces these days that the lures are so lifelike, however they finish them with crappy terminals tackle and it’s a real turn off. Not so with these bad boys.
Sharp Point runs BK hooks through their crankbaits range, now I had little exposure to these previously, but I can say that I am impressed. They are needle sharp, hold well, and seem to resist corrosion well, although I will confess that I am yet to use these in the brine as yet. They are so sharp however that the only negative is that, like most trebles, they can be dangerous when you have a lively fish in your lap in the yak and exposed swinging trebles: the hooks do what they do, fish or finger.
