I have a 6 inch open pour swimbait that I use for bass. I've been thinking about getting some plastisol that's made for saltwater and making some swimbaits for lings. Go fish them off the jettys.

You could use the plastisol you have now, Its just softer and will have more action. The downside is its not as durable and lingcod will tear it up faster.

Ive done pipe jigs and bullet jigs

Bullet jigs 4 oz 8 oz 10 oz 12 oz 16 oz

Pipe jigs super easy also, i got end caps on mine because it looked cleaner and made the pipes fall straight rather than crimping it.

I just recently starting pouring my own soft plastics too which is also pretty fun.

I use the Do-It mold for the 4 oz and then a custom one off ebay for the 8-16 ounce.
Ok another question, what brand mold are you using for your 8oz and up bullet jigs?

Here they are. Ugly, but it is dark down there. Impale a herring on the hook with some stretchy thread, good to go! And there cheap

Add a swivel between the hook and you will lose less from twisting off. And the rubber is an insulator. They probably would fish better without something thatís reducing the electrical signal and vibration being put off.
