I'm new to fishing hybrids and wanted to get some gear to give it a try. Can anyone recommend what jig heads work best? How heavy of a jig head should I be buying? Any advice on what plastics to use for dead sticking hybrids/strippers? I'm looking to give Bridgeport a shot next week. Any help would be much appreciated.
Definetly order the deadheads from Moes Tackle. When it comes to dead sticking jig heads there isn't just nothing that compares. His flukes are tough also and last a long time. Hollow body flukes are easier to rig for a beginner but Moes last longer when the fishing gets good.
Slow is the key during the winter. If you can find the birds working on Bridgeport then sneak in and dead stick them. You will learn fast. If the fishing is slower use your electronics and fish the fluke right in there face or slightly above.
As the water warms stroll swim baits from Moes or Wildeyes. Just pull them slowly over fish you see on you electronics.
Call Kieth Bunch on Bridgeport and pay him to take you fishing. He can learn ya about deadstickin
