The fewer hooks, the better. Nothing worse than hooking a sa did with a six hooked Rat L Trap. I’ve known people who grab a pair of pliers and whack off the other two hooks on a treble. Either that or don’t grab the fish, just use pliers. Guess how I know?!? Something that can sink fast and cast far also helps

Small swimbaits are awesome. 2" long. Storm makes some good ones with the hook and lead built into them. AND 1 hook! I've been hooked twice with those dang sandies using multiple hook baits!!

Heddon clear baby torpedo. Take front treble off and bend barbs down. Just wind. Fun to watch them chase it.


Some people go to church and think about fishing. Some go fishing and think about God.

It's alot of fun watching the kids trying to keep the torpedo from the sandies. Bending down those barbs will save you time & trouble. Little Georges work good also.

Given the current situation, the title of this thread made me think it might belong in the bunker!

I like the Heddon Spit'n Image, shad color. Crank it hard and watch the schools of sandies chase it until one gets lucky.

Hint: Also a great lure for Bass.


I'm glad there are wine drinkers in this world ..... it saves more beer for the rest of us.

Mepps XD - casts really far - all you do is reel it in. Caught a lot of them with it.

Surfacing whites will hit anything you throw at them. Like stated I stay away from treble hooks because they are a pain.
