Those look good mt


Hooking a fish is like playing string with a cat. The exact size, shape, color of string matters less than how you wiggle it- and little cats are easier to fool than big ones. John Gierach

Sorry Lewis, was out of town so didn't see your question.

I use just a typical setup with the jig/slab or jig/swimbait setup. Tie a 1/16th or so jig with whatever kind of body you have luck with about 12"-24" above a slab/swimbait. I use a dropper loop so the jig swims and falls more naturally.

I have had most luck with yellow/orange tube bodies or curly tail grubs for the jig and 1/2-3/4 oz. chart or silver slabs/sassy shads.

Like I said before, only downside to this versus the cork is you can't let it sit in the strike zone as long, but I have an easier time casting and more variation on the retrieve.

Most people I see using them are bank fisherman with 12 foot surf rods to reach schooling fish far off the bank. If you have a boat and trollimg motor...not really a need to buy those rigs. If they are schooling...they will hit about anyyhing. The main thing is reaching them while they are surfacing.

And even then...it is often the smaller fish on yop. The bigger, wiser fish just wait underneath the school for injured shad to drift down. They let the young pups do all the work for them.

I got mine when I fished Lake Texoma as a kid back in the mid 1960's.
We used it for Sandies/ White Bass.
It is a red and white Weighted cork Bobber with 2 white Flies.
I still have it and I'm 67 yo.

I have you by 3 years, I believe I still have some also. I can remember acres of sand bass surfacing.
