Default New Plug

Well what a shock when I got home today and found a fed ex envelope addressed to me. I must say THANKS!!!!! I can't wait to try out the plug. Jim if I can read your writing, you said it was one of Roc's handmade plugs right? So a big thanks out to you both. Can't wait to get my Fish-Aholic Tshirts in so I can return the generosity. And I am anxious to see how I do with the plug. Plugging isn't something we do very often in the bay. Its more swimbaits and bucktails. Maybe I'll have to go plug the Surf on Assateague Island as the big girls go cruising by. Again many thanks.......

I don't use big plugs myself. I find that when I am in the boat plugging that I am in a school of fish with birds working a lot of times. big fish swim under the smaller fish on top and If you use smaller plugs ,you don't miss as many. I find that you get more hits. I am not looking for the big fish all the time. I just love to plug and when I get fish 24 inches or more, a'm happy. I am a plugger. I can plug for hours if the fish are there. The other thing is that I find the bait is smaller then years ago. I use the tube and worm a lot of times ,but if the fish are on top ,Im on top. There is just something about a fish trailing your plug. I have been fishing for over 50 years and I'm not sick of it yet.

Those big plugs work well trolled on wire line, move them slow, that's mostly what I do with them, another good trick which has taken me many big fish is to run a dropper loop 18" above the plug, affix a red gill,5" white or red pork rind or even a bucktail teaser ahaead of it, I think it's a compitition thing, alot of big fish grab that teaser... My first 50 lb bass was caught fishing with a yellow gibbs darter, with a teaser in front of it... the dam bass grabbed the 5" red pork rind at the tip of the south jetty on a night so foggy i culdnt find the marina so I fished off of the jetty, of coarse back then I didnt even have a depth finder in the boat, never mind GPS and radar!

they are heavy, most of those plugs are 3 ounces....

Your right on Roc. big fish ,hit big plugs. I don't use wire to much these days. I use lead core. It's easier to keep track of how much line in out . I only use wire if I need to get down. I find shore fisherman use bigger plugs. to contend with the wind and to get it out farther. I used more wood in the old days. I find myself using the tube more now a days.
