    I don't use live pogies all that often but was looking to keep 6-10 pogies alive for a day on my buddies small boat. Can I just keep them in a 5gal bucket? Please let me know your thoughts. :thu:

    I'm just starting to catch stripers and have witnessed some guys catching lots of fish while others just sit around watching. I know they are jigging with pogies, but not sure howw they are weighted (placement) or hooked. I have heard that the pogies are skewered to keep them straight but would...
