My sister, who live in New York, would like to purchase an outfit that would be good for large striped bass (20 to 40 lb). She has been out on trips where the large stripers are being caught and was concerned about being able to handle the fish. She is 5’3” tall. 125 pounds and works out with...
Just curious if anybody has ever tried (or uses still) the Tube-N-Worm rig in the Hudson ? Catch any fish, tips or tricks ?
I read about them over the winter and know guys use them in the salt.
I was hoping someone could clear something up for me. I have used a float rig before but not one like this:
Do you allow the float to slide up the leader to the hook or do you use a stop somewhere along the leader? Can't seem to find the info anywhere. Want to try some different rigs this...

Just learned about a technique being used with circle hooks known as bridle rigging, with the idea being that the hook is set just off the bait, as opposed to through the bait. This will apparently prevent the hook "turning" and being buried in the bait, thus preventing hook-ups.
I am a novice budget fisherman. I am planning to pier/jetty fish on Raritan bay in NJ.
I saw the uglystick striper salt/fresh water combo but I am not able to find any reviews.
Would you reccommend this to a novice who goes out for 3-4 hours a couple times a month?
I fish from shore almost exclusively and have been using the fish finder rigs for bloods for years... recently I have been having some issues with tangles where the swivel meets the main line/leader/fishfinder with the leader twisted around the main line preventing the system to...
I'll be fishing the Colorado River lakes soon and I'm interested in your favorite size/color teasers and trailers for umbrella rigs. I'll be fishing a 4 arm rig with 8 teasers and a single trailer. What are your favorites?
How do you rig a 6'' Shad / better way ?
Whats the best way. I find that the weighted hooks are to heavy on the big hooks. Alot of times I find myself wanting a big hook with little weight in shallow water. So I make you own. What do you do.
I've made some umbrella rigs and troll 20-30 feet deep n(downrigger) in freshwater lakes with a large Storm devil eye shad chasing the teasers.
Works often when slabs don't.
Also use some very large saltwater divers rigged like a Hellpet.
Hello to all, new to the forum here. I went fishing the other night from 9:30 to 12:30 off the beach in Long Beach Island. Used a fish finder rig with 4 oz lead pyramid and hard clams. Conditions were perfect, harvest moon, 65 degrees (water prob around 70) and light wind. The surf was...
