    For those who have posted how to fish a Sluggo, thanks for the tips. I have been hesitant to use them as I never felt like I was fishing them correctly. Last night I went with all black 7" and fished them low and slow and it worked great. Five Stripers from 30-34" and a bunch of other bumps so...

    Hi, I'm new to striper fishing and to this sight and have read a lot about the slug-go lure. I watched the youtube videos by Steve Mckenna but was still wondering how others fish this lure and what conditions to use it in. Thanks

    I think i'm going to try adding small rattles to my 9' sluggo's. Cut a small slit, slid it in and glue shut. Do you think a striper would shy away? Worth a shot! Anyone ever try this? I know smallmouth like it, but thier a very curious fish by nature, not sure if stripers are...

    I have not done much artificial fishing for stripers. I read tons of stories on people catching 40+ inchers on slug gos..Forgive me for being dumb but how do you fish these? As far as retrieval goes? God knows it would save me some money on bait if i could learn how and when to fish these...

    Anyone had experience using the 12" Sluggo? Is it rigged the same as 9" (Mckenna style with two hooks joined with dacron)? Does it need to be weighted? How is it fished? Also your thoughts regarding the color. I fish mostly off the shore. tight lines to you all

    I have been heaving my black or white Slug-gos into the Merrimack for about a month or so now. No luck. I think that I am pretty far up the river for a lot of Stripers at this point in the season but last night I went down to the mouth at Plum Island. I caught one Little guy early on in the...

    ok, it's been just over a year since i first saw herb reed and the 12" sluggo and after many delays it's finally here. ordered a few pre-rigged and three each of the three colors they're available in, white,black,and eel, un-rigged. the rigged are kind of pricey at $19 for a package of three.the...

    I've started fishing the 9" unweighted Sluggos pretty hard the last month and I've run into a question. I fish them real slow, painfully slow, like a live eel. I've caught a bunch of blues, and missed a bunch of blues, as they attack the tail. The blues I've landed are in the 8#+ class. They...

    I got some rainbow trout sluggos, 6 inches long... Anything? I was looking at some previous threads and Jim said that people get spooked when a striper takes a trout off their line, so will they work? Im just curious because the local palce didnt have the colors on the front so I just opicked...
