Hookup at vidz live for feee
This is ideal when light-tackle fishing for striped bass, snook, tarpon, sailfish, tuna, and also heavy-duty drifting over wrecks for big amberjack and grouper.
An alternative to nostril hooking is to jaw-hook a bait.
A bait hooked near its anal fin can be manipulated into a specific area.
The current was slow, so we placed a few baits at the surface.
Best yet, the hook weight and placement, and tugging, forced it deeper.
On the first drift that bait yielded a sailfish; it was a great start to a day that ultimately produced a few kingfish, blackfin tuna and a dolphin.
Offshore anglers can free-line the bait out a few hundred yards, jerk it off the hook, reel in, and then rebait with a fresh one.
A constantly working live-bait rod is an excellent addition for pelagics, particularly when live-chumming.
