Fluke Rigs – Silver Ball Rigs

How to Find and Catch Weakfish Target the elusive northeastern tide runner this spring. Kirk Fay posted Apr 27th, at 3: The delicate-mouthed gamer is tough to land even after the hookup. Kramer loves his Mackinaw peaches as much as some diehards, like me, love targeting weakfish in spring. When fishing for weakfish, keep in mind that their finesse outweighs fight. Weakfish get their name because of their paper-thin mouths.

Jump to; Lures Bait and tackle To fish for the most popular game fish species in the Indian River Lagoon, a good quality basic spinning outfit for lb test line will work just fine. My favorite is a seven foot medium action rod with a spinning reel holding about yards of line. I use a Shakespeare Ugly Stik Intracoastal graphite spinning rod, 7 foot, medium action, and rated for 6 to 12 lb test line. I have always been a fan of Ugly Stiks because even though the rod’s action is listed as “medium”, the tip has a lighter action for more sensitivity when casting lightweight lures such as un-weighted soft plastic lures or freelined live shrimp.

For a reel, any good quality spinning reel capable of holding about yards of whatever LB test of line you wish to use will work just fine. It is rated for 8 to 12 LB test and will hold about yards of 10 LB test mono.

1/4oz weedless BT black/black; hookup lures weedless bucktails were designed for fishing shallow and/or grassy areas. Our weedless bucktails are available in 10 fish attracting color combinations and two different sizes (1/4 oz.

Why did you switch? Answer SPRO bucktails were really the best bucktails available when we first started using them. In fact, we used them well before they ever came aboard to support the show. The finish is excellent, the hooks Gamakatsu were super sharp, and eventually they even made them large enough to be effective for deep water fluke. We caught loads of fish on these bucktails, but we always had a few nagging issues. The thin wire size of the hook on the SPRO bucktail created two problems.

The hook point was easily deflected when we fished on hard bottom and when that happened the bucktail needed to be replaced. The small wire size on the hook, also meant a small barb and when you work a fast bucktail it was easy for the bait to come off especially when using spearing. The other issue we had with SPRO that everyone experiences is that the wraps were continually coming undone especially after multiple fish.

I have a tray full of bucktails needing hair if anyone has the patience to re-wrap them. The SPRO bucktail was very effective provided the angler worked it is vertically as possible. However, as the scope of the line increased it would lay on its side. We reached out to the folks at HookUp Lures and asked them to make us a bucktail that addressed all those issues.
