Tips for Targeting Weakfish

Hookup Lures Inshore Bucktail Jigs Hookup Lures manufactures hand-tied Bucktails that have long been recognized for their superior quality, strength and durability. The Inshore series of the Hookup Lures Bucktail Jigs are constructed around super sharp VMC stainless steel hooks and hand tied with precision for both an appealing appearance and equally quality performance. Many anglers use the Inshore series for targeting stripers and largemouth bass in freshwater and redfish, flounder and cobia in saltwater. The cobra style head allows the jig to make its way through the water running true as it sinks or is retrieved by the angler. The hair skirts provide perhaps the most accurate imitation of baitfish when compared to other materials such as silicone or rubber. Excellent scent holding capabilities – add a small single tail grub for the perfect striper bait. This product can expose you to chemicals including Di 2-ethylhexyl phthalate DHEP and lead, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer, and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

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.

For fishing line, there are lots of options.
