Happiness is long casts, tight lines & bent rods

« on: May 08, 2007, 09:10:05 PM »

I will be starting to plug and I have been seeing a lot of new rigs since I last fished with any regularity.

I like the saltwater spinner baits I have a couple I will be trying out in blue and white with a silver blade. I also have one in chartreuse and white with a gold blade. 

I have a number of Bombers in different colors from blue to black and a few other colors in between. Plus the blue and white Hopkins in different sizes.

I know I have to experiment because each day is so much different than the next not to mention each tide.  I guess my question is if you had only two lures to chose from to fish with what would they be?

Well maybe this thread will allow a lot of us the ability to go out there without clam or bait in hand and catch (on a regular basis)anything off the beach.

I see more and more people using artificial lures.  It is just like fishing freshwater only the equipment is a lot bigger and the movement of the presentation is a more aggressive (sometimes).

When I pounded the sand I would ALWAYS use a black bomber at night and the ol' schoolbus (yellow/black scales)during the day.

I would also use hopkins metal.

On lures and metals I would always use a teaser about 18" above the lure.  Black, white and yellow were my preferred colors for the teaser hair.  A majority of the catch would be on the teaser.  The theory is the bigger fish (bomber) would be chasing the smaller fish (teaser) and the striper would go for the easier catch, that being the tired out smaller fish.

These were my predominant lures.  I would also use a needlefish, the eel tins and any assortment that looked appealing to me that day.

Hi Irish,

I agree with your post ...

One interesting thing I noticed that yellow seems to work for me at dawn and dusk as I think this imititates bunker/herring and such pretty good in low light ...

I absolutely agree with you on including a teaser.

Thanks,

Hi Paul,

I am not married to a color, but recently I have been using more browns and olives. I have just about every color.

If you put a gun to my head, I would pick white these days.

Thanks,

Ok Ed, I have been trying to look up your AVA 47 - green tube lures but can not find them.  Who makes them and can I get them locally?

A Popper Lure and a Teaser. Whatever you decide to throw, just always have on a teaser, it will increase your hook up ratio. It's like tossing 2 lures at one time. As for AVA 47's , AVA Jigs are just a brand of the standard crome diamond jig. The number represents the weight, 47 is 4 oz. 67 is 6oz. and so on. You can get them plain(no tube) ,or with colored tubes. They are available at all of our local tackle shops. They are also one of my favorite lures.I have caught more fish on diamond jigs than any other lure, but the strike on a topwater lure is just plain cool. <'((((><

Thanks F-D,  Now I understand.  I have a few diamond jigs but I haven't used them in a long time.  If I remember right the ones I have have a buck tail that I put on long ago.  I will have to take a longer look at them to see if the split rings and the hooks are ok before I use them.

Thanks again... thumbs up

Hi Paul,

One right here on my desk ... I put it on the scanner and the picture is ok.

Every Bait and Tackle (and Walmart) has these for about $4.00.

There are many sizes 007; 017; 027; 047; 067; etc. Some people call them Diamond Jigs.

I can drop a few off if you want.

Ed

Thanks Ed, Yeah I see the difference these resemble a spearing or similar bait fish and are more flat as oppose to having that diamond shape.

I will be stopping by Wal Mart tomorrow for a honey do I will look for them there if not I will make a trip to Grumpys. If they don't have them I will take you up on your offer 

I stopped at B & N today to pick up this months NJ Angler and I have to agree with someones remark about the non friendly atmosphere there.  The person behind the counter wasn't very pleasant.  I tried to strike up a conversation and all I got was a yep or nope.  I was the only one in the store at the time.

Oh well, they still have some great stuff even so... Smiley

Hi Paul,

Grumpys definitely has them.

As for B&N, John is a long-time friend. I am not sure who is working when but I have heard similar things lately.

When I see John I will alert him.

Of course, I will blame you (LOL).

Thanks,

Oh that will surely get his attention.  I wish I had my 69 GTO again.  Now you got me going.  I had a metallic blue with a black vinyl top, 69 goat with the works ram air, 400ci, with a 1/4 race cam, 4-11 rear.

We use to race at Raceway Park a lot don't ask me what class I forgot but that park was started because of us.  I use to live in Old Bridge and was friends with the Police Chiefs son who knew the owner of the farm that had this private air strip on it.  We use to race there way too cool at the time.  Now it is too commercial. 

See what you did.  Memory Lane time...

Thanks I needed that... thumbsup2 thumbsup2 thumbsup2

Yeah, I was over at Grumpy's this afternoon and picked up a few things.  I picked up 2 AVA-47s in two different shades if green, something similar to the Gibbs popper in white pearl with a red popper area, and something that resembles a needle fish in chrome with a bucktail over the treble hook.

I was looking at the crippled hering lures but decided not to pick them up this week (limited budget).  Maybe next week I'll see either that or maybe a new rod for plugging.  I will have to try the couple out I have to see if I like the feel.

Thanks guys for all your help.  I know this has helped out not only me but those viewing this thread.  If anyone else has a question or would like to add more input please.  This is the place to do it.
