Thanks as always for the tip. How could I apply this if I have to buy online? Are there specific sizes that work well together? For example: 4 inch bait and 3/0 hook? Something like that?

Thanks Tony, I’m a new fisher and eager to improve. I was wondering what the best times are for flounder: as in time, year, and tide.

Thanks Tony, as always you provide us with good stuff. Do you try and color coordinate jig head with lure?

Please do a video on rigging a soft plastic such a Berkley Gulp 3 inch Shrimp with a “weed less ” set up? The tackle shop said there is not a weed less jig head….

Well done Tony. Sometimes the smallest details make all the difference. Especially when we get in a hurry in the water. And don’t want to retie
