Mud Minnows For Offshore Fishing

how to rig mud minnows

Many anglers choose to fish offshore structure for redfish, flounder, and black sea bass using bucktail jigs or other forms of live bait.

Weedless spoon jigs have even been known to work for black sea bass hanging around offshore reefs.

Carolina Rig

As far as rigging choices, we rely on the standard Carolina Rig for offshore live bait fishing.

Depending on where you are fishing, egg sinker weights may vary.

But, your rig should look standard to a normal Carolina Rig starting with your egg sinker, then leading to a bead and the swivel connected to 40-lb monofilament tipped with your bait hook.
