Tony, I noticed you tied what looks like a loop/rapala knot in the end of that jig. Any particular reason as I’ve only ever seen that on topwater.
My guess was to help the vibration and movement of the lure?
I’ve always had trouble with most of my soft plastics including gulps getting worn out and sliding down the neck of the jig head pretty quickly with most of the jig heads I’ve tried. I recently ended up switching to a jig head that has a little spring at the neck of the head so you actually thread the lure on that work pretty well so my question is do you find that this style of barbed jig head work pretty well at holding the lure on for a decent amount of casts without the lure sliding down and staying in place? The video was awesome Tony especially seeing the demonstrations under water, thank you!
Anyone have any luck bass fishing with the slam shady plastics? Thanks
Absolutely! I like to use them on the surface with an unweighted hook. Rip them over the grass or use them on a weighted hook to fish around the edges of grass or in the grass.
I’ve used them before. They’re good jig heads. On the same line as Slayer to me!!!
For sure! Never had one break or fail on me.
Thanks for the info on the jigheads Tony. You are awesome brother.
My pleasure Ken! Thank you for the kind words!
Nice tips, Tony.
“Out of stock” already?
Unfortunately yes, they went like hot cakes! The good news is we already have more on the way!
Do you have any power prons .
Hey Gerald! We should have some back in within a week or so. Be sure to sign up for notifications on the shop page when they become available. You will see a “notify me when available” button on the item page.
Great video dude! Any tips on types of areas and times of year to focus on for juvenile tarpon?
Thanks Lee! Summer is always the ideal time and you want to look for backwater ponds and creeks in the Central Florida area and south.
Thanks, Tony for this informative video. I am wondering why you hooked the shrimp with the white side up? Baitfish have the white on the belly not the back. Is this technique a personal preference or do you have scientific support that shows the white on top gets more bites?
Thats just the color pattern of that particular shrimp. Some have a dark bottom white top. Some have white bottom dark top. I always rig them based on their profile and not the color. Whichever is the true bottom of the bait, I make sure it’s rigged up that way.
Tony, do you always rig Gulp swimming mullet that way? I always rig them “upside down” with the swimming tail facing down instead of up. This keeps the tail from getting snagged on the hook.
I pretty much rig them right side up all the time. I do get an occasional snag every now and then but not too big of a deal.
