Well the wait has been long for the guys and gals waiting for the temps to drop and the Stripers to school up.
Thanks for all the feedback on the GLOW JIGS!! We knew that was going to be a hot lure the first time we saw it. It is still doing a number on the Stripers. Guys have also taken fish on the larger 6 oz rigged on an umbrella rig.
Seems it is finally (actually a little early this year) time to break out the larger rigs and start trolling. Fish are in the early stages of the fall pattern. Some nice reports have been coming in with fish over 40" taken on larger rigs trolling the deeper water. Although there are still fish in the skinny water to be taken on 5" Striper Assasins. ....with the water temps dipping into the mid to low 50's we will see a larger number of big fish being taken in the deeper water.
Unlike the spring these fish will be on the channel edges and deeper...meaning sinkers up to 24oz. Umbrella rigs and tandem bucktails will be the hot lures in the ole standby colors of chartruese and white. Pink 6" shad teasers also played a huge role in the spring so we will be pulling those as well. We are also talking to a supplier about an 11" Twister Tail which should be available soon!!
We have added a few new products for the offshore guys. We now have 5" tuna Birds, 7" and 9" skirted Tuna Bird teasers. 8" shell squid and a new ALUMINUM TUNA PLUG WITH RED EYES!!! You can see these in "OFFSHORE LURES"
Also check out the Umbrella rig clips. These clips are a fast and easy way to change out inline sinkers and umbrella rigs. there is a limited supply so get yours while supplies last.
On a safety note. make sure you have on your PFD's and a float plan. tell someone where you will be and what time you are expected to return. Make sure your VHFis up to par and working properly. Lets make this fall a safe one
