Fluke Rigs – Silver Ball Rigs

How to Find and Catch Weakfish Target the elusive northeastern tide runner this spring. Kirk Fay posted Apr 27th, at 3: The delicate-mouthed gamer is tough to land even after the hookup. Kramer loves his Mackinaw peaches as much as some diehards, like me, love targeting weakfish in spring. When fishing for weakfish, keep in mind that their finesse outweighs fight. Weakfish get their name because of their paper-thin mouths. In fact, they have an obvious resemblance to their Southern speckled trout cousin, which also have a tendency to come unhooked easily. Leave the booming hook-sets at home when testing your wits against these tricky game fish.

Jump to; Lures Bait and tackle To fish for the most popular game fish species in the Indian River Lagoon, a good quality basic spinning outfit for lb test line will work just fine. My favorite is a seven foot medium action rod with a spinning reel holding about yards of line. I use a Shakespeare Ugly Stik Intracoastal graphite spinning rod, 7 foot, medium action, and rated for 6 to 12 lb test line.

I have always been a fan of Ugly Stiks because even though the rod’s action is listed as “medium”, the tip has a lighter action for more sensitivity when casting lightweight lures such as un-weighted soft plastic lures or freelined live shrimp. For a reel, any good quality spinning reel capable of holding about yards of whatever LB test of line you wish to use will work just fine.

It is rated for 8 to 12 LB test and will hold about yards of 10 LB test mono.

Small bucktails, Deadly Dick spoons, soft-plastic swim shads, diamond jigs, epoxy jigs, fluke-style plastics, Z-Man swimbaits and Berkley Gulp! are all lures that regularly catch weakfish.

Hookup Lures Inshore Bucktail Jigs Hookup Lures manufactures hand-tied Bucktails that have long been recognized for their superior quality, strength and durability. The Inshore series of the Hookup Lures Bucktail Jigs are constructed around super sharp VMC stainless steel hooks and hand tied with precision for both an appealing appearance and equally quality performance. Many anglers use the Inshore series for targeting stripers and largemouth bass in freshwater and redfish, flounder and cobia in saltwater.

The cobra style head allows the jig to make its way through the water running true as it sinks or is retrieved by the angler. The hair skirts provide perhaps the most accurate imitation of baitfish when compared to other materials such as silicone or rubber. Excellent scent holding capabilities – add a small single tail grub for the perfect striper bait.

Fluke Rigs – Silver Ball Rigs

Why did you switch? Answer SPRO bucktails were really the best bucktails available when we first started using them. In fact, we used them well before they ever came aboard to support the show. The finish is excellent, the hooks Gamakatsu were super sharp, and eventually they even made them large enough to be effective for deep water fluke.

We caught loads of fish on these bucktails, but we always had a few nagging issues.

Our recommended light tackle weakfish outfit includes a spinning rod and reel combo suitable for 20lb fused line. The optimal rod is 6’6″ to 7′ feet long with a fast to extra-fast action and capable of handling lure weights up to 1 ounce.
