DrEvil,

That actually came out hilarious. Nothing to laugh at but your "delivery" really gave me a chuckle, especially the part about the Ling having a one way trip. If its a big bergal it too will have a one way trip.

I hear preliminary news is that NY closed the SeaBass with the exception of September and June, is Jersey following suit ?

The seabass regs are coastwide - which means that all states in the fishery have the same regs.

I'm thinking of putting new hooks and split rings on some (ok all) my jigs this winter - I had a few rings start to deform on some of my cod jigs this year, and I suspect some of my hooks aren't as sharp as they should be.
(plus I want to have some extra pre-rigged squids ready for swapping out as needed)

Any preferences ? is it worth spending the extra for some of the Owner ST-66 trebles (about $9 for 5) vs the Mustad #3561ED (25 for $14) or the VMC 9626PSC (also about $14 for 25) ?

I'm mostly using the 99n or similar jigs, and fishing GOM or stellwagen bank.

Thanks,

Red

Red, before you buy anything, let me post a couple of pics up on some of the split rings we use, along with the treble hooks we put on jigs. I wanted to make this a comparison type article and now this is going to be on the TO-DO next week.

90% of the time, you will see Mustads. Size relative to the jig and teaser is more of a concern IMHO. A small jig with a pink teaser for giving you a shot at haddock for instance.

I'm looking forward to Steve's responce here. I'm probably one of the least expereinced posteres here but I do like those sticky sharp hooks. I also use slightly oversized split rings for extra security. Cod have big mouths but as it was mentioned haddock do not. When I'm targeting haddock there are a couple smaller (more narrow) shiney jigs I use w/ a lighter set up (lighter line too for better dept penatration) that they seem to like & I use smaller trebles with these w/ pink, white or ranibow teasers. Jigging motion is also different, twitched much closer to the bottom.
Just my perspective.
Like I said, Steve will post a more accurate and specific info.
