Jack STRIKES Herring Grub Lure!

Postby Scuba Chris » Thu May 11, 2023 1:52 am

It was COLD & the first day in weeks that the sun came out. So i decided to stay and freeze my butt off wading out to the drop-off. After freezing in the water i went back to shore & bingo! A small hit, but a hit that held. My drag was to tight from my previous hit so i was lucky the hook didn't tear out. I did go out at night a week ago & caught a 5gal bucket full of fish, but my new headlamp red light wasn't strong enough to video so decided not to use that night's footage as the quality was very poor.

I tried using a sickle bait-holder hook but threading the hook through 1/4 of the 4in grub caused the grub to run straight (though the fish were hitting it). After texting My Yamamoto on what was going on he suggested hooking the front tip only. Bingo! The lure started zig-zagging and within minutes got a solid hook-up on a young Bluefin Trevally "Omilu". After taking a quick pic i released it back.
