Hookup Bait White Sea Bass (WSB) Special Jigs have the same profile, action, and fish catching power as the Original Hookup Baits. Just with a bigger and stronger hook to make hooking and landing the giant White Seabass (the Hookup baits are know to catch) a whole lot easier.
There are many ways to fish the hookup bait but casting it out and letting it fall on a tight line will pendulum it down in an arc. This can be very effective since it allows the bait to swim as it falls. This is effective when fish are suspended in the column and not on the top or bottom.
If fish are on the bottom, we like to let it sink to the bottom and pop it off the bottom and then allowing it to sink back down. Continue this retrieve all the way back to the boat or shore.
If they are in the upper part of the column, cast and start retrieving soon after the lure hits the surface. Most of the time a slow and steady retrieve works best but you can also burn it on the surface for very active surface feeding fish.
Tie a Hookup Bait on and see what method works best for you. The bottom line is these baits get bit on salt and fresh water fish.
