Went out for Sea bass good day 20 keepers and 3 keeper fluke(anchored)..using a sea bass rig typical hi-lo two dropper loops weight on bottom rig.  I was wondering is there a rig that would have been more advantageous to both fluke and sea bass, while anchored? The fluke where agressive so I wonder how many I missed.



 



Thanks for input

A high low sea bass rig is excellent for fluke while anchored :th: Fluke aren't shy - and having the hook off the bottom a little bit makes the bait more visible - and when they hit it, they practically hook themselves :) The only change I'd make might be using a little bigger hook than a standard sea bass rig, something like a 3/0 or 4/0...other than that, you'll catch plenty of fluke at anchor with a high low rig.

Show someone how to catch striped bass and they'll be ready to fish anywhere.
Show someone where to go striped bass fishing and you'll have a desperate report chaser with loose lips.
We love our stripers - please don't take more than yah need.
