Sand eels are back so riggies are hot again cwm12.gif


You need to match the head to the current and the size of the eel so you can swim it just off the bottom at a slow to moderate speed.

Not for nuttin', but that's not a "rigged eel", not even by a stretch - it's a soft stick bait, a large Sluggo like stick bait - a "rigged eel" is a real or rubber eel rigged on a tin (sometimes lead) head or "wobble plate" that imparts an eel like wiggle to the rubber or real eel on the back smile.gif



A sluggo or hogy is not a rigged eel, they are soft stick baits - just trying to clarify HappyWave.gif



mfm22 - nobody sells pre-rigged real eels that I know of - the cost and time of rigging reel eels and their short shelf life make it very prohibitive. You can buy rigged rubber eels here in the online store - Ultimus heads and Ultimus eels, rigged by me. Not sure how much longer they are gonna be available, it's too time consuming and cost prohibitive, even to rig rubbers ones for retail redface.gif




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.
