You try to use that thing and Matty will leave you at the dock    :D

 

Doo Dads . ..

How are rigs like these any worse than chicken rigs?  Seems like when I catch fluke on bucktail and teaser and chicken rigs the other teaser/bucktail that’s not in the fish’s mouth is way more treacherous and can hook someone way easier. Also don’t some boats just gaff the fish?  Never been yet so maybe I am mistaken. Looking for any tips.

Frigging long ride.

Try driving to Hyannis in the summer.  Long boat ride vs. long car ride - pick your poison.

Sorry to bring this chain back 6 months later but just booked a 2 day Helen H trip.......

 

For the chicken rig/hi-lo any advantage/disadvantage to using two 1/4-3/8 bucktails/jigs vs two plain hooks with a skirt?

 

Would the strong current cause a rig with the two 1/4-3/8 jigs to tangle more vs two skirted hooks?

 

Best of luck out there and thank you in advance!

I never have a problem tangling but that just might be my distance that I put between my teasers or hooks. Put them in the water and look at the action of the 2, I guess?? See if theres a difference. But I catch on both.

 

Good work on booking the trip. I have a 2 day Nantucket charter on their other boat, The Angler in June, and a backup weather trip on the Helen H for 2 days in July. :)
