still having hard time envisioning how that will attach and fly ... if I hang the bend of the hook on that nail/screw, won't the hook flip due to the tail end hanging?  any pics to how how you guys do this? ... Thanks!

I have not tried with large sluggos myself as of yet, but I have had success with smaller soft plastics such as gulp 4" and 5" curly tails, and of course with small bucktails and various flies.

Like this.  If you don’t have enough space just back the screw out to gain more room.

I use casting bubbles a lot.

Beauty with those is that you can change their weight on every cast if you want to.

Very popular method where I'm from. Every tackle shop has a bin full. Only problem is durability around rocks and pilings.

I pick up this method in Southern California.

First time I have seen this was in Avalon pier, Catalina Island.

Yes, durability around the rocks may be a problem but those are like $.50 each.

I buy them in bulks of 12 and they last me few years.

They got more damage in my car than on the rocks.

Most of my damage comes from smacking the pier piling and yes they are so cheap which is great.

What jig/fly is that?  

Does your bubble slide down to it or do you peg it?

Those are filled with water.

Pin slides out, you fill with water much as you want, close pin and cast.

If its to light, add more water, if its to heavy get some water out.

I use red bit to keep the around 30" distance from fly , since pin is hollow and slides up/down.

That particular fly is made by Tim the Teaser; very popular teaser maker on Long Island.

Lately I can only get bit on weightless 9" sluggos. Will definitely be trying this. I wonder if they work so well because the hook is hard to see rather than a couple of giant trebles. How do you tie the egg on?

With a clip or tie directly to running line.
