Getting jigs ready for 2014 season.

Winter provides some time to get this big fish catcher jig perfected. When this buck-tail jig is fished under the right circumstances in combination with the right "sweetener" it has proven to be deadly for the larger predators that lurk around Masonboro Inlet. These are a few of the bigger fish fooled in 2013 by this combination lure. Fifty plus inches black drum, forty inch plus red drum, fifteen pound blue fish and a five pound plus flounder.
