How-To: Casting and Jigging Sand Eel Lures for Striped Bass

Watch Hogy’s Capt. Mike Hogan fish with top guide Sean Ruge of Riptide Charters where they vertical jig and top water cast for large striped bass off Provincetown on Cape Cod. Fishing the area know as the Race, this video shows textbook examples on how to target deep water large fish at slack tide and also surface fish once the tide starts rolling. The fish were highly finicky so they went to the highly imitative Hogy sand eels rigged on diamond jigs and swim bait hooks to get the job done.
