Q&A: Top Hogy Lures for Fishing Chesapeake Bay

Posted by Hogy Lures Staff on


I’ve seen some of your lures on Youtube and I like what I saw. I fish the Upper Chesapeake bay starting in April for stripers and will fish it summer and fall. What would you recommend from you line and technique to use? I’ve got the 10 ” floating original bone color. Which jig head should I use? And I also have the 7″ white — which head should I use?

Thanks in advance,




Thanks so much for reaching out to us. We appreciate your business very much.

One of our top Pro Staff – Tyler Nonn is a guide in the area. I don’t want to get you too side tracked, but take a quick look at this article about using our lures in your waters during the spring bite.


That being said, these are the hooks you’ll need.

10inch Floating: 10/0 Unweighted Barbarian Swim Bait Hook

Which 7″ bait do you have? Original Series or Paddle Tail?

If you’d like a jig head, both can be fished on the 6/0 Barbarian Jig Heads
