Hogy drop shot rigs are used to target fish holding in deeper water (typically with soft plastic baits) where the hook is tied or crimped directly (in-line) above a sinker. Use the rig to pin-point targeting of deep-water fish on structure. Holding baits in front of finicky fish. Take advantage of a soft-plastic bait uninhibited by a jig head and still fish in deep water.

Hogy Barbarian Jig 10/0 and Slappy 13" Blamber Eels
I purchased 2 six packs of the Slappy eels and the barbarian hooks for striper fishing at Block Island. These things are amazing. Not only do they catch fish but they tend to only catch the big ones. We have had multiple trips with over 40 fish and many well over 50#. We have used a wide variety of similar soft plastics but nothing out fishes the Blamber. We use a slightly different method to the vertical jigging. We cast out, let it hit the bottom then a VERY slow retrieve with quick twitches. They are pretty durable. We often get 3-4 big fish before they get torn up. In a pinch i have super glued repaired them but the new ones work best. I just re-ordered......
As a filler to get shipping will no dought work for my many soft baits I really wanted the 10/0 model you didnt have thanks for all the goodies!! Al
