    Lightweight and full of splashing action, the Hogy Splash Bird Bar has quickly become one of the most popular light tackle spreader bars for tuna trolling. Imitative UV infused squid bodies offer irresistible action paired with our stainless spring steel bars. Designed for offshore trolling at four to twelve-knot speeds, these lightweight spreader bars can be trolled on much lighter tackle than traditional titanium rigs. A staff favorite for targeting school Bluefin and Yellowfin tuna along the Northeast Coast and Canyons.

    Directional Bird Trolling Diagram

    How To: This 5 rod spread features (4) 18inch Squid Pocket Splash Bars. Generally, we mix up colors to see what fish are responding to on a given day. 

    Recommended colors: Amber Squid, Olive Sand Eel, Green Mack, Rainbow. 
    They are fished from the rod holders first and second set of rod holders. Stagger the birds in a "W" Pattern, starting at 75' behind the boat. Place the second bar about 50' further back. 

    Optional Recommendation: When possible, run one or two 6oz Harness Jigs just off the stern using flat line clips. These can be run 30' - 60' off the transom. 

    Tips: This spread can be trolled from 4.5knts - 8.5knts depending on sea state. Generally, the smoother conditions are, the faster we troll. Minor spacing adjustments to bird placement may be needed to adjust for individual boat wakes and sea conditions.

    Directional Squid Bird Bar

    I like to fish the bird bar way, way back for a variety of reasons. The bird function of the bar allows the bar to swim well without outriggers, which is important when fished further back. The commotion can add attraction because it is far away from the boat's wake, also an attraction. The bird bar will float, so if you back off, you can leave the further back bar out while you fish the fish and avoid tangles. You can see where the bird is. It is so far back, it may be difficult for other boats to know where your lure is, including you!

      Great quality and along with the side planers this product worked great. We hit Dorados right from the start. Did not try on Tuna yet.

      Trolling day

      Works amazing for not having outrigger system. You won’t be disappointed. I was out trolling for tuna but the bass and blue fish were all over this rig. I did have a bluefin hit this rig and take about 80 yards of line and shook the hook about 30 feet from the boat.

      Small boat tuna

      These bird bars are exactly what is needed for chasing tuna with a small boat. They float and are directional so, in my case with no outriggers, I can fish 4 rods easily. Port and starboard directional birds, a straight bar way back and one harness jig in close. Perfect!

      Couldn’t keep the fish off of this thing…stayed upright perfectly the entire time…after getting beaten up for 4 straight days…she still held together like she was fresh out the box. All good.

      Good Quality Tool

      It's a little too cold to try them out, but I can't wait to put them in the water. They look like there going to work as advertised.

      Thanks for the quality.
