Capt. Mike Hogan & Capt. Rob Lowell of Cape Cod Offshore Charters spends the morning targeting Buzzards Bay Seabass in bumpy conditions. In this video, we introduce the new Jig-Biki Teaser rig paired with the Hogy Flutter Pitch Jig.
Our ready-made rig with premium mono featuring two of the deadliest teasers known to fish! The “sabiki” version is a scaled-up version of the deadly bait rig, matching the teaser assist hooks on our larger jigs. The tube version, used in our Diesel Mack Rigs, presents some chafe resistance and a larger profile in the water. Either rig can be fish as a teaser rig -or- as a bait rig. The beauty of the rig is that if your bait gets stolen, you're still in the game with the teaser which is perhaps 85% as effective “naked”.
Strategy: Sea bass love wrecks; any wreck you see on your chart would be a good place to start. Otherwise, similarly to scup, any bottom structure such as rocks, live bottom, drop offs, holes and ledges are also tell-tale, fishing hot spots when targeting sea bass.
Tactical Jig Hogy Squinnow Jig: (Shallow) In 25’ or less I tend to favor the slow rounded shape of the Hogy Squinnow jig. Not only is the jig less prone to snags, but the lure also has a fluttery action with slow short jigging motions. If the current gets too strong, the smaller more compact Heavy Minnow jig will hold bottom better.
Tactical Jig Flutter Pitch Jig: Hogy Flutter Pitch Jig (Deep) 30’ Plus or when targeting large sea pass. The teaser assist on this jig will perfectly match the
teasers on the Hogy Jig Biki Rig. Fish the flutter Pitch with long slow sweeps of the rod for sea bass.
