It’s officially 2022 here at Hogy HQ!!! We filmed this haddock video a couple weeks ago, and man did it feel good...
We were "twitch jigging” in attempt to avoid snagging “by-catch” cod, which sometimes happens on “fast style” jigging where the jig spans a greater area in the water column with sharp hooks and soft cod bodies. Capt. Rob and I each had the same rigs, the 5/0 Crystal Jig-Biki rig paired with the 6.5oz Pink Sand Eel jig. His rig was tipped with sea clam, mine was not! I can’t say I out-fished Capt. Rob but I certainly did as well as he did. AND I made less mess! (No foul hooked fish either!)
