Inshore System Playbook (Printed Copy Included):
The Hogy System is based on how a highly booked career charter captain would approach fishing. That means each of our products must be:
- Durable: For heavy repeated use.
- Trophy Grade: Pro-Rigged out of the package.
- Task-Oriented: Each lure does its job extremely well
This collection offers a sampling of our most iconic product lines representing who we are as a tackle company and why we offer them. There is not a single inshore fishery on earth where you would find yourself empty-handed with this collection.
I’m honored that you have chosen Hogy. We fish in the same spots as you do and we deeply believe you’ll love these products as much as we do. Our support behind the Hogy System doesn’t stop with videos and information in this kit. We’re always here to answer any fishing questions you have. See you out there!
Capt. Mike's Inshore System Walk Through
INTRODUCTION TO HOGY: Whether it’s casting, jigging or trolling for saltwater gamefish, each lure in our lineup has a specific job to be done. If we can’t easily argue the “why” for any of our specific products, we simply won’t produce it.
3:27 Rigging: We always carry a wide selection of rigging options to complement our Inshore System. For unrigged softbaits, we carry a variety of swimbait hooks, jig heads, and soft circle hooks. For our favorite jigs and plugs, we carry an assortment of replacement inline single hooks, trebles, and split rings along with the necessary tools to simplify the rigging. https://bit.ly/39TFLBW
6:40 Softbaits: Come in many shapes and sizes, but they can really be broken down into two styles: Action Tails and Eel Tails. Softbaits come “unrigged” or “pre-rigged” at the factory. Unrigged softbaits are customizable, can be rigged seedless, and often have more movement in the water than pre-rigged baits. https://bit.ly/3MXTYfP
10:36 Plugs: These are an essential component of any saltwater tackle arsenal. Plugs have action “built-in" making them easy to fish and have actions not found with jigs and soft plastics. They come in a wide variety of sizes from teeny to quite large. In our opinion, plugs make the most sense with imitating large bait. Plugs are light relative to their size, so extra small plugs are difficult to cast on saltwater gear. As casting there they are most often associated with top or sub-surface swimming actions. Plugs can be fished in open water and around structures. https://bit.ly/3LATOcA
16:00 Jigs: Most jigs can be cast or jigged. Many anglers fish casting jigs with trebles and vertical jigs with single or “assist style hooks” where a single hook swings freely from the lure. Lure speed is an important factor to be aware of with jigs, your choice to fish fast (cover range of depths, draw reaction strike) or slow (imitative, sluggish fish, one important depth) will dictate which profile to use. Color is about either “attraction” or “matching the hatch.” https://bit.ly/3PANW6m
