EGGIN’ IT

Sport Fishing - - STICKBAIT SECRETS -

Some days Capt. Steve Te­jera finds tar­pon in deeper bays or basins and rivers rolling only spo­rad­i­cally and not re­cep­tive to lures that fish close to the sur­face. He be­lieves these fish are al­most hi­ber­nat­ing on the bot­tom but can be fooled to eat with a lit­tle trick he learned one day by adding a small ¼-ounce egg weight above the lure. Plac­ing an egg sinker on the leader so it slides like a knocker rig helps get the lure down faster and cre­ates a click­ing sound when the weight hits the eye of the lure.
