Is live bait the only way to catch Aj's or will frozen pogies work too as they do for snapper?
You can catch snapper, AJ, grouper, tuna and many other species of fish on vertical jigs. Sometimes even 2 fish on one jig. See attached pics below of a few fish caught with Anteater Jigs. I see that you are located in New Orleans. If you are fishing the rigs you will need at least a 200g jig. The general rule of thumb is 100g of weight for every 100ft of depth. Here in LA you will need to be in approx 250 feet or deeper to land some nice sized AJ's. The jig that is mostly used by myself and the locals are the 250g jigs. See attached pics. My competitors jigs are too small to fish with at the rigs and are also more expensive. You can PM or e-mail([email protected]
) me with any other questions. Feel free to check out my website, www.AnteaterJigs.com (www.AnteaterJigs.com) to see all my products. I can also meet up with you around the New Orleans area if you would like to save on shipping. Good luck next time out on the water
Vertical jigs work like a charm on AJs
this one fell victim to the 5.3oz green vertical jigs I have in stock but then it fell victim to a shark,, the sharks were hungry that day im sad to say
