Default Striker Offshore Tackle Customer Photos-UPDATED 5-19-17

Thanks to all the recreational fisherman and charter captains that submitted photos the last few weeks. We know that when fish are hitting the deck its not always easy or practical to stop and take pictures.

A special thanks to all the charter captains who have given us a chance to provide quality tackle and for the advice given in modifying our lures to ensure we offer the best quality, that above all catch fish.

Striker Offshore Tackle and Supplies continues to grow rapidly and our customer base continues to increase weekly. Just in the last few days new baits are available including Pink/silver diving lures, assist hooks, trolling bullet skirts and aluminum pliers with belt case. In a few days we will have the new 100 gram flat falls that everybody has been asking about. To view or purchase any of our products please visit www.strikertackle.com
Tight Lines,

R.M.

Another returning customer from Houma, Mr. Cody. He is actually just starting out with the offshore fishing. Not a bad start.

I think I might swap to a treble hook on my flat falls. One thing that I have noticed, is that the hooks sometimes wrap around the main line. I am rigging them the correct way also.

It happens on occasion to us too. Depending on the how strong the current is running seems to be the biggest factor. I will say talking with some of the charter captains, if you just reel up the jig once you've dropped it instead of popping the bait it greatly eliminates that issues. The lure still makes a swimming motion when it is just reeled in. We are juggling the idea of offering the flat falls with treble hooks, can't make any promises. Let us now how it works out for you.

Cool. Thanks for the input.
The jigs are awesome.
I just want to make sure I am not doing something wrong.

I haven't put treble hooks on all of my flat falls. When I'm fishing your flat falls with the assist hooks I reel them up with a "reverse" vertical jig style of retrieve. This is what works the best for me and generates bites on the retrieve.

1. With your jig on bottom or as deep as you want it fall point the rod tip down and start reeling in and lifting rod tip up high.
2. When rod tip is pointing up stop reeling and lower the rod tip quickly.
3. Let the jig do its flat fall motion with the slack you generated by dropping the rod tip and watch your line for the bite.
4. If you didn't have to set the hook repeat from step 1 and continue until ....

Can a 3' leader with a snap swivel to connect to the main line (braid) be used? I'm using 40lb braid and want to be able to change things out quickly.

Default Leader

Yes, you can definitely put a leader with a swivel. We usually rig a few jigs that will be dropped down for AJ's with heavy mono and a bar swivel. For tuna we leave a few poles rigged with floro straight to the jig.

The swivel rig doesn't mater for Aj's, snapper and other similar fish.
