Question and Answer With Hogy Pro Staff
Question: What rig do you recommend for Halibut in Alaska?
Answer: Without a doubt the vibrations of big soft baits are top halibut producers. That’s why they are so popular. Hogy has a couple of lures I use for Halibut:
Deep Northern Water:
- Hogy Flounder: Halibut eat their young. 8” Size soft bait flounders are perfect for this application.
- Big Big Jig: This long shank 16oz jig will get you down fast.
- HD Drop Shot Rig: This rig is spec’ed for heavy fishing. 130 lb test, chafe gear, heavy rings etc. Drop Shot Rigs work great for drift fishing.
Question: What about California Halibut?
Answer: We get great feed back from customers using the 7inch or 10inch Original on California Halibut. A smaller presentation would be 6inch Skinny or 7inch Original behind a flasher for slow trolling halibut.
