Question: I’m trying Hogy lures for the first time. They are much larger than the soft baits that I use for srtiped bass. What’s my best rigging option for the 10″ Original? What speed retrieve?
Answer: We always say, the bigger the bait, the faster you fish it. You are hoping to draw that reaction striker. The bigger baits call bass in from a wide area. Be sure to make a few casts in each area. Most popular bass hook is the 10/0 unweighted swim-bait Hook. The keeper on the swim-bait hook will hang on to the larger bait better than an offset worm hook.
Question: What’s your favorite color for big baits for big bass?
Answer: Bubble Gum and Bone in high vis situations. Black and amber on overcast days.
