1. So I'll be trying to get me some jack on my days off and was wondering what's the best way to hook them for bait. Can I cut them in chunks or does it have ...more to be whole? Never used it before but I know it's and awesome bait. Same with bonita

      I use a long 15" flat head that I filed down and made cut behind it to grab the drops to pull back @j_reyes

      I was gonna use a screwdrived
      They're pretty easy to make @j_reyes

      @andydinh where you get your rigging needles from?
    10. andydinh 0
      Any time ur rigging big baits like big rays Sheeps and jacks u wanna get a rigging needle so ur drops are smooth and won't be messy tearing up ur bait and having ...more loose hooks when using j hooks

      Thanks @bassinboy01 but I just wing it! Lol I consult FS for rigging techniques and so far have no big greys to show for miles and miles of paddling out drops
      Since they're switching me sections here at work they're cutting me loose Saturday so I should be off sat afternoon and Sunday and might hit up bolivar if ...more I don't hit it during the week @fishingmatt
    13. fishingmatt 0
      I may hit bolivar again this weekend if weather cooperates
      Lot better fishing then up here in Galveston @mredus8

      As for Bonita I put them inside panty hose so the crabs don't tear them up.
    23. mredus8 0
      With any bait it's the same. It's about hook placement and how big of a bait you like to run. I will run a 40 plus inch jack hole. You can cut them in half ...more to.

      Gotcha gotcha. Good luck with it!
      Sweet deal! Thank you @SwampMafia
      On. Just wanted to try something new @bassinboy01 @robz713
      I mean I've used several live and dead bait just never tried jack. Wasn't sure if there was a good or bad way to hook them. I have no problem doing that ...more with whiting, mullet, ray, lady, sheeps, and so
    30. Swamp Mafia 0
      It depends on the size of the jack and the Sharks your after. If it's a large jack I would cut it into bite size chunks for the size shark you are after. Smaller ...more jacks can be used whole, tail removed.
    31. Jacob Breaux 0
      the fish. Cut: with a circle hooked at the top of the chunk.

      Sweet that sounds good some guy at the dike Friday stopped by to take a whiting from my said they where gettin bit on em good luck bud
    33. Jacob Breaux 0
      But to try and answer the question, I've heard of people using smaller jacks and bobo's whole, hooked with a circle through the head, or thread J's so ...more they come out behind the dorsals out the side of

      @robz713 Ha no he wouldn't! I'm just getting started with this whole chark thing
      I know I've used big whiting and I put them live and make small cuts to let them bleed out slowly. @robz713
    40. robz713 0
      @bassinboy01 would know how to hook em
    41. robz713 0
      I think a whole fish wouldn't attract as much but I'm no shark expert
    42. robz713 0
      I'd go whole or half I've had great luck with dead bait by using the head half that was shad but Maybe use 3/4 that way it's still a big chunk but still ...more letting juices and blood seep out
