    I agree, Ryan. As soon as I saw them at Bay Country Crabbing Supply and Tackle, I knew I wanted to try them out. I am glad I did!

    I am also trying to find a local source for Hogy Swimming Tins. They are along the same line and the videos I've seen show that they add great action to soft plastics.

    There certainly is nothing wrong with 4" paddletails, as they will catch bigger fish, but I agree with this; If you want to target bigger bass, bigger baits are the way to go sometimes. You just have to trade off quantity for quality most of the time however.

    Great report and I'm glad to see the effort paid off for you. Paddling into whitecaps and wind is no easy chore - I know.

    I like that. A couple of the local shops over our way carry some 10" Hogys, but I don't think they sell the standard Hogy heads, not the tins? I'll have to look again next time I stop in. I think your tin idea is good. Looks like it would glide if it hits bottom instead of digging along. I might have to look into a couple of those. Thanks for sharing!

    Bruce, congrats on your successful trip. I enjoyed ever part of your detailed report. You are a beast!

    I've been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance to even think about paddling. I have only been pier fishing here and there. With warm weather comes a ton of business for me, which is a good thing. I will be back out, once work slows. If I can give half the report you gave, I'll be a happy man! 🍻🍻

    Haha! I'm happy to report when I can and hope to, soon. I'm thankful that you and the other Snaggedline members are catching so I can vicariously live through you guys!

    Looking forward to seeing you out there too! ...hopefully sooner than later.

    As far as I knew, I was the only one that had a Kodiak Jig! I'd never seen anyone else use them. You should fit it with a Striper Sniper Snake Worm. Those things are worth a million bucks in the water. Dip the tip of the tail in a little contrasting dye and check out the action!
