|1 oz and 2 oz casting eggs, a technique developed long ago by the pioneers of Striped Bass fishing. |
Used as a floating weight to cast with spinning gear for fishing around rocks etc, tie the unweighted side to your line,
then you tie a short length of mono with a fly teaser/deceiver fly to the other weighted side,
the egg will float and have a "roly poly" action on top which attracts fish, then they see your fly etc and hit it!
I will allow you to fish areas you normally can't due to excessive rocks etc. JUST the places that Striped Bass and most gamefish like to hang out :)
The eggs are very aerodynamic and cast very well! We've had these used worldwide on many different kinds of fish.
Absolutely deadly technique!
Ideally the best way to rig this is with a 4-5' leader of 30-60lb fluoro, and use the nail to hang the hook on the egg.
Now rigged with minimum 350lb Stainless Kroc swivels!
These casting eggs will work with many small items such as Redgills, flies, small sluggos/similar rubber baits rigged unweighted,
I originally found this in a book at the Library and saw it as a neat idea, we tried it and it worked sweet! Over the last 10 years we have sold thousands of these eggs.
Rule of thumb I use on size with these is the length of your fishing rod.
"I bought a couple of the casting eggs from you and they work great!
Sorry for the ruined picture, people keep stealing my pictures and remove the copyright.
Here's a closeup of how this is rigged, the fly is a Ron's stripercandy teaser hook.
"Love your plugs! I have a couple of your swimmers and your casting egg, they rock."
"Met you at the Somerset show. Those Eggs work!"
"I have to tell you that egg rigged with a slug-go is my go to setup lately. I have caught so many fish with it!"
|Here's a recent article in the East Hampton Star newspaper on how to use these! |
