Wire Techniques

Catching striped bass on wire-line rigs requires a lot of technique. First, you must pay out the right amount of Monel wire line attached to the right-size jig for the water depth. Next, you must impart a pronounced action to the jig to make its skirt flare up as it rises and falls with each sweep of the rod, eliciting strikes. Joe Mahler / www.markerjockey.com
