Straight dogfish on the jigs, saw a few boats hooking up on the troll and switched to the troll one bass on the spoon and a dogfish on the spoon?

Gave up on spoons and put out 2 mojos one white, one chartreuse. Had 6 fish 28-32 inches in about 2 hours (between 40-60ft of water). Color didnt seem to matter but chartreuse might have gotten some more love.

Seems the jigging bite has slowed and theyre on bigger baits. Saw tons of herring and even caught one on a teaser.

Headed west on the way in and found the schoolie bite going off at AB jetty. Great way to finish the day. Had a couple of friends on the boat, great to show them a fine day of bass fishing.

Those mojos sure seem to work good . Best part is you don't have to pull wire.

Great job, congratulations!
I wonder what is the weight of the mojos, I have 2, 8 ounces each, is this good enough or they should be heavier, talking about 80# braid main line and also how much line should i release?
Thank you for the post and best if luck!

In the ocean you need something heavier. I use 24 oz in 50ft let straight down then put in gear let out about 100ft you should be fine. In thinker water you could get away with lighter . The ones you have either put on wire or troll in bay no more than 20 ft they are to light and won’t stay down. Pull them slow 3mph and good luck.
I also run them in on three way in tandem. Use one 24 and then you can put a lighter one on 6-8 lleader beaver one on 2 foot leader. This will get the lighter ones down also. In tandem I usually run same color but prob doesn’t matter . Good luck

I was using a 16oz and a 20oz mojo (in 45-60ft of water). I wouldn't use anything lighter. They both got down fine. I was actually using 40 or 50# braid. At trolling speed (about 3 mph) I let out the mojo until I feel it hit the bottom, I wait 5-10 seconds and let it out until it hits bottom again and your in the strike zone. Keep it simple, don't have to be concerned about how much line is out or anything. I wouldn't run them on wire either. Occasionally redrop it or give it a jig and you're set.

Mo jo

All good advice, from my perspective. I like the drop find bottom drop again then possible re drop while under slow forward speed.

Not a "Troller" myself. Wire is no fun, but puts meat in the freezer.

Jigs still producing just a tough bite.

Hearing are here so live bait or blue jigs.
