Late Afternoon Rock bite on the barbless 3/8 oz. Barefoot Jig, fishing around a large school of Shad.
Easy catch and release (50+ fish afternoon) with barbless hooks on the Barefoot Jig.
Bitter cold temps, but red hot striper bite! Some friends from St. Louis and some from NC enjoy an epic bite. 20 degrees at daylight, jigging for striper (rockfish) on the NC/VA offshore line using the 3 oz. Barefoot Jig with soft plastic (Mold Craft) squid’
Catching Hybrids almost every cast for hours. Kept 15, but released at least that many after work. This was back in the day when I first made the black nickel hook "Barefoot Jig" and hand-painted some for me and my friends.
Catching some speckled trout for dinner(s) on a creek off the ICW on the jig with soft plastic shrimp under a cork.
Pre-dawn rockfish before work begins. Barefoot Jigs ROCK! Under the cork and without the cork.
Barbless hooks on the jig make the release effortless!!! DO NOT Touch The Fish!!! Touch ONLY The Jig.
Behind the Hdyro Electric Dam - Striped Bass fishing and getting the bites behind the dam with my new friend “OJ”.

Bass Fishing with 3/0 Circle Hook Chin Weights Baited with Gulp
Relaxing drift down a river fishing the (weedless) 7/0 Circle Hook Chin Weight under the sliding cork for catfish using butterflied bream (bluegill).
The 7/0 Circle Hook Chin Weight (rigged weedless) fished under a sliding cork with fresh shad is an effective tool for blue cats.
Our Chin Weights ROCK: Lock and Dam Catfish on the 7/0 Circle Hook Chin Weight.
Barefoot Circle Hook Chin Weights are perfectly weighted for Dolphins, but that's not all! Several other species include marlin, drums, snook, striper, and grouper.
Barefoot's "J" Hook Chin Weight stands out because it is easy to rig with ballyhoo or squid bait, and when baited with ballyhoo, the J Hook Chin Weight swims horizontally like it's alive. Captain Tim Barefoot and his crew catch a 76-pound Wahoo with a chin-weight.
Weather and work were not working together… It has been two months since we’ve been offshore. Looking for Gags and Scamps (along with all the other bottom fish) Nice grade of fish!!!
Grouper Fishing with John, Barry, and Garrett: End of August. Hot as heck, but it's just a matter of finding the bait and feeding them what they want.
The target species for this 1st trip was African Pompano for the new 4oz. Barefoot Squid Jig, but we caught quite a few species. Blackfin on the troll, casting and jigging 75-feet deep, to gag grouper, dolphin, barracuda, amberjack, and of course, African pompano. Great way to start with the latest, and maybe the best barefoot jig yet. No wahoo or yellowfin on this trip, but stay tuned....
Troll, jig or pop, this one does it all! Add a stinger hook and a frozen (or live) cigar, sardine or greenie, and you have a depth charge getting ready to go off when slow trolled
This jig will constantly jump when trolled at 9 or 10 knots with the line is suspended from above like from the outrigger or a kite. Perfect Dead stick bait for the outrigger when chunking
Deep jigging action is the most realistic EVER! Looks and acts like a squid with a (heavy duty) 34185 Mustad hook.

Nice gag on a 12 oz. Squid Decoy Jig in 105 feet under a huge stack of beeliners.
Great day offshore with Rodney Yohe catching gags and scamps; all the usual suspects on the bottom... and lots of them.

A good haul of fish with Barry while keeping an eye on several waterspouts (water tornadoes) and storms inshore of us. Life is GOOD!!!
MILES of amberjacks and sharks. Started 50+ miles offshore at a place that is normally a good scamp area in the deeper water, but wound up having to come back inside 8 or 9 miles to get out of the sharks.
This was the ultimate test with cross current, 10-15 knot winds, and 5-6 foot swells. The Rhodan held the 32 ft cat in place and allowed us to catch some quality fish. This was a "bucket list" trip for Van... He wanted to catch a grouper. Not only did he catch some grouper, he caught some good ones!
MISSION: Catch Brad a Grouper & Maiden Voyage ot the 33 Invincible.
A great day doing some "recon" for the opening day of grouper season.
Big George with a nice Decoy Jig red grouper
