Slug Go and Teaser......Deadly Combo

This good size schoolie
hit the Slug-Go at dark.
This combination of a Slug-Go and
Red Gill teaser has been a deadly
combination in the last two evenings.
I fished the Bay again tonight and loaded up on fish.  Most were schoolies in the 16-22 inch range, but I also had another large fish that was maybe a keeper, maybe just under a keeper. The fish tonight were hitting well after dark, a real good sign that the fish are becoming more active.
The hot artificial combination that has been scoring big time in the last two nights has been a Red Gill teaser set up on a leader along with a white, 7 1/2 inch Slug-Go at the terminal end.  The leader that holds this all this together is made with 30 lb. test mono and is about 2 1/2 feet long.  The teaser (Red Gill) dangles about 6 inches off the leader's swivel.  This is cast out and twitched along with short pulls of the rod tip as you retrieve at a slow to moderate speed.  The Slug-Go moves erratically in the water and stripers simply can not resist slamming it.  One fish out of seven or eight will take the teaser which sometimes leads to double headers.  This is hot stuff right now.
