Now that J plug season is here, what is everyone’s favorite plugs to run, and what is your go to setback off the riggers? Do you run short leads or lengthen them out ?

Silver Hoarde with the red mouth one close to the ball about 8 ft and the other about 15 ft back. Can also be run off shorter coppers (200-300's) or leadcore down the chute or even toplined in shallower water, but sometimes they can be too much to handle right on inline planers

Pretty much just riggers?

I’ve run them off riggers, coppers, and dispies. I’ve had good luck with “bloody nose,and green glow).

I’m throwing it out there to see what other people do . Never too late to stop learning new tricks ....

 Lovin  my J plugs 

 

# 3 &4 s same as above but add in a white black dot first light . 

 

Tie direct . 35 to 75 + lead . 

 

Dives 7 ft with 35 lead 10 ft with 75 lead 

 

Run just off bottom with one ,the other half way down . 

 

That means if you are in 15 ft of water ,back 75 ,down 2 or 3 ft . 

 

Speed

Very forgiving 

get hits both fast and slow 

do a lot of s curves

speed up on turns 

constantly adjust depth to  bottom ,this is critical 

 

best lure for shallow staging kings in front of creek mouths 

 

great lure for small boat tactics and less experienced guys . All I bring out from now till it's over. 

 

no  riggers ? Get a slide diver . 

 

sameleads ,put dive same depth as you would the rigger
