Hogys are big - maybe bigger than the soft plastics you're used to fishing. Hogys have been successfully tested all over the country and abroad, by the Hogy Lure Co. and by professionals and recreational fisherman, on dozens of fresh and saltwater species.
This monster is quickly gaining popularity with anglers looking to mimic very large eels, or anything else long and snaky! They are so long, they actually swim with a double bend when worked properly. You'll be amazed how much they look like an eel. As a casting bait, The 14 inch Hogy is most effective when fished with the tip of the rod pointed toward the water and twitched as the bait is retrieved. For the angler who prefers to troll, the bait will really come to life if its twitched.
Original Hogy Tandem Quick Rigs are designed to withstand even school sized blue fin tuna. They are made with heavy monofilament and crimps. The hooks used are from Eagle Claw’s Lazer™ heavy duty live bait series. Not only are they indestructible, the heavy nature of the hooks serves as an excellent keel for the Hogy, ensuring superior action, even in surf.
14 Inch Hogy: Long Profile, Slinky Action, Ultimate Attractor
Hogy Lure Co Recommendations by Species
- Function: Plain and simple, the 14 inch Hogy is a Big Fish bait. Though the 14 inch Hogy is a perfect imitator of big eels and snakes, its sinuous action will drive fish crazy. It's the "Ultimate Attractor!
- Action: When fished with short rod twitches, there is pretty much no way around sending a rolling "S" formation through the bait. If you're trolling with the 14" Hogy, the bait will literally quiver as it makes its way behind the boat.
