Reader Report: Nantucket Inshore Classic Albies


Hogy and Salty Cape fan Eric Danner fished the Inshore Classic on Nantucket recently, finding excellent false albacore action from the shore during his stint out on the island. In his own words:

“Here are a few fish caught on Hogy epoxy jigs during my trip to Nantucket with the guys last week. To say we crushed them would be an understatement. Over the course of the 7 days on the Island I put 30-40 albies on the beach and a couple dozen blues. One day I banged 3 blues over 10 pounds, which are the biggest blues I’ve caught on the island in the 7 years I’ve been going out there. All of my fish were caught on the Hogy epoxy jigs, ranging from the 7/8 to the 2 ounce. It seemed the green and pink were the deadliest options although I banged a handful on the 1-1/4 ounce silver mack.”
