Fishing with CP

When, Where, And How Could I Use My Havoc Pit Boss?

Recommended Posts

I need people's opinions, because I really want to catch a fish on it. Should I Texas rig it with a worm weight? And where should I use it? I usually bank fish in ponds.

4/0 EWG and a 1/8 oz tungsten sinker. I start by throwing it parallel to the bank and hopping it around. If there's cover, throw it into that stuff.

 

You could also fish it weightless on top like a buzzbait, too.

1/4oz bullet weight, 4/0 EWG hook, pitch it at everything that a fish might hold on.

There's tons of ways to fish them, but that's about the best way to use them that I've found.

I use them most as a jig trailer.  They work great for me!

T-rig, flip/punch, chatterbait and swim jig trailers, and on biffleheads.

Do you cut it or anything whenever you use it as a jig trail?

 

 

No...  use the whole, big, tasty-looking thing!

Fish love 'em!

 

I started the day with a Pit Boss as the trailer on a 1/2 oz. Stanley rattling jig.  On my first cast early this morning around some old railroad trestle pilings, I hooked a good fish but noticed it was fighting strangely... it just didn't feel like a bass.  It wasn't.  It was a 4.5 lb. walleye.

 

Later in the day that same jig/trailer took a nice smallmouth and a big northern pike, too.  Versatile!

 

Tight lines,

Bob

Any time, any place, any way.

 

But I usually have one texas rigged with a light bullet, 1/8 or 3/16, and I work it slow wherever I think fish are at. When the nose gets torn up, I save them for later use as a jig trailer.

 

They are sized perfecty for most 4/0 EWG hooks. Bury the hook point back into the plastic after rigging to make it super weedless.

 

Best of luck!

Let me count the ways I use it:

 

On a t-rig using 1/4 -1oz. weights for pitching docks, laydowns, weed pockets, misc. cover, or punching...............CHECK

 

As a flipping, football, finesse, or swim jig trailer............CHECK

 

Drop shot in open water on spinning gear, or power shot in cover.............CHECK

 

On Biffle/wobble type heads..............CHECK

 

IMHO they are the "duct tape" of creature, beaver, craw, and/or flipping baits, tons of uses. Do some other baits excel in other area's......sure, but not many are as versatile as the Pit Boss. BONUS............they are cheap too.

Honestly if you can find a way they don't work I'd be more surprised than the other way around.

I've had best outcomes using them t-rigged, but as already mentioned, there are lots of ways to use them.
