ribbon fish jigging
It is new to the US, but they catch ribbon fish on jigs in Korea and Japan.
I experimented 2 oz spoon for big ribbon fish out of Virginia Beach the other day and found it worked as good as using bait.
The technique is simple. You cast out the jigs, drop to the bottom and reel in pretty fast speed.
I am sure others will find better lures/jigs for ribbon fish soon.
I heard big ribbon fish stay off Virginia Beach from July to Sept.
There are a few charter boats targeting ribbon fish already.
You will know why they love to catch ribbon fish once you hook up a nice one. It pulls the drag.
