This is a terrific rig for retrieving slowly from shore or for slow trolling in shallow water. The diamond jig body allows for long casts off the beach, making this rig especially useful when surf fishing for fluke as it is easy to toss out past the breakers. The diamond jig rig also provides plenty of attractive flash to catch the eye of hungry summer flatties.
Bait this rig with a long pennant of squid, a fish strip, or a combination of both. Keep the diamond on the bottom as you retrieve or troll. Due to the flashy weight, this rig is not recommended if bluefish are on the prowl.
