How To Rig A Chase Bait



Galvin Leadin

    Teasers have long been a part of sport fishing, from the simplest of squid chains to the complicated of dredges. Too often they are associated with the just the billfishing season, but in reality teasers are valuable in all forms of big game fishing from tuna to dolphins.

An appropriately-sized lure or lure-Mud Flap combination can be deadly, but it’s always hard to supplant the effectiveness of natural bait.
