Freestyle vertical Jjigging or as some call it, Yo-Yo jigging, has become extremely popular in the past few years. Blue Water Candy Lures developed the Roscoe just for bottom fishing with freestyle jigging gear. It resembles a squid and is designed to be used with assist style hooks and rings. The main body is painted in light emitting pearl GLOW with several accent colors available to choose from. There is a small fin on the backside to help the jig cut through the water quickly.
While designed for bottom fishing, during product testing we noticed that it worked equally well in the middle of the water column too! Great for Grouper and other bottom dwellers as well as AmberJacks, Tuna, Dolphin and other fish that feed on squid. It comes in three sizes, 4, 7 and 11 ounces.
They are available both rigged and unrigged. Rigged models include a heavy duty split ring and solid ring, as well as an assist hook made of 500lb. kevlar cord. The 4 and 7 ounce models come with an 8/0 hook, the 11 ounce model comes with an 11/0 hook.
