RE: Poppin' cork jiggin'
Hawn, After dark was a blast ,off a small sound side bridge. It was quite dark there, despite much car traffic behind me, and,despite that, kind of neat to always hear the loud "clink" of metal beads after a jerking motion. One time,especially, a nice sized bluefish reacted immediately to the first pop, and about tore my arm off; hooked so well that the 4" soft plastic was completely engulfed and deep into his throat! Also the speckled trout were drawn in to the loud pops and then readily found my jig! I was kind of surprised that flounder or other bottom fish didn't react, but as I mentioned, the wind and current had thrown many fish off their feed.

Fish a popping cork rig for specs (speckled trout) around structure such as piers, jetties, and anchored boats has been a method used in the Chesapeake since I started fishing the brackish/salt water areas
