How to Fish Bonefish
As bonefish get bigger, so do their meals. The Slider Bugg imitates the small, bottom dwelling baitfish that big bonefish eat. These baitfish have a mottled appearance, and the Slider Bugg imitates them effectively. There is a flashy wing above the tail that adds to the appeal. It is tied on the Buggs Bonefish Jig Head and will always land hook point up. Ideally suited for sight casting to bonefish, and has also proven very effective on redfish, speckled trout, flounder, and snook on the flats. Complete recipes, tying instructions, and tying video is available.
