The Striper are getting ready to come out of the river, water is getting too hot and the Herring are headed down river. On the river at 4:45am for the out going tide. I know the only lure to take out of the box is my Frigg Walking Popper from Odin Lure Company. I load it up with Fish Smack and start casting. This time of the year the fish have only one thing on their mind: getting back to salt water. With my Helpless Herring 1.5 oz plug and Fish Smack I’m looking for some big ones. After a few cast this 34” Striper just could not help himself from having the last meal in the river.
There has to be some more out there.
When we went out fishing there were at least 40 other boats in the same area. It was kind of an over-whelming sight. When the Stripers surfaced they were right around our boat and we were the only ones catching them. Once the other boats saw the fish we were bringing in they started shadowing us. They did not have Odin Lure Company lures and Fish Smack. We were the only ones catching fish. The Odin Lure Fish Catching system is my secret weapon.

“Fishing the new OOZZIE Jig on a recent early season cod trip with some of my On the Water counterparts was an eye opening experience. I prefer to catch cod and haddock over pollack and the one thing that really caught my attention was that the OOZZIE Jig ONLY caught codfish! While my counterparts were fighting through pollack, I was catching quality cod with a blue oozzie jig and herring bio edge combination.”
“I can’t wait to experiment with other techniques with this exciting new product. Using the OOZZIE Jig as a “stink sinker” while chunking for stripers, chumming for winter flounder or fluke or any other species is an interesting idea to add a chum slick to your arsenal that takes the fine tuning of keeping your chum slick in line with your offering out of the equation. With the OOZIE Jig substituted as a “stink” sinker well on my radar to see if it will give me the edge I think it will, is an exciting experiment that I can’t wait to see the results of! Some of the smaller sizes allows this experiment to carry over to freshwater; ice fishing or jigging up lake trout with a chummy offering sounds effective to me!”
“I caught this 30 pound striper on a 3 ounce OOZZIE Jig.”
Capt. Pete Santini of Fishing Finatics was sent some of our new jigs to see if they would work out on the Galapagos Islands. Well, I guess they do. Sweet, now we can add Tuna to the list.

“We didn’t catch anything big, but we sure caught alot of fish. Fishing out on the Ledge with the new OOZZIE Jigs, and BioEdge. We where able to pick up cod, haddock, hake, and some pollack with a few cusk. Between the three of us we able to bring home about one hundred pounds of fillets each. These new jigs really work awsome on all kinds
“The new OOZZIE Jig and BioEdge. Kicked the bottoms’ ass last Saturday. This really big pollack, a boat load of cod and haddock – all caught using the new OOZZIE Jigs. This was the first time I ever used the new jigs and was very impressed. This pollack was caught on the very first drop.”

Capt. Eric Ciocher host of the Ultimate Catch fishing show down in Florida is showing off this sweet Sea Trout caught using one of our new OOZZIE Jigs loaded with BioEdge.
The Ultimate crew has done it again. Rod Neiswange and Capt. Eric Ciocher landed the very sweet 30 pound Red Fish. Using a white 3/4 oz. OOZZIE Jig loaded with Bioedge. Nice
Congratulations to Rob Frye the 2011 winner of the OOZZIE Jig Big Cod Contest.
This 22 pound cod, caught using a 16 ounce silver with pink squid skirt OOZZIE Jig, loaded with BioEdge Herring oil, did the trick.

“When the striper are hitting you can often find Bill (son) and I fishing the coast of NH and Mass with live mackerel on the end of our lines. This summer when the bait ran out I tied on my first OOZZIE Jig “Bang” moments later I was on. The… jig continued to attract striper throughout the evening… only problem, only one jig! We are looking forward to trying the smaller OOZZIE Jigs thru the ice this winter.” Thank you Bob for a quality product that really works!”
Here at the OOZZIE Lure Co., we have been working on our smaller fresh water jigs. We gave a few samples out so they could be tested. Loading the jigs with ground up salmon eggs, these anglers were able to hook up on a number of real nice steel head. SWEET!

We caught just about everything on the new OOZZIE JIg.
Here’s more proof. That the new OOZZIE Jigs works real well in freshwater.

Capt. Howard Owen of team Fish Blind down in New Jersey has had a great deal of success with the new OOZZIE Jigs. Catching this monster Striper on a 4 oz. blue white jig.
Captain Skip Chabot
“Note to all fisherman from Captain Skip Chabot of the vessel Sea Sea Rider regarding OOZZIE Jigs field testing.
Performance while casting was outstanding. The retrieval of this lure should be a slow to medium rate of retrieve. Occasional t…witching of the rod tip works excellent. We used this jig with squid strip enhancement. We also used BioEdge scent products, specifically herring and menhaden.
The field testing also included vertical jigging with excellent performance with or without enhancement. Captain’s note: while vertical jigging allow the lure to freefall on the downswing, slow on the upswing. We hooked fish with both methods. However the freefall method attracted more fish.
Stay tuned for further information as the season progresses. My evaluation at this point is 10 out of 10.!”
