Default Mingo Tips

We are going to go out this Saturday and want to target Mingo for a bit. We always catch huge ARS, tons of 28" AJ and the occasional King. But i want to diversify my cooler and pick up some Mingo. What are some good tips for targeting these guys. Tackle and bait are my main concerns. Spot wise i have a few in mind that i have seen many pulled up from. Unless you have a good spot you want to PM me . Thanks for the help ahead of time. Tight lines!

Mingo Tips-10-10-10_1706-jpg

Down size to 20# test line, small wire circle hook with a quarter size piece of squide. Got your limit off the Brige Rubble all in the 2 to 3 pound range.

I 2nd the above, when your marking them in the water but not biting we go to a 20lb flouro leader, with a small cirlce hook, small (just as said above, quarter sized squid) to a swivel/knocker rig with a 1-2.5oz weight.
I guy years back was catching the crap out of them right next to us, I finally asked, he motored over and told me exactly what to do. Pretty cool, never forget that.

Yes, we were on the I-10 Bridge Rubble. I use Eagle Claw Sea Circle light wire #3 or #4 hook.
