Whether by trolling or drifting, fishing leadhead bucktail jigs is one of the most productive methods of catching large, daytime striped bass in southern New England. Rips — large or small — hold baitfish like squid, which bucktails imitate. And those baitfish draw big, lazy stripers, waiting for an easy meal to sweep up the structure past their noses.
