Roosterfish: Being the Designated Plugger

Being “designated” doesn’t have to refer to providing a safe ride home during the holidays.  It could mean that you are standing on a warm beach, tossing large, noisy chunks of plastic into the surf and doing the “dirty work” for your friends as they watch for telltale charge of a roosterfish.  Scott Willoughby writes all about it in The Denver Post.

“The plugger throws out his lure, cranking hard on the spinning reel to tease the school closer to shore as fly casters drop their own enticements into the fray and backpedal up the bank in an effort to add speed to the retrieve.”
