All of our knockers can be used for inshore or offshore. Pair any knocker with live bait, dead bait, cut bait or plastics. Weight and size of the hook dependeds on what your fishing for. Our larger setups are perfect for Grouper, Amberjack, Tarpon, Tuna, Wahoo, Kingfish, Cobia and most offshore fish. Smaller Knockers such as our 3/8oz. or 1oz. are perfect for Trout, Flounder, Redfish, Snook, and Snapper. Best used where the current or wind is strong. This is our best seller and is one of the latest fishing innovations.
