Flashback time. I used to flyfish for Bluefish and Sea Trout on the North Carolina Outer Banks and Striped Bass around Chesapeake Bay in Virginia. Seems that anytime a Clouser baitfish imitation would get too close to the bottom, a hookup with a skate or a Hardhead was inevitable. Be sure you use rod with backbone; they use their "wings" to back peddle against resistance. If you're targeting them, a straight piece of 15-20# mono as a leader is in order; they are not shy. Preferred hooking the Stripers, Blues and Sea Trout back then and never really targeted them regardless how bad the fishing got.
