How to bait your rig with soft crab

How to rig soft crab

How to bait your rig with soft crab Fishing with soft crab in the late spring/early summer months can be very productive. It seems as if Rockfish love soft crab as much as people do! Mike shows us how to rig your set-up with soft crab and where/how to fish this bait. What you need: How To Rig It 1.) Tie a snap swivel onto your main line (the line coming off your reel). 2.) Attach your 18″-24″ leader with #2 treble hook to your snap swivel. 3.) Attach your weight/fish finder rig above the snap swivel onto your main line. 4.) Quarter your live soft crab by first cutting it in half down the back between the eyes, then cutting each half, in half the other direction. 5.) Hook the backfin area of one of the quarters on the hook then put another hook through the center of whats left hanging. 6.) Secure the bait on the treble hook by using 2-3 bait bands. That’s it! You can fish this bait much like you would fish other cut bait or chumming/chunking when targeting Rockfish.

Join Braided main line with a Monofilament or Fluorocarbon leader

Join your Braided main line with a Monofilament or Fluorocarbon leader Alex shows us how to join your braided main line with a Monofilament or Fluorocarbon leader using three different knots. The three knots that Alex uses to do this are the Uni to Uni, The Albright and the FG knot. Many anglers will have their favorite knot to use for joining their main line to a leader, so Alex covers the pros and cons of each of these knots and shows us how to tie each one. We’ll cover the three knots in order of ease to tie. Uni to Uni Knot The first knot is the easiest of the three and is called the Uni to Uni or Double Uni knot. This is best for lighter lb test line as the connection knot can be a bit bulky with heavier pound test. The Uni to Uni is also best used on rods with wider guides for the same reason. Uni to Uni knot strength is typically very good and the strength can be improved if you double the line before tying the knot. This is one of the most popular knots for joining lines because of the reliability and easiness to tie. The Albright Knot The second knot for joining your braided line to a mono or fluro leader is the Albright knot. The Albright or Modified Albright knot is stronger than the Uni to Uni but is a little more difficult to tie. With practice, this will be your go-to knot for joining

How to: Rig a Daisy Chain

How to rig a daisy chain

Many anglers who are trolling for trophy Rockfish will troll umbrella rigs but one of the downsides to an umbrella rig is the amount of weight you need to get the rig deep in the water column. The amount of drag that is produces by the lures (paddle tail shads with a parachute trailer with a larger paddle tail) causes the rig to want to rise to the surface. One solution is to troll a daisy chain rig which essentially does everything “in-line”, reducing drag. This allows you to run a lighter rig and get that lighter rig deeper in the water column. Rigging your own daisy chain is relatively easy with the right tools. Let’s cover everything you will need to make your own awesome daisy chain. What you need: How to rig it up: 1.) Cut a leader at about 6′-8′ out of 80lb-100lb leader material. 2.) Attach your parachute to the line with a crimp by passing the leader line through the crimp, then through the lure, then back through the crimp leaving a small loop gap between the leader and the lure. Don’t apply too much pressure to the crimp, it may compromise the leader line. Just make sure the leader line won’t come free when a nice pull is applied to the line. 3.) Measure 12″-18″ back and mark with your finger to put the first crimp on. Slide crimp down the leader line and apply enough pressure to fasten the crimp to the leader line
