Rigging question.

6 posts in this topic

I've heard a lot of people using the "Plain Hook" with a split shot lately when fishing for eye's.

How exactly do you rig that.

i.e.-how far up the line to put the split shot or how big of split shot.

It really depends on the fish. I would start with 2-3' and work from there. I used to use a rig with a bobber stop and an egg sinker that way I could adjust the length as needed. I have been in a situation where one guy in the boat had a 5' and I had a 3' he was out fishing me 4 to 1 I moved mine to 5' and then it equaled out. I have had the same situation with hook color too. I had a red hook my partner had a blue hook and was out catching me. I was hard headed and figured that since most of the hook was covered with the bait it really did not matter. Well after watching him catch fish after fish I switched to blue and immediatly started catching fish. Keep asking questions and trying different things you will get there. As far as weight size I always started with the a 1/4 oz and moved to a bigger weight if I could not keep good bottom contact. In my opinion bottom contact is key. Good Fishing!!

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
