    baits to withstand the test of time They can be rigged many different ways and can be used to catch a host of saltwater species including mahi mahi king mackerel wahoo tuna swordfish and marlin The strip is also effective when tipping a jig while bottom fishing for snapper and grouper While there are several ways in which to prepare strip baits depending on which species you target the following is a basic how to lesson for rigging a circle hook strip bait for daytime or nighttime swordfishing Bait Preparation Although strip baits can be prepared from bonito squid mackerel mullet or mahi mahi bellies we will concentrate on using bonito Using a surgically sharp fillet knife the key to this bait is learning to trim a willow leaf shape from the belly of the bonito 1 Lay the bonito on its side on a large cutting board Begin your cut from just behind the pectoral fin and angle the knife blade in such a way that you cut 1 8 deep into the flesh down the entire length of the lower section of the belly ventral ridge toward the tail Remember to keep the willow leaf shape in mind Tip Purchase a rubber strip bait from your local tackle store to use as a pattern Make the same curved cut just below the lateral line completing the willow shape For swordfish strips measuring three to five inches wide at its widest point and twelve to fifteen inches long are best 2 Lay the skin side of the strip on the cutting board and with your knife square off the tail end of your strip to serve as the leading edge of your bait when rigged Tail end end of the strip that was from the tail end of the bonito which will become the leading end of strip bait 3 If you end up with a thicker than desired strip you can remove some of the thickness from the meat by carefully running the blade horizontally from the same tail end of the strip removing excess meat from the skin It is important to work from the tail end of the strip because it follows the grain of the bonito s muscle fibers Each large bonito is good for about two strip baits from each side of the fish one bonito yields four strips Salting the strips and subsequently vacuum packing for the freezer will provide hardy baits for future outings Making the Rig Materials Six feet of bite leader to be used with wind on leader or 20 feet of 250 lb to 300 lb monofilament leader material 1 6mm to 2 0mm size crimp for the mono depending on leader material brand Rigging twine needle and a hook Mustad Ultra point 39950BLN Demon perfect circle hook size 9 0 to 14 0 1 Working from the leading squared off edge of the strip pass the point of the rigging needle completely through and approximately 1 8 from
