  • IGFA | Redi Rig Float System for Live Lining Large Baits
    the benefits of traveling and fishing different areas is that it allows the traveling angler to learn techniques and tactics that can be applicable to the areas that the person commonly fishes On a recent trip to the Northeast United States I came across a rig called a Redi Rig employed for live lining bunker or menhaden for striped bass The rig was highly effective for large striped bass and something that I thought would be a good tactic to pass along to the anglers worldwide The Redi Rig Release Float by Redi Rig Tackle in Northfield Ohio 330 467 3849 www redirig com offers fishing floats of various sizes designed for fresh and saltwater fishing from largemouth bass fishing to models big enough for striped bass shark tuna and swordfish The Redi Rig Float features a hollow tube and spring loaded column that runs through the middle of a Styrofoam float A pair of rubber stoppers act as a release clip attached to your mainline on one end of the rig while a stainless steel snap clip attaches to the same mainline on the other end of the Redi Rig Pushing down on the top of the spring loaded column near the stainless snap clip opens the release stoppers on the bottom of the rig The tension of the stoppers can easily be adjusted with a phillips screwdriver at the base of the rubber stoppers to hold the main line loosely or securely enough to withstand strong currents and the pull of large live baits like menhaden note placing the mainline closer to the center of the two stoppers will also add more tension to the mainline for a harder release vice versa For striped bass the rig can be fished with or without a weight If a weight

  • IGFA | Trolling Speed and Bait Position
    most out of your trolling time Two of the most common questions asked are 1 How far behind the boat should I position my baits 2 How fast should I troll Bait Position Distance Behind Boat Every boat is different and you should make your boat your own study Proper distance for most boats will be anywhere from 20 feet to 150 feet behind your boat Whether you have inboard diesel or outboard gas engines will most certainly dictate the distance you troll your baits and lures Start by positioning your baits or lures closer to the transom and move them back as you observe what they look like It is very important to log what results you get with baits at different distances and to make adjustments according to sea conditions types of lures or baits being used and what type of wake your boat produces It is also important to set up your spread with a staggered pattern This means that you are trying to create a school of bait fish in your wake and you want to cover as much area behind the boat as possible By staggering the baits you can make your spread look bigger and you will find that different bait and lure positions are prone to getting more action than others You can use the waves that your wake produces as a guide in picking proper bait lure position Try to position baits lures in clean areas These are places in your wake where the water is not disturbed by air bubbles This will give game fish a clear view of your spread Your boat is your biggest fish attractor when trolling so try to keep your baits close enough so that they are related to the boat s wake Trolling Speeds As with distance speed will vary from boat to boat The main idea is to have all your baits and lures working together as a unit You want lures to be trolled fast enough so that they are creating air pockets in front of them and have a bubbling or popping look to them This is commonly called a smoke trail The type size shape and weight of your lures will also determine how fast or slow you can troll Some lures are made for calm water and others for rougher conditions Pick lures that match the size of your tackle as this will also effect how well you can get the lures to work It is important to have similar lures that all work well together Common lure trolling speeds will vary from six knots to 12 knots Log the rpm speed conditions types of lures and positions so that you can get it right each time you troll lures Baits are commonly trolled at slower speeds For skipping or surface baits they should be breaking the surface and splashing without spending too much time in the air If the baits are tumbling they are being pulled too fast Adding

  • IGFA | Splicing Dacron Wind On Leaders
    another for creating a loop in one end of the Dacron 2 Approximately three feet of hollow core Dacron Black is the most popular color but some crews use high visibility neon orange or green Dacron 3 Approximately 20 feet of monofilament leader material 4 One piece of 220 grit sand paper for smoothing the end of the mono 5 A two foot section of wax rigging twine to serve the end of the splice The advent and use of wind on leaders has become all the rage in the sport fishing world Whether attaching 20 pound mono main line to 60 pound mono leader material or attaching 130 pound mono main line to 400 pound mono leader material almost every crew around the world uses a wind on leader at one time or another Although both of these applications serve the same purpose there are very distinct differences on how to attach the leader to the main line In this tackle tip we will discuss how to splice a heavy leader to heavy main line using a Dacron splice This method is generally used for wind on leaders from 150 pound test to 500 pound test There are several items needed to perform this task Start by cutting one end of the monofilament on a sharp angle Next take the sand paper and smooth the end that was just cut Insert this end of the mono into the hollow ended splicing needle included in your splicing kit Carefully thread the needle with attached mono through one end of the three foot section of hollow Dacron Slide the needle and mono up the Dacron until the mono is approximately 2 feet inside the Dacron Carefully pierce the Dacron and pull the mono out of this piercing Detach the mono from

  • IGFA | Bimini Twist vs Spider Hitch
    whether or not to create a double line or loop coming off of the main line on their reel There are various reasons why someone may need to create a loop in their line loop to loop connection such as attaching fly line to backing connecting a wind on leader or the need to create a strong connection to a barrel or snap swivel There are a few different ways to create a loop or double line but the most common knots used are the spider hitch and the bimini twist Spider Hitch or Bimini Twist Both of these knots will create a double line or loop but when tied properly only the bimini twist will provide a knot with 90 95 of the original line strength A spider hitch can be faster and easier to tie especially while in a rocking boat but if the knot isn t tied properly and the hitches don t come tight in the proper order the knot has a very good chance of failing Because of the nature of the knot when using a braided line a spider hitch will frequently fail due to the fish putting enough tension on the line to have the wraps of a spider hitch cut through and break the knot A bimini twist has proven to be much more effective when using a small diameter line such as a braided line Why the double line There are a variety of different reasons for the need to create a loop or double line in terminal tackle applications One of the most popular applications of double line is to create a stronger knot connection to a swivel or other terminal connection Besides knot strength another benefit to having double line is protection against the line chafing If the bill
