When it comes to rigs, its all about what the scenario dictates

2012-11-17 00:00

I HAVE received numerous questions of late regarding the different rigging methods of plastic baits. Which rig means what and when to use which rig? This is normally a simple decision to make, but can be more complicated than an angler would want it to be if the reasons behind the choice are not understood first.

As the name suggests, this rig includes absolutely no added weight to the bait and relies on the weight of the hook and the plastic bait alone. Because of this, I upsize my hook to add extra weight and will therefore normally use a 4/0 hook.
