Fishing Rig tying is simple and should be something that is learned by all fisherman. This particular rig can be used by fisherman to target several types of fish throughout the world, whilst bait fishing from any platform like your boat or a pier.
Sliding Running Fishing Rig Tying Snapper Mulloway Pre Made Bait Rigs
Running rigs can be modified to catch big fish or small fish including Snapper, Gummy Shark and Mulloway to name a few. Anglers can catch similar fish using this rig. Hook sizes ranging from as small as #4 (whiting hook) through to 8/0 are available with the use of fluorocarbon leader from as light as 12lb through to 80lb depending on the fisherman’s rigging needs. While fishing a fast current for fish such as Flathead, Bream, Bass, Mullet or Pinky Squire, the fisherman should simply tie the running rig on 12lb to 30lb leader using the hook size that suit’s the targeted fish’s mouth size, for example: for small fish using lighter leader and smaller hook size as outlined in our video.
When fishing for bigger fish such as Snapper the angler should simply go up in leader thickness and hook size.
When rigging the hooks, fisherman can modify the rig by using Snell twin hooks on the end of the leader or a single circle hook. My preferred rig to use when rig tying is with Snell hooks particularly when targeting Mulloway, and a single circle hook when fishing for Gummy Shark, Whiting or Snapper.
When the current slows down it is recommended the fisherman switches to a Paternoster Rig. For Paternoster, Rigs check out Flasher Rigs, by Reedy’s Rigs.
