This past season in the Sandy Hook area we saw a ton of sand eels. I would like to make up some umbrella rigs for trolling this fall and wondered what color surgical tubes I should get for making up the rigs. Also, how long do you guys run the middle leader coming off the umbrella to the eel....Thanks, Greg.

On a standard size rig (8 Tubes + Center tube) I create clips for my tubes.


The 4 outer get a tube clipped on to them (with a small piece of line) so they drop back about 12 inches.

The center Drops back about 6.

The 4 "Middle" loops in the line get teasers. I use silver colored spinners. I put the spinner on a split ring. Then Split ring to a swivel then another split ring - onto the spreader. This allows them to spin freely and flash.

For colors - I like Yellow, Green, White, and Black. We usually start with two different Umbrellas (For Example: A white and a yellow) We just rotate them out as they prove unproductive.
