Headed out sat….. how da biting
I’ve heard that, and sometimes I do explore, 1/2 turn 1 turn ,2 turns , sometimes you get lucky and dangle it right in front of there faceJust my short experience. I started tying up 3 hook rigs. First it gives you more bait, so the little ones will take longer to steal. Next, old timer once told me the bigger sea bass are usually up higher than the smaller ones. The 3 hook rigs will cover more of the water column.
So when fishing 120-150', you do not have to check bait after a couple missed nibbles.
Rigs look good!
There nice I like the variety I tie the barrel right to my braid , this way when I do happen to find to much structure I bust it off , barrel always stays on the braid I cut WHATS left on the rig and tie on a new oneBeen tying my own rigs for years. I do 3 and 4 hook combos and some crazy hook experiments I will try. I use the glow beads, and glow squid skirts. Sometimes the plain hook rigs work best, other times the squid skirts work best. I do use a long leader 3 - 4' . I mostly use 3/0-5/0 Gamakatsu Octopus J hooks. I used Gamakatsu 3/0 Octopus circle hooks on my last outing last year and did very good with them- as it seemed like a few fish were getting off the hook on the way up when I had J hooks on.. Had luck with Berkeley gulp glow mullets too.

Ahhh so it’s barrel to barrel with a clip in the middleYeah, going to make more today with a smaller drop loop. I made one rig with 1/0 J hooks incase there are any trigger fish in the deeper waters. I'll put a heavier tactical anglers clip on my main line to switch rigs out on the fly.
