Here are the rigs that I use when I am out on the bay .
They are all very simple and make it easy to organise yourself
when the boat is getting tossed around or the fish are running hot.
I try to only use BALL BEARING SWIVELS where possible
on my setups because they are of the best quality and super tough . The reason for this is that all my rigs are interchangeable . I can use the snapper rig when needed and if it gets quiet i can then set up the rod for drifting on flathead .
For example , if you have spent the morning going after snapper and have
no luck , you can then switch to the flathead rig on the same rods . I know it sonds like a bit of overkill but if you consider that Snapper rods are now fairly light tipped and you may sometimes get flathead of up to 3 kilos . How may people honestly catch alot of SNAPPER over 3 kilos , most are from 500gms to 1 or 2 kilos .
The only exception to this is
on my WHITING rods , i keep them rigged up only one way with no snap-swivel conecting the main line to the leader . Being able to intercange rigs from rod to rod means less clutter in the boat and less time setting things up . All this equals more time fishing and more fish caught .
Baitfeeder rig comming soon .
