This rig is an excellent lure for bluefish and drum. It features a split two-hook treble, a black 1/0 3-way swivel and a large duo-lock snap for simple attachment. The 80 lb. test mono. 15 lb wire and 1 1/4" pear float complete the rig.
Surf Fishing: Check out the beach at low tide and look for holes, sloughs and drop-offs. This is where you want to fish. White water means shallow water. A rolling "non-breaking" wave indicates deeper water. The very best scenerio is breaking water offshore with a deeper slough running close to the beach. If there is a "break" in this "cut". Fish the changes of the tide, early in the morning, and dusk until dark. Check your bait often. If the fish are not biting, try casting to a different spot, or slowly bring your rig in towards the shore. Sometimes fish like a moving target.
Use enough sinker weight to hold the rig to the bottom. Use a 3 -5 ounce hurricane sinker for the best results. If this sinker will not hold, try a Sputnik-type sinker
