The Bait Rig - Triple Drop Fishing Leader with Hooks Included - 80lb test mono, 24" long
If you don’t have at least one of these in your arsenal, then you're making your first mistake. The #1 rule when surf fishing is to use fresh bait. This leader will provide you with fresh bait for the entire time you are on the beach. This leader is designed to catch bait fish and other fish up to 24". It is perfect for kids since it provides non-stop action.
My personal success with this leader has come over the past few years. I know it sounds silly because this is just a leader but the original attempt looked and performed nothing like this final result. After much tweaking on the original design, the final result will out perform any other leader like it. I have used the store bought triple drop leaders and they do not compare to these.
There is a catch though. The leader has to be set up correctly in order for it to perform the way I am telling you it does. I am not going to tell you all of my secrets but it is important that I give you tips to help you be as successful as you can with this product. Rule #1 - Always use a spider weight (not included with leader purchase). Use a 4 oz or 6 oz spider weight and attach it to the swivel at the bottom of the leader. Rule #2 - Use three different baits on every cast (a different bait for each hook). This will keep multiple species of fish interested. My favorite trio is squid, shrimp and Fishbites. Rule #3 - Always check the hooks to make sure they are still sharp. After hauling in countless fish and being exposed to sand and salt, hooks will eventually get dull. Rule #4 - When replacing the hooks, make sure you use circle hooks that are the same size or close to the same size as the ones that are included. I have found that the smaller the hook, the better.
