Bait Rigs are a must for salt water fishing. Still fishing off the side of a boat or from a jetty or trolling with some speed, fish take bait before lures.
Salt Water Bait Rigs
Similar to Fresh Water Rigs
Salt water bait rigs are fished basically the same as fresh water rigs. They are larger, heavier and harder to manage when casting. From a jetty or pier, floats may prevent tangles and lost bait when casting. Many styles of rigs work best when fished straight down.
Rig Size and Weight
Live bait for salt water wishing is large and usually active. Harness should allow bait to move without tangling leader, weight and hook. Fresh bait must be presented properly. Rigs can prevent tangling while causing the bait to move simulating live action.
Regulations should be checked for the maximum number of hooks allowed per line. Where size is an issue, larger rigs and hooks can decrease taking undersized fish. Always know and respite, take size and limit.
