Not sure how he does it but spider hitches are popular on party boats in northern Channel Islands fishing deep. It allows you to easily add (and remove) the circle hooks (and bank weight) to the loop ends with a girth hitch. That way if you are in a tangle, you can take the hooks off and then just pull the mono and it usually untangles pretty quick.
Kinda looks what i do on my two hook porky rigs. I make a loop in the line and bring it thru the loop two times. Be better to show ya in person.
I’ve been wondering the same thing.At Risk of being blamed for jinxing it...Anybody been watching the weather for this upcoming trip? The 14th and 15th?
I'm no expert but it's looking rough to say the least. 7+ foot seas and 20-25kt winds.
My first experience with the possibility of weather cancelling a trip.
I will show you next time your on the boat but it’s pretty easy. I tie a regular dropper loop but tie it longer and cut it in the middle and tie a hook to each bitter end. The right way to do it would be to tie a blood knot with really long tag ends to tie your hooks to and that would keep them separated better but it’s a little more time consuming to do it that way.
Noob question. Does anyone use live mullet instead of flyer?11/3-4
Sorry for the late report. We had a decent trip.
We didn’t bottom fish long and only made two stops with the first one being a bust but the second stop was solid. Beeliners were fierce, I caught my two day limit easily in the hour we were there and most of the guys fishing live piggies were rewarded with nice Scamps.
Our night was steady for the most part with a lull from 12-3am. Early on the bite was Halcos and Frenzy’s and late in the night it turned into a chunk bite, up until a pod of dolphins showed up just before sunrise and completely shut it down.
