I have one more question? I understand the anchor rod and the king rig. I dont understand how the pin rig is attached to the anchor line and how it releases when you get a strike. I would appreciate it if anyone could help me out. THANKS!!!!!!!

Use a release clip, just like if you were trolling big planer boards from a boat.

I'm pretty sure that some folks just use a clothes pin.

Clothes pin, shower curtain hanger through one of the sides of the clothes pin and a rubber band hooked to the fighting line. Oh and about 3oz of lead on the shower curtain hanger as well.

if you use a wire pin rig rather than a rubber band, take the two ends, pinch them together and slide them through the big eye of your king rig. When a fish strikes, the two ends will bend together, then pop free.
