zup all things seem to be picking up
what type baits have been used to catch the horses at sand bridge
was this at the pier or in the surf?
got the itch for some bent rods and tight lines.
went to the cbbt today all skunk the gulls looked like decoys just bobbing with the waves. good to get the lines wet though
I have had problems with them twisting the line that's attached to my hooks. Especially when I have had doubles. Does this happen while there are still in the water or does it happen on the haul up to the pier?
Main question is: when using store bought/ready made high-low metal leaders could I attach a "swivel" to each of the two wire loop extensions and then attach the hook and it's line to the swivel to help reduce line twist up? If so should I use a snap swivel or just tie on a plain barrel swivel. I rather use line on the hook instead of attaching hooks directly to the snap end of swivels.
I'm sure you could experiment w/the swivels to reduce twist. You never know until you try, and I'll try anything once.
I would suggest taking some time to learn how to tie your own rigs. Using heavier monofilament snelled to your hooks on those store bought bottom rigs might help w the twist. It's nearly impossible to stop it completely though.
Replace them when needed and keep the hooks and practice tying your own. Go to the "how to" page, <--- There on the left menu, then to the "knots guide", that will help.
I don't see why not,Surf Stirrer,Just remember-Don't cross any lines,stay in control,and have a blast.
Unfortunatly,fate has played a miserable trick on me,Here I am stuck @ work on a Saturday morning,Tapping away at a keyboard,thinking,wishing I was fishing.
