Any 1 on this board ever watch that show on Comedy Central,Crank Yankers?

I think the Jerky Boys were a lot better myself.
Bart Simpson calling ,Moe the bartender,is pretty hilarious, too.

But if someone would crank call me about a blitz.........

This was no crank, I know the guys well. I never said blitz, but they are catching.

The SB pier folks are reliable, and fish their a$$es off too.

I think Bart works VB pier anyway. :p

squid, tipped with blood worm is a sure bet to entice a hardhead every time.

Got a quesiton bout them horse croaker.

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.

Thanks

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.

Last year,I was using the old reliable fish finder-rig/carolina rig to fish for croakers.Caught my biggest ones with that set up....Lil Creek Fence,Chixs Beach,by the jetty.

2-4 oz egg sinkers,lil red bead,30 lbs swivel,leader,(gold)hook.That easy...I just reel in nice and smooth.


You can go Hi-Lo pre made rigs if you were fishing for bait,but I would use the pre-made type that you can clip your own hook(s) on.
