SPLIT SHOT RIG
A simple small hook rig to catch mini species. Tie on your hook and rig it with a soft lure, and then pinch on one or more split shot to add weight.
The closer you have the shot to the lure the more control you will have over the lure. The further you have the shot from the lure means less control but it adds a weightless lure element to the rig.
Another great way to use the split shot rig is to tie the knot to the hook with a Palomar knot, as if you were tying a dropshot rig. Leave a tag end of about an inch and pinch on some shot close to the hook. The rig will act like a jika rig/dropshot rig, making the lure stand up on the bottom, and giving a good wobble on the retrieve. If the shot gets snagged it should pull off.
