SPLIT SHOT RIG

Sea Angler (UK) - - LURE FISHING -

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.

Tie on a hook, add a lure and pinch on a shot
