Cir­cle Hook and Skirt

Saltwater Sportsman - - Tactics + Tackle -

Form a trailer loop of 100- to 300-pound mono just large enough to fit over the ballyhoo’s head, then pull the loop for­ward un­der the gill plates. Next, slide an egg sinker over both legs of the loop and crimp them to­gether to lock all in place. Slip a lure head or skirt onto the trailer, then crimp the trailer to the bend of an in-line cir­cle hook. Fish this lure-bal­ly­hoocir­cle-hook combo as you would a more tra­di­tional cir­cle-hook trolling rig, com­plete with drop-backs.
