Deep-drop Bot­tom Rig

Saltwater Sportsman - - Canyon Explorations -

For blue­line tile­fish and sea bass, Del­campo uses 100-pound mono leader. For grouper and golden tiles, he steps up to 200-pound. A foot of 50-pound mono be­tween the lower swivel and the sinker pro­vides a break-off point should the sinker be­come snagged on the bot­tom. Del­campo chooses 8/0 cir­cle hooks for blue­lines and sea bass, and 12/0 cir­cle hooks for grouper and gold­ens. Blue­fish or al­ba­core strips, cut into tri­an­gles, make the best bait. Pass the hook through the thick end to pre­vent spin­ning and tan­gling.
