I introduce how to make rigs below.

Hooks with line

I recommend line with two hooks.

If you use long line and hooks(4 hooks or 5 hooks line),you can not cat the line.

Because the line may is longer than the fishing rod,you should use line and hooks shorter than your fishing rod.


I usually use 2 hooks line.

I recommend a set spreader, sinker, line and hooks.

If you use weight 5 hook size 7 set,you can fishing many kinds of fish.

Sand borer likes palolo.

So,I recommend the plastic worm with smell and taste like palolo.

If you use plastic worm without smell,you may catch some sand borers.

You should use the plastic worm with smell and taste for good catch.

I recommend this plastic worm:mini power palolo
