I did not realize anyone paid any attention to what I wrote on the forum.
I know it sounds complicated, but again after doing it a few times it is super easy to rig up the way I do.
Things to remember:
You will buy more jigs, plastics, and more hooks.
You will use more leader line.
You will find yourself tying up and having to re-rig more often. This is due to break offs and ending up with a rats nest when you lose a fish at the surface.
The above being said, you will also have a lot greater chance of getting bit because of the large swath of the water column you are covering.
I tried it totally on a whim and it worked!
Dad became a believer real quick when he saw my results in the first 15 minutes of fishing with my rod rigged that way,
Take the end of your braid and pull the line back towards you so it's paralleling the line. The end is coming back towards you. The end of the braid is now the bottom of the letter U and you are looking into the U if you will from the top. Pinch the top of the U and make a circle with the bottom of the braid. Go through that circle three times and pull it tight. You will have a knot with a loop at the end of the braid. Trim the excess.
Now take your leader line and do the same thing, but don't forget to wet the line before you cinch the knot. Then get you enough leader line off the spool about two arms lengths worth and clip it off the spool.
You will have a knot with a loop in the bottom of your braid.
You will have a knot with a loop on your leader line on one end and the end of the leader line where you clipped it off the spool on the other end.
Insert that loop of the leader line through the loop of the braid where you have the leader line simply going through the loop of the braid. Then take the end of the leader line and insert it through the loop of the leader line. Pull and as you do the two loops will meet and keep pulling until tight. You now have leader line attached to your braid. Sounds complicated but it's not. It's easier to show it then explain it I guess.
Then you add as many jigs as you want on the leader line just start dropping them onto the leader line. If your going to use 6 drop on 6 jigs. Tie the bottom jig on using the same knot you used for the braid and leader line. When it's tied on the jig is on a loop. Then I take the next jig and put it about 10 inches above my bottom jig and tie the same knot. I keep doing that all the way up the leader line. All the jigs are hanging from loops all the way up the leader line.
Remember to wet your line before cinching every single knot all the way up or you will burn the line.
It's crucial to wet the line.
It truly is easier to show someone in person than try to explain it via typing it on the forum.
Possibly I can find some videos on you tube later or someone else can and post them if they understand what I am trying to explain to Rods. It's very easy once you have seen it and done it a couple times.
I'm more than willing to help in any way that I can.
I don't have any idea on how to post pics, but possibly I can get with Dad and we will take some pics and post them sometime soon on here.
Feel free to call me Rods. 214-264-3232. If I don't answer leave a message and I will call you back.
I am on this forum because I love to learn from other fisherman and also share what I have learned over the years. I learn something new every time I get on here.
We will get you rigging up like me in no time at all if that's what you want to do.
I'm gonna help Lollygagger next time I see him on the water.
