Wondering what the next big thing in fishing from overseas will be? Looking for a new technique to add to your bag of tricks? Check out this video on FREE RIGGING from MLF Pro Takayuki Koike to learn the basics of this new technique that is growing in popularity.

What are your ideas on how to apply this in Texas?

I seen another japanese angler mention this on a BASS U podcast iirc. Love me some flat bottom worms on a jika rig....but im not sure I like that thin wire from the drop shot weight running up and down my line....im sure can be no issue, but I see potential for micronicks and breaking off in a situation that you dont wanna be broken off at (on a biggen).

Get to C-Rigging the good ol' american way!!! flag

It’s interesting, I would have thought that it would be a snagging mofo. I’ll give it a try and see how quickly I can manage to break one off.

so basically does nothing different from a texas rig except higher change of twisting around your line.

Fish become acclimated to feeling resistance. This is a resistance FREE system that allows the fish to pick up the worm and run with it.
- No resistance from the weight system.
- No resistance from the fisherman, if he is fishing with a slack line.

Mr. Koike is definitely on to something and it is worth the try to up your catch ratio.

Lol, I’m just going to try it because they said it was more resistant to snagging in brush piles. I don’t see how it possibly could be though.

Kind of like a c-rig.

I think he said no brush pile. You might wanna watch it again. It's nothing more than a light weight texas rig with a knot protector. The weight on a texas rig moves up and down the line just like that drop shot sinker and I would use a bobber stop at the knot and not that piece of rubber which moves up and down the line which creates more resistance.

Maybe the drop shot weight moves easier than the light bullet weight is all I can guess why it would work better.

Dang it, watched it twice again and it is a bit confusing. Says use “20lb line for brush pile & big fish“, then says “no good in brush pile”; but then says “sinker goes into brush pile and bait stays above”. Maybe Mr. Rheem can clarify.


Edit: watched it again. I think he said if the fish are inside the pile, it’s no good, because only the sinker is inside the pile.

Dang the cat’s out of the bag and more and more info is coming out. I’ll be honest, this rig is so good, and I get so many more bites on it, I may never throw a Texas rig again. The best baits I’ve used/ found are Deps Bull Flat, Geecrack Bellows Gill, and Zoom Z-Craw Jr. There’s a video floating around YouTube of a Japanese guy catching a tank on it on Fork around timber. Geecrack guy I think

I think it will be less likely to snag because you are using a pencil weight that won't wedge in a limb. My question is where do you get those rubber stoppers or could you substitute a bead?
