Sabiki rigs can be utilized to catch bait proper from the surf. For these not conversant in them, they’re a particular rig with six little jig flies hooked up. You possibly can by them prepared made at your favourite deal with store with a #four or #6 hook for the surf. The hooks are very small and sharp however good for bait fish. It is a good way to catch the bait you want for surf fishing.
Usually these rigs are used from the pier or a ship. Anglers decrease them over the facet and jig them up and all the way down to catch their bait. They’re often neglected as a technique to catch bait from the surf. Casting sabikis into the surf zone solely takes somewhat little bit of observe to get good outcomes.
The rig itself may be very mild, so it wants a sinker hooked up as a way to forged it. You’ll most likely need one thing between 1 ounce and three ounces. The rigs often include a clip on the underside to connect a sinker. Use a casting sinker which has a tear drop form and a brass loop to connect it with. These are clean sinkers that may slide alongside the underside as you’re employed the rig.
A smaller rod & reel is extra fitted to this mild setup. You forged the sabiki’s proper into the breakers and jig it in from there. Hold your rod excessive as you jig and reel them in. This retains the angle of your line extra vertical within the water column. Generally you solely get one and generally you may get two or three bait fish on a forged.
My favourite technique is to make use of little items of Fishbites Bag O’ Worms to tip the hooks with. Bag O’ Worms work so effectively as a result of they’re scented with a fish attractant. They’re very sturdy and can final for a number of casts. They entice all kinds of saltwater species. Mullet, pin fish, croaker, Spanish mackerel, pompano, spot, sardines, bluefish, and perch all like them.
With somewhat work you’ll be able to often catch sufficient during your day surf fishing. Convey alongside a bait bucket with an aerator and you will be good to go.
