We use the rigs for LOTS of fish including Whiting, Pompano, Red drum, Black Drum, Small Sharks, Lady fish, Bluefish and more.
We collaborated with Brian Demo (pronounced.. dee-mo) on this rig. Brian was tired of getting cut-off and wanted a beefed up double drop surf rig with a single float high and a single bead low. After lots of field testing we decided on the materials below.
"Demo's HD Double Drop Rig"
We tie these 45 inch rigs with:
40lb Mono #1/0 crane swivel #5 coastlock clip (2) 2/0 inline circle hooks 3/4 inch hand painted float Round mix/match bead
