What Rigs and Leads for the Uptiding Comp

Discussion in 'Sea Fishing Forum - Shore, Boat & Kayak Fishing' started by Uata the Watcher, Nov 7, 2013.

  1. The title sez it all

    I would be thinking 2x6/0 hooks on a Pennel and maybe a 6oz weight

    Other suggestions ?

    simple as possible for me 6 oz breakaway lead, as for rig couldn't be simpler attach snap ling to the end of your main line and use this to attach your lead, then off the same snap link attach your hooklength with another snaplink.

    When casting hang the hook off one of the lead wires to stop tangles.

    I'd just add that a long snood around 4 or 5 feet long seems to work best ;)

    Pully penal rig for me every time if you get a double figure fish they hug the bottom until under the boat also a 6/7oz grip lead. The sharpest hooks you can find in the shop size 6/0 and I alway use a rotten bottom last year I could of lost my pb uptiding cod of 14lb if I had not used one.

    That's interesting Chris! I was thinking about using a pulley rig but everyone seems to use a long snood clipped to the lead link. I had so many dropped bites - as did everyone else - that I wondered if the fish were feeling the resistance of the lead and dropping the bait (if they didn't hook themselves)?
    With a pulley rig the fish would be able to take a bit of line before feeling the resistance and maybe my hookup rate would improve - what do you think?
    What length of hook snood do you use?
