Bait Clip from a Paper Clip

Great for quick weight changes

In a pinch.......Bait clip from 20 gauge SS Wire from Harbor Freight....Good for structure where your weight gets snagged a LOT.......You WILL lose the weight but should get the rest of the rig back and could save you a fish.

Going to Try a Home Made Tokyo Rig next.......... Maybe Tomorrow

Sorry for the delay......I am looking for my offset worm hooks to complete the prototype......STAY TUNED DSCN3067.jpg DSCN3070.jpg DSCN3070a.jpg

The thing about the Tokyo Rig is the level of customization possible......different weights and weight shapes.....different lengths of sinker wire......

Underwater videos of the rig in use intrigued me so I thought I would give it a try........Should be great for rocky jetties and along piers.....

Home Made Pier Gaff..........NOT FOR FISH..........From MIG Wire and Sheet Lead.......7.5oz........I get a lot of free crab rings with gaffs like this........I used to make MUCH HEAVIER Pier Gaffs using REBAR......But if you snagged them you were never getting them back......With these......If you can't pull it free it wasn't meant to be
