Florida Rig

Recommended Posts

I call this a Florida rig. I thought of it while I was out fishing on the saltwater flats near Panama city Florida. I was using a popping bobber with a gulp shrimp and half the time it seems the Trout or redfish would hit the bobber as I popped it back to the boat. This is simple a double bladed tornado lure modified with a drop wire with either one or two eyes for just about any combination you want to put on the bottom. from jigs, shrimp, worm and many other things could be used. the lure stays on top while being retrieved with the jig or other bait clipped below trailing under water below the lure. It is a work in progress and has not been tested properly yet. It is meant for saltwater flats but might work for other fish by changing out the bottom bait.

 I don't mean to burst your bobble; but that type of setup is known as a dropper rig. On the positive side; it will work. Your topwater noise maker will call the fish and you will most likely do the catching on the dropper.

Also, if there is a very good chance for a double catch so make sure the test of the line is sufficent.

 

Does look good.
