The fish finder rig is easy to create and works well for catching a variety of fish, such as sea trout, bluefish, red drum, flounder, striped bass, and snook. To create this rig, simply take a hook and attach it to a leader. Once that is completed, tie the other end of the leader to a barrel swivel. Then, place a bead and a sliding plastic lock snap on the main line above the barrel swivel. Finally, add a pyramid sinker to the lock snap.
The type of hooks, line, and weight you choose isn’t the most important part of the fish finder rig. The main thing is that the rig can be cast out over a long distance. It should also be able to sit on the bottom without too much movement. The pyramid sinker on the front side of the Fish Finder works to keep the bait from moving too much in the current once it lands on the bottom.
It is the pyramid sinker that is the secret to the success of this rig. The pyramid weight allows the leader to easily move around so the bait floats in the current. This makes the bait appear as if it is alive, helping it to attract more fish.
