The flatfish rig is designed specifically to catch flatfish species. This rig works best for flounder and plaice but is also effective for catching small fish. The best part of this rig is that it has three snoods, which allows you to use three separate types of bait. This makes the rig more appealing to fish because it strengthens the scent.
If you choose, you can also add sequins or beads to each snood to make it more attractive to the fish you are targeting.
The flatfish rig is a good choice if you are fishing in an area with sandy beaches and casting out short distances. The downside is that the multiple hooks make it harder to cast out far and also make it more likely to get snagged.
