  1. I'm not restricted to the number of hooks I can have, how would you rig it? Every bait has hooks and just downsize the weight of the head? Leader length?

  2. Here in New Mexico we can run 5 hooks. What weight heads do you recommend if we are going to be running 5 hooks?

  3. you mentioned a zodias 7'2" medium…. up to what weight a-rig and what rod action as just seems soft to toss even a light a-rig. thank you

  4. I've really put some time in on a rig and just can't seem to get bit I use the swing impact to swimming flukes I've tried jig heads I've tried weighted belly hooks I'm using 20 lb flouro on a 7 2 heavy rod with a 6 4 1 reel I throw it on points bluff walls and just can't get anything I'm not doing rod twiches or reel pops but still thought I would get bit what am I doing wrong

  5. I have had some luck with a double fluke rig here in northern NJ. Small finesse baits are most productive up here for me. Although in the spring I've had success with big swim baits like the Hud Gill. I imagine it must be big fun to get a double header on an A-rig. Unfortunately, as a shore fishermen, I have to be judicious about how much I carry and the A rig is just a bit unwieldy for me. I sure do drool at the clips of you guys sticking them with it though. As always thanks for the info.

  6. haha..i was lookin at the flash mob jr yesterday..almost bought it but didnt cuz i never used one..bought more swimbait stuff instead lol..after this video and some insight from you i think im gunna give it a shot..great video Tim as always..tight lines my man..
