No problem Zim, Roc showed me how last year. Best live bait rig I've ever seen. I tied a bunch of em a couple weeks ago in preparation for the season.
Sadlsorz, yep. Use a baitrunner type reel or conventional with the clicker on. As your live bait takes off just give it enough line to swim freely. When you get a hit, let it run for a few seconds before engaging the main drag and letting one of the circle hooks set neatly in the corner of the mouth. I don't have one, but Roc uses lever drag reels with this rig so that he can smoothly increase the drag from freespool to fighting position.
