Default Sabiki rigs

This may sound like a stupid question to some, but in the spring I want to concentrate on catching my own bait with different methods. I hear a lot about sabiki rigs but I am not sure how exactly they are fished and what types of bait they actually work for. Could someone help?

Fished easy, just jig it, up N down. Depending on depth, the weight you should use varies. I use em mainly for mackerel and herring/alewives. Weird thing is, the Herring are filter feeders from what I've learned, yet they still hang themselves on a sabiki lol, even in 3 feet of water. Drop it down to where the bait is, then jig it up with a firm twitch, let it fall, repeat.

Pictures arent viewable unless signed in when uploaded to the server that way.
Open your eyes.

But then again in order to post you must be signed in. Perhaps your on a slow dialup and they need time to load?

I had better luck catching scup last year using rigs I got at Wal-Mart called Mackeral rigs. Very similar to a Sibiki, but with slightly larger flies/hooks. Tipped em with a little piece of squid or a couple inches of sea worm. 5-1 vs. sibiki without a chum slick. FWIW.
