Materials Needed:
Sluggos
7/0 Gamakatsu Octopus or Live Bait Hook (head hook)
5/0 Gamakatsu Octopus or Live Bait Hook (tail hook)
50 Pound Test Dacron Line
Sluggo Insert Weights
Super Glue or Zap Glue
Rigging Needle


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

STEP 1
Double back 36" of Dacron Line so you have an 18" length of double line
Cut Darcon - now you have a natural loop on one end and two single strands on the other end.
Tie an overhand knot (shoelace knot) on each end
Tie the loop end to the 5/0 tail hook with an improved clinch knot

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 2
Attach knotted end of Dacron line to the loop end of the rigging needle
Run rigging needle through the center of the Sluggo:
Insert the needle an inch before the center of the sluggo toward the tail end
Push needle through the center of the Sluggo, exiting out the head
Pull the Dacron through the Sluggo body and snug the shank of the 5/0 tail hook into the body of the bait
You should now have approx 8"-10" of doubled Dacron hanging out the head of the bait

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 3
Insert 7/0 hook halfway into the head of the Sluggo, leaving the shank exposed
Half Hitch the length of doubled Dacron line along the shank of the 7/0 head hook
knotting the end of the Dacron around the head of the hook, near the eye.
(You will have to do several half hitches)

Above is the inside view of the two hooks rigged together.
Notice that the Dacron is half-hitched along the shank and that nothing is through the eye of the hook.
Trim off the excess Dacron
Coat the half hitches and knot with the Zap glue
Push the head of the hook into the body of the Sluggo

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 4

After the glue dries, place and insert weight into the tail, parallel to the body of the bait

Next, insert one Sluggo weight into each side of the bait, again, parallel to the body

So you just make the hole and slip in the leader.

No, you have to crimp a small loop on the end of the wire and as you make your hole you will pull the dacron thru as well

Ok I got it. I bet the tip of a fly rod blank will work good . The rod tip is hollow and it could go right up the middle of it. What do you think :?:
