The Pacific Catch Squid Rigs are pre-tied double squid rigs designed to appeal to rock and ling cod. Going rockfishing? The double squid rigs from Pacific Catch are the way to go for all types of rockfishing. These rigs are comprised of a 48" leader of 80lb test from which dual soft plastic squids are connected approximately 12" apart. The top of the leader ties to a high quality barrel swivel and the end, used for sinker connection, is finished off with a barrel swivel/interlock snap connection. Using the squids above the heavy weight will catch the interest of bottom fish as the angler lifts and drops the rig until they strike. The lures are double rigged on fairly heavy line in a Rock Cod size 3.5" and Ling Cod 4.5" version. The soft plastic squids are excellent quality, with brilliant colors that appeal to any squid eating bottom fish. Anglers can add scent to the inside of the squids to better appeal to the Ling Cod that are thought to have poor sight and rely heavily upon their scent to feed.
In California, anglers can have two hooks per line, and while you will see many different styles, the Pacific Catch Squid Rig is one of the most commonly used. When using the rig, appropriate tackle considerations include a rod rated in the 20-60lb range. Braided line is an excellent choice for the main line as the fish will only come into contact with the leader. We suggest using torpedo style sinkers ranging from 5oz - 12oz depending on water depth.
We offer the Pacific Catch Squid Rig in two sizes: 3.5" Rock Cod or 4.5" Ling Cod.
