Pitbull Tackle Bottom Fish Rig
The Pitbull Tackle Bottom Fish Rig is a pre-tied rockfish rig featuring a UV enhanced bucktail flies that glow spectacularly underwater. Designed to attract all varieties of rockfish with or without bait, the Pitbull Tackle Bottom Fish Rigs are the most advanced rigs we've come across to date. Constructed with high quality components beginning with the 60" - 50lb monofilament leader that uses single tie attachment for the dual flies extending from the main line. On the top side of the rig - where the main line is tied - Pitbull Tackle selected a high quality barrel swivel to reduce line twist that are common with the bottom fish rigs. Similarly, the end of the rig - which attaches to the sinker - is finished with a barrel swivel to safety snap. The addition of a safety snap is now the standard for the bottom fish rigs as many anglers want the flexibility to quickly change weight sizes without having to re-tie their entire setup.
The Pitbull Tackle Bottom Fish Rig utilizes super sharp 5/0 hooks dressed with UV enhanced soft plastic bodies from which buck tail and mylar strands extend. When reviewing the colors, you'll notice how detailed these attractors are. We are full impressed with the extra step taken by Pitbull Tackle to distinguish their rigs from others on the market today. Furthermore, all of the rigs possess UV light enhancement which causes them to glow underwater. When the trend of UV enhancement first began, we were a bit skeptical, but results don't lie - UV glow baits just catch more fish than those without the glow.
Fishing the Pitbull Tackle Bottom Fish rig is easy. Lower the rig to the depth where the school of fish are located and slowly raise and lower the rod tip to bring a lifelike action to the flies. Repeat this motion until you feel a pair of rockfish cling onto the rig. Once you have fish on, remember to wind the line up slowly to prevent losing them.
In California, anglers can have two hooks per line, and while you will see many different styles, the Pitbull Tackle Bottom Fishing Rig is definitely the most complete model we have ever seen. When using the rig, appropriate tackle considerations include a rod rated in the 15-40lb 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.
