Thread: uptiding for cod.rigs

Can someone please tell me the advantage of using 2 squids when I am uptiding for cod?
It dont put off doggies or whiting -they just whittle away.
A small bait hooks the fish cleanly & efficently -if its a lsd or whiting I can get it in ,unhook & get the bait out again quickly .
Similary ,I've tried fixed paternoster rigs ,didnt give good bite indication from small (nuisance) fish and didnt seem a very effective hooker. What advantage over a simple running lead does this set-up offer ?
The only advantage I can think of using a pennel is that it makes a nice livebait rig if a whiting hooks itself ???
I,ve never found using 1 hook results in casting the squid off & I dont whip on neither .

Caught this one on the top hook 1/0 uptiding with a big bait...............
Worked long linning and we used cut cuttle the size of a finger nail on 4/0,
The bigger ones down our way do seem to come to the very big baits.

I use a leader , but more for getting the fish in the boat than casting, anyone who cant lob out a bait shouldnt be fishing that way.
Rigs- I use a swivel as a lead carrier running up the leader, bead swivel then 3-5 ft of 30lb amnesia and a 4/0 viking tied on the end , thats the important bit.
I think that all the other booms tubes boobys rattles gizmos just add drag to your rig, you want to be nailed hard on the bottom, thats where they feed.
half a squid catches as well as any round these parts, but we dont tend to get big fish, but better numbers of 3-4lb fish.
I tend to find that although we call it uptiding the better fish come from down the tide, cast off at 45 degrees from the stern.

If that was deliberate it's priceless. May I use it please?
