Mainline tied to a 3-way swivel then tie approx 3ft of 10-12lb mono to to the opposite end of the 3-way. Clip swivel tied to the end of that leader then attach the eel.
A 1 or 2oz plain lead is then attached to the side swivel on the three way by means of a split ring.
Bass,pollock and mackerel are favourite but bass sometimes shy away from the lead.
Hope this helps bud,
I purchased some earlier this year, but haven't really tested them properly yet. I have had one fish on them (pollack) and that took on the drop. Up to now I have been fishing them similar to how Terry describes, but the other week I was playing about rigging them 'Texas Style' (google it for an explanation). I do think that (or a small gumball jighead) gives them a great action and it is this method that I am going to explore further with them.
My anticipated targets are pollack and mackerel.
I reckon they would also do well on a fly rod - especially the smaller 4 inch versions.
What sort of retreive speed is best for shads, worms etc when fished off the beach?
I also agree that in the right weather a carp rod and 1 to 2 oz of lead to a baited trace gives far better sport than a traditional beach outfit can provide.
