Hi Aldge,,,
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,

Terry F. :)

No probs mate...the wildeyes are the dogs danglies but as for the crabs....never used em...didn`t fancy the look of em.

Anyone else tried the crabs.

(There you go ....I`ve opened the door for all the crab jokes again) ;)

They sure do look the dog wotsits don't they !!!

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.

I like the sound of jigging them Manx...never gave it any thought before.
Definately going to give that a try and let you know.
Thanks bud.

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.
