line thru swimbaits, DIY rigging

Recommended Posts

I have seen many videos on the Tube but no one mentions limits.

For example, what would be the minimum size swimbait to rig? 3 inch, 4 inch

Hollow body vs full body? What swimbaits would be better for this rig? 

Size of treble hook?

I was thinking of rigging the treble on top vs the bottom, thoughts? 

last question, how would this rigging mess up the action of the bait?

I always use a coffee stir straw inserted into the bait. For this way, solid body baits are best. I've done it on all size baits - treble size depends on the bait size. As long as the entry point is in the center of the nose, I have not seen any problems with bait action.

Here's something new designed by Bill Lowen for Lure Parts Online that I have ordered but not tried yet. I really like the concept. It's basically a weighted swimbait head with a screw lock keeper. The passage for the line-thru is molded into the head.

You place the treble hook on top and bottom of the bait?

In open water, the bottom. If I am swimming it over grass or some other cover, I rig it on the top to snag less.

There are no limits! Only your imagination.

 

You can get a hollow body and run a line through and stuff a bullet weight into belly.

I saw on tactical bassin that you could use one of those CPS screw pins and attach a treble hook to the bottom of the swimbait like that.  I have not tried it yet to see if it's possible.

I'm not sure if you were talking to me.  I've watched so many of their videos over the past few months I don't.  I'm assuming it was one that the topic was swimbaits but that's just a guess.  The idea seems logical I just don't know how it would work with the jigead too.

Yah I'm definitely gonna try that this year too. I'm thinking it may have been in the underspin video.

I'm gonna try that with a donkey rig (or double fluke rig)

I have only seen the video where he puts a screwlock into the nose of a fluke and then ran a hook through the front. But now that you mention it I think a small paddletail swimbait could be rigged the same way, just instead of putting a hook in the front of the screwlock, run some line through it and tie on a treble and hook it into the body. 

 

I actually may try this in the near future.
