The Guntersville Rig (Free Swinging Texas Rig) ?

Recommended Posts

Here's a different approach to a Texas Rig (I have not tried it) called : "The Guntersville Rig"  - An EWG hook , approx. #5 size split ring , a bullet weight and a bobber stop : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QMhIfKJUow ... *Any one with experience at such a rig ? ... Are hook sets a concern (as one poster noted ?) ... A great , frugal idea - or an awful one ? ... You tell me .

I think it's a great, frugal idea.  I'll probably give it a try in the near future and report back with what I think.

I'm typically dragging a swinging football head through rocks. Switching to a bullet weight would result in a lot more hang ups.

 

I don't really see the benefit to a free swinging bait in any situation when I fish a T rig? I don't drag them often, usually pitching them in or around cover where I want the sinker and bait to stay as close together as possible.

Bluebasser86 : I'm trying to rationalize this (as well as my previous "Free Rig" post) . I get the Tokyo Rig and understand the potential improved hook ups ... With the Free Rig  , I have the materials to try it (when nothing else is working) but due to rocky areas I fish like you - I'm afraid the Guntersville rig would hang up too much with a bullet weight . *Besides , when ever I use a Biffle Bug & Biffle Swing Jig Head set up I smile thinking about Tommy Biffle (even if bites are few...)
