Default Sabiki rigs

So I know that there are alot of ways to use a sabiki to catch bait. And there may be some of you that already know this. But I've told a few people about how I use them and everyone usually says they've never thought of it so I just figured I'd see what yall thought.

Well a few years back I was introduced to sabiki rigs to catch bait. Tried the original way jigging it with a weight but never had any luck and most the time the bait would just go down and swim off. That got me thinking...

I looked in my tackle box and saw I had a small (1/2oz) bucktail jig. Bucktails are supposed to look like small bait fish so I took off my weight and replaced it with the jig. We came up on the bait and I cast over them and reeled it through them. Boom full stringer of thread fins. Made a few more casts with the same result. Now every time I use a sabiki I use a bucktail on the back and load up the bait.

My theory is that the bait fish see that the bucktail is chasing the sabiki and that makes them instinctively want to get the bait before it does since it looks like another thread fin chasing bait. Works amazingly every time and we don't have to get too close and scare off the bait.

Just figured I'd share a tip with everyone. Hope this helps you catch more bait faster. I use a sabiki and a green and white Wahoo brand 1/2oz bucktail.

Thanks for reading! And share your ideas/opinions!
