Default Catching Ly's

Had a question I have been out on the pier and have noticed a few folks using a certain rig to catch bait but cant fugure out what its called or where to get them. It looks almost like a ribbon in the center of some clear netting and they drop it down and pull up Ly's all day. I am very curious about this rig and want to know if someone can tell me how to make one or where to buy one. Thanks in advance

We used to make them as kids for pier fishing, #7 stainless leader and small crimps, make one, run wire through next and make a chain, tie a piece of red or black ribbon to top or put it through a snap run it down half through the center ring and secure at the bottom with the weight. They used to work great, at this day and age have no clue as to legality.

I think there still legal in Alabama....any bait store should have them over there...I was in a plant that use a similar nylon mesh that I got a bunch of(they just throw it away), but need to get to gulf shores to use it...:doh...if they haven't banned it over there as a gill net...:banghead

For whatever reason, they are illegal in Florida. I do make my own out of 1 inch cast net mesh. Some officers don't say much about using them but you never know when one might write a ticket for using one.

Thanks for all the help and the responses guy's really do appreciate it. Since they are illegal out here doubt I will be using one but I thought it was a great little rig and it seemed to pull out bait instantly which would be great while I'm trying to pull bait out quickly to throw on some tarpon.
