Default How To -- Deep Drop Rig

The other day my blog (and post on PFF) was about a recent deep drop trip. I was asked about the rigs we use for that so I made up a little video. You can check it out here: http://www.bluewaterhowto.com/?p=519 While you are at it, make sure you register for a shot at the free custom powder coated and etched Yetii cup! Good luck.

I went with Yankee Capts last spring on a dd trip. I made several rigs up with crimped lines and glow beads. We ran through them rather quickly (tangles). Then I went to knot tied 2 hook rigs like you'd fish for trigger (except longer and heavier line). I could see no difference in the catch. Also, Capt. Gregg recommended no lights. I tried with and without, no difference in the catch. I also watched my neighbors, same results.
