Default Sabiki Setup

Been looking around, researching sabiki rig setups. Having so little room and not wanting to dedicate a rod strictly to this, I think I'm going to go with the Pool Foam method. There is a youtube video by 30milesout on a sabiki hand line. It looked pretty good and simple, but I have questions you guys may be able to help with. I bought the sabiki rigs, so all I have to do is put the line to attach it to on (30lb mono). Here are my questions:


1. How much of the mono do I need?


2. Can I attach the mono directly to the sabiki or do I need a leader?


3. If I need a leader, what should I use?


4. Should I attach all this together by using swivels or knots?


Please help!

Its an interesting idea. Id be concerned about a Spanish hitting it and my hand being attached to the line.

Sounds like a pain to me, I'd just get a sabiki stick and be done with it. Some of them can get pretty compact where you may just be able to throw it in a compartment. Too many times catching bait, you are trying to toss it out towards something - a bouy, a rig, etc - gonna be hard to do that with a pool noodle.

Just use your spinning reel. Open the package, tie it on, and catch bait. Bring a few extras. They get cut off, tangled, and messed up mighty quick.

I always use the same rod I have for spanish/bobo/mahi to make bait before we head out. I just use a new sabiki every time, they're cheap enough.

Consider sabikis disposable, you do not need leaders, they have a swivel at the top.
I cut my sabikis down to three hooks, more than that just tangles and snags in my yak. I use a 12 inch wood dowell, wrap fishing line around it and tie off the sabiki. Then, get some pool noodle, cut a slit lengthwise, and slip it around the dowell. It will hold the line, the hooks you bury in the noodle. That way I dont have to have an extra rod, but you arent just holding a piece of fishing line.

Great Salt Lines. So how much line should I put on my dowel? Yards??

enough to get you to the bottom most places you fish. I usually catch bait past the second bar where 20 ft is fine, but you may just want to put 100ft on there in case you are on deeper structure that holds bait. Extra line wrapped around the dowell doesn't add much bulk.

As others said, they are so cheap and a pain to mess with, it is easy to treat as disposable.

But, if you get a sabiki stick you will love it. I keep mine ready to drop in bait balls I ride over and see on the FF. It is a baitmaster....sometimes the only rod catching fish for me :-) Get it, you won't regret it.
