i fished the canal for the first time this week. i’m a long island guy. found an interesting plug. the thing was tied with what I am guessing was 125 lb leader. Have to be honest I have lost all respect for you guys after seeing this rig… especially the knot. :eek:

Cedar plug and is used for trolling. They come pre rigged with the heavy line. Shockingly good for mahi, tuna, etc. Maybe washed up from elsewhere maybe??

That hook in comparison to a 4/0 VMC.

 

Split left on the nose, clip on the tie not the split. 

 

I love that knot.

I take it that placing the larger treble on the front did the trick and got the plug to dig a little deeper ?  I found that placing the tip of the rod in the water when you can will do the same thing, instead of working the plug with the rod up and you will feel the wiggle even more, enough to even change retrieve rates and make it slower or faster.

I would assume such a large set of hooks dulls the action. Whoever rigged it either had a specific application in mind or more likely wasn't aware of how such a drastic hardware change could impact the swim.

 

Good tips on swimming a plug deeper.
