How to make a bottom fishing rig for offshore fishing

Fish taste better when you catch them on your own rig

Learn how to make a bottom fishing rig with this short video.  Save yourself some money, and make your own bottom rigs.  It’s easy, quick, and everyone knows it’s more fun to catch fish on your own stuff. 

Our how-to covers the steps to make your dropper loops, how to position the hooks, and other basics of bottom rig making.  The process is pretty simple.  You should be able to knock out all the bottom rigs you could ever need for a day of fishing in a couple hours.  Even better, once you get the hang of it, if you do fall short offshore you’ll always be able to whip some up.  It’s important to use good materials, don’t go for some bobo leader to save a few bucks.  Hooks are equally important.  You want to start with a name brand hook, most anglers around here use Mustad Demon Circle Hooks on their bottom rigs.  The circle hook is required in a lot of places when bottom fishing with bait.  This style of bottom fishing rig works great for catching Triggers, Beeliners, Black Bass, Grouper and other great tasting fish.

All of the materials you need are available here at The Tackle Room.  Leader, hooks, sinkers and more are in stock, with fast shipping.  If you find yourself hung up on a step, or if you have other questions, give us a shout.  You can reach us via phone, email or live chat.  We are here to help.
