I was talking to my uncle who does a lot of deep sea fishing about possibly how to setup my trashfish lure better and he was telling me how the last time out a few of his buddies kept missing fish because the fish would only eat half the bait at a time and he didn't miss one because he always uses a "trap rig" for any lure or bait 6" or longer.

I've seen them done before, but never setup one up and was wondering if anyone ever uses them for their swim baits or not.

I hate missing fish because I'm really not that good and really don't get that many chances a day so to miss one just gets under my skin.

Here are a couple of pics of a trap rig I took from Hammer's site.

They tie theirs differently, but I found a video that shows the same setup, but using a double egg knot.

I have wonted to try this for a while now maybe this next outting will be my chance. I think waxon67 has done this already might be wrong but if I remember correctly he has.

sometimes when fishing live bait but i have used it several times on larger swim bait and couple of times for fishing the bay but IMO, its not worth it for fishing the bay. you can always drop down in the size of the swim bait and plus the swimer your bait is, the more likey all your gonna get is small fish. I have few 2" swim bait that use sometimes and I have never got a legal spottie from them.

Big Baits for Big FISH cheers

Plus I wonder does it effect the action of the bait. study

Hey n2deep, does this look familiar? Suspect
@jeffcpr, If you dont over size the trap hook, it does not affect the action of the swim bait.
