    Today, third of July I went to my white perch hole to catch me some perch for the weekend. A Sabiki rig consist of 6 gold hooks with a feather or piece of plastic on it and is intented to be used for catching small bait fish. Well, today a 14.9 pound Buffalo Carp decided to latch on to my rig and my 8 pound test line on an ultra light rod and reel. It was quite a fight, but I took my time and let it run a couple times before I could net it. See attachment.

    we use these rigs by the discharge water at AEP sites. you might catch anything with them. I have sauger, hybrids and even a flat head once.

    most place you fish you can only use 3 hooks per rod, and it also is very cruel on the fish
