    Fished everyday last week about 8 hours a day with not one fish. They would bump it every now and again but would not run with it. I think I will try the hair rig. I have never used a hair rig. When you tie it how long do you make the leader and if you don't have a bait needle how do you go about putting the bait on.

    God bless

    The length of it depends on how big of a bait and hook you're using, but to get the bait on the hair without a baiting needle, all you need to do is straighten a long shank, thin wire hook. Hope this helps.

    What i should have said is how long of leader from the hook to the weight.
    The way I fish now I put on a weight a 3 way and 2 hooks the leaders are 3" long then I pack the bait around the weight. Can I fish a hair rig the same way.
    And thanks for the info on how to bait the hair rig with out a needle.

    Put a 5 oz. about 6 in. from the hook and make sure it wont move. Youll have a hair and bolt rig. Make sure you have your rod anchored good.:wink:
