Dip bait / Punch bait / Blood bait... No one make's a BETTER rig than Looper rig .....Hands down nobody has a dip bait rig that will hold as much bait or hold bait for as long as the LOOPER RIG does !!!!
I know that you have already heard it but I was one of the earlier testers of the Looper rigs and have found that the consistancy of your bait makes all the difference in the world of which one you want to use next up I would like to say they actually are the best "stink bait" rigs on the market.
just got my looper rigs, haven't tried them yet, but I agree they look like the best rig out there. Now if I have a little time to use them I will post the results..oh yeah, I plan on using them w/secret 7 also that I just got
From all the hype about looper rigs, I would say that's the way to go. I used the Cat-Tracker Tubie worms in different colors with great results. The only setback is you have to rebait every 15 to 30 minutes depending on the water current. Also the trick to using the worms is making sure that the worm is completely dry when using the dip-bait. Make sure to dip the worm in the water before casting to, because this helps lock the bait on to the worm.
I'm going to buy some of these looper rigs and check them out for myself. Sounds like a sure winner to me!!:big_smile::big_smile:
if you want a way to make dip bait worms here are the steps
1: get your supplies (medical tubing, treble hooks depending on size of fish you usually catch, line)
2:cut little circles in the tubing not too many but not too less
3:tye a 6 inch leader to the hook and slide it thru your worm and dip in some dip bait and your set.
but a 3 foot peice of tubing and a pack of treble hooks cost less than buying dip worms every so often
I think it might vary with the situation. I use Loopers when fishing in current, but normally fish a lake with no current and don't have a problem keeping bait on my dip worm. In fact I catch weeds so often that need to be cleaned off the rig that I am rebaiting quite a bit. It has been said, but it is very important that the dip worm is dry when rebaiting, I use toilet paper to clean up and dry the worm. Lately I have been using Catfish Dynamite worms by Strike King, but found that most of the brands work fairly well for me as long as they are red, which I have found works better than other colors in this particular lake. Also, I remove the treble hook and very short leader from the dip worm and tie on a 4/0 Gamakatsu octopus circle hook, plus with a longer leader since for this lake I don't have to use a slip sinker.
With the choice of dip bait, you'll have to find what works in your location, and moving to another lake or river may require trying different things. I have tried several and in my lake Sonny's Original outperforms Sonny's Blood side by side. In a nearby lake they won't touch Sonny's. I will have to try the Secret 7, but it would have to do better than great (like Sonny's does in my particular lake), which is a tall order to fill. It gets good recommendations here, like Danny King's used to on this site.
Try several kinds of dip worms too, and colors, and find what suits your situation. Looper rigs are definately among the best.
I want to thank you all for the good hype on the rigs, Also just wanted to say DUE TO THE ICE STROM I have been without power for a week now just got back power and on line today, so needless to say all orders will be delaid a week at least.
