    Here is a new live bait rig from Gamakatsu, looks like it could be great for blues and flats with big bait. You would probaly have to alter the rig for some bigger hooks and stouter line, but I think this would be great for shad, bluegil, chubs, small skipjacks, or anything else we use for bait. Check it out, I found it in "Sport Fishing" magazine it is a saltwater fishing mag.

    We got a bunch of views on this and nobody wants to add some feedback, maybe we could get one of our sponsors to get a few, and let us buy them and do some trials? Anyone who has experience with live bait could you give me some feedback on how you think this would work?

    I've seen those before and thought they would be excellent for trolling for Stripers, Hybrids and Sandies. I'm sure they would work well for drifting for Blue Cats also but they don't seem to be too picky in what they eat, live or dead whereas a Striper will hardly touch a dead bait.

    Brings up a good point that I have made before.Reading is the best way to learn things and I encourage everyone to read as much as possible.I get gift cards to Books-A -Million from my family and I read EVERY fishing magazine.Many GOOD ideas cross over easily such as this one.Many people don't like to read or find it an unpleasent chore so those of us that do should try and share what we find out as TA2D has done here.Rep points for the help.:smile2:

    Wow! I didn't think of it that way, but I like to think that there are ways that we have not tried, either because we don't know or we are scared to try(with some of the posts on here I find that hard to believe)
