TROPHY™ “SLAP SHOT” SLIDER RIGS

Single "Slap Shot" Double “Slap Shot”

TROPHY™ SINGLE “SLAP SHOT” BAIT RIG

The Single "Slap Shot" is designed for quickly setting the hook. It is especially good when fishing with your rod "spiked" in a rod holder. This is an ideal rig for Stripers, Redfish or Black Drum or any fish "grubbing and rooting" the bottom for food.

Made with dual leaders, the top leader is 24 inches (61 cm) long, 80 pound (36.3 kg) test Momoi® Hi-Catch Monofilament. A Fish Finder slide and beads is pre-mounted on the leader which is tied with Palomar knots to two 150 pound (68 kg) test Trophy™ Crane Barrel Swivels. The second (bottom) leader for the snelled hook uses 60 pound (27.2 kg) test Momoi® Hi-Catch Monofilament and is available in 6, 9 or 12 inch length (15.2cm, 22.9 cm, 30.5 cm). Six inch is best for Drum.

TROPHY™ DOUBLE “SLAP SHOT” BAIT RIG

The Double “Slap Shot” has one “high” hook attached via a Dropper Loop on the 30 inch long, 80 pound test Momoi® Hi-Catch Monofilament top leader which also includes a pre-mounted Fish Finder slide. 150 pound test Trophy™ Crane Barrel Swivels are attached to each end of the top leader with Palomar knots. The second (bottom) leader with the snelled second (2nd) hook uses 60 pound test Momoi® Hi-Catch Monofilament and is available in 6, 9 or 12 inch length (15.2cm, 22.9 cm, 30.5 cm). This design permits a fish to either hit on the top hook or take the bait from the bottom hook without feeling the lead weight.

RECOMMENDED HOOK SIZES & TYPES

Baitholder Gamakatsu Circle Gamakatus Inline Circle Owner SSW Mutu Special X Strong Circle Octopus

The type and size of the hook is dependent on the type of fishing and the species of fish you will be targeting.

Circle hooks are ideal when fishing from a boat or a fixed position such as the surf or a jetty. Do not immediately set the hook when a pickup is detected. Allow fish a short run before applying full pressure. In order for a circle hook to work properly the fish must pick up the bait and make a turn away. Circle hooks set themselves over fish's lip through the jaw (picture). Do not bury the hook's point and barb in your bait, it must be exposed (refer to Circle Hooks "Centripetal Acceleration" on StriperSurf.com for more information).

State of Maine State of Maine: Effective April 16, 2013 Fishing Regulations for Striped Bass and Bluefish stipulate that Inline Circle hooks must be used when fishing with bait in state waters. NO OTHER HOOK TYPES ARE ALLOWED. 2014 Maine Striped Bass Regulations Go to Website - 2014 Maine Marine Recreational Sportfishing Regulations Go to Website

Octopus and Baitholder hooks: The choice between these "J" type hooks is dependent on your bait. Baitholders are ideal for small baits such as clams, crabs, squid and worms. Octopus hooks are good for large chunks.

Hook Plating (Color): All hooks have NS Black plating. Occasionally, we may supply hooks with Red plating. There is really nothing special about red since it is the first color of the spectrum to disappear underwater. Anything you may read about red hooks being superior is just marketing hype.

Hook Sizes: Most people use smaller hooks than they should. The following are the basic recommended sizes for Striped Bass, Bluefish, Black or Red Drum.
