An extremely flexible rig that is perfect for Swordfish squids.
A double hook rig with spliced hollow core Dyneema rated at 890lb test. The main feature of the rig is how flexible a bait will remain after rigging, especially squids. No heavy mono inside the squid which stiffens it.
The front hook is permanently spliced to the Dyneema while the rear hook is attached with a spliced loop. The rear hook can be changed simply by removing the loop thru the eye of the hook and threading the loop thru the eye of the new hook. Both splices are 100% and will not fail.
By removing the rear hook before rigging the squid, a standard open eye needle can be used to pull the Dyneema loop thru the bait. Once the loop is exposed the hook can be attached and set in the bait.
NOTE: In all cases a welded eye hook for both front and rear should be used. The Dyneema can and will get caught in the slight gap in the non-welded ring eye hook. This situation can have an adverse effect on the Dyneema and weaken the splice.
Hooks on these rigs are Mustad 7731 front and Mustad 7699 offset rear. From eye to eye the length is between 6 and 7".Hook Sets rigged with mono are 10ft of 300lb test Momoi with chafe tube and bead stop.
Some strong hooks with welded eyes:
Mustad 769DT, 7698B and 7731
