I make my own also some inline most not but by making my own i can use any combination of colors I want, caught a lot of flak from asking where to get crimp sleeves last fall (michigan sportsman on center $29.00 1000ct) :lol:
You can eliminate the crimp by threading main line thru bead three times, it will lock onto itself. And it is possible to adjust with a little manipulating., hence minimaler(?).Works for me,I like light line rigs, most of the commercial rigs have to much hardware for my liking. Call me a minimalist....
I was thinking of the attached inline design. May tie a bunch up and give it a go. Any suggestions for hooks size/brand, favorite bead colors, other suggestions welcome as well.
Any perch rig pic's anyone willing to share?
Get out of my honey hole Ralph. J/k, can't wait to get after them thereWhen they're biting good, I have no problem with the plain old "tangle free" rigs sold everywhere up here for $1.49. I only use 2 colors...pink beads and glow beads. I'll take a rig and cut it right in the middle between the 2 hooks, and tie those to 2 others to make 2-3 hook rigs. You never know when they're hungry, and if you miss one, you don't have to reel in with 3 hooks. More than likely you got a minnow left. More time in water is more fish..
Yes take a look at the size of the tag lines compared to the main line that is tied to the rap.. A heavier stiffer line, Won't tangle and hang off to the sides, Also make sure they hang on opposite sides of your main line.. Not both off to one side. I tie all mine 12" alsohow long of a leader are those? I tied some up just like this that were about 12" from the main line and they tangled all the time. any suggestions?
