I am looking more closely and see you got small plastic baits on some

Real nice work Carl I 'd like to know the knots used and #test .Also, I would like to know the idea  behind the hook setups. Are you only targeting Walleyes with these ?Crawlers ?Minnows?

Here's a cool book from 1976 Carl .Lots of neat Fresh and Salt water rig concepts .Discusses Equipment, Rigs, a large variety of Baits,Techniques .All in 4 chapters and 159 pages.

What baits you planning to use . I notice lots of those hooks are close together so those aren't tandems  meant for two fish . I guess they're intended to hook crawlers or live baits and use a type of trailer ?Is that the idea Carl ?

JOHN;; HERE;S A FEW RIGS I TIED UP TODAY

Comment by John Sheehan on June 29, 2016 at 7:15am

These two Walleye hit floating Rapalas just under the surface at a steady slow retrieve .Slip floated jig /half crawler got ignored .Fishing from shore. Overcast evening about 4-5 pm .
