Default Bankie Anchovie/Bait casting rig

okay this will be very long...sorry for those of you on dial up

First you will need a few items, 4/0 or 6/0 barbless gamis, 50# dacron, a number 5 barrel swivel and some colored stretchy thread..I use black but use whats available as long as it's not white






Now for the tying!!!!

Cut approx 18" of the dacron and tie a standard egg loop onto the shank of the hook


Next, attach the barrel swivel with a half hitch??? not sure of knot but look closely as it is viewable in the pic


Next I place the rig into and old exato knife/saw kit from my old RC plane making days to hold it secure while continuing to tie the rig.
place the line back through the hook eye


and once again through the barrel swivel to create 3 dacron lines.


Pull TIGHT and half hitch TIGHT at the barrel swivel


continue to pull and wrap the 3 lines,towards the hook eye one after the other very TIGHT.


ending in another half hitch pulled TIGHT and cut the dacron with a 1/2" tag line.


Now for the make your hand hurt part...start wrapping the entire length of dacron from hook eye to barrel swivel
with stretchy thread very TIGHT.


Be sure to wrap as tight as possible without breaking the stretchy thread and continue to wrap until you have a stiff and solid anchovie/bait rig with the usual double turn half hitches for securing stretchy thread.


Mainline goes to the same eye in the barrel swivel as the newly tied rig....the open eyed end is for your dropper approx 20" in length.

I use white stretchy thread to secure bait and with the black as a background color I can easily see how to not cut my bait rig.

Great setup, I just don't like those barbless hooks. They are shaped differently than the regular octopus hooks (the tip points back toward the shank as opposed to being parallel with it), and I seem to miss fish with them, and I rarely do with the regular hooks.

I didn't say they didn't work, I just said I miss more fish with them.

Don't make me start a picture war

The purpose of this rig is for "Distance casting", and being able to cast fragile anchovies, or sandshrimp 100+ yards .

Using the above method allows as close to natural presentation, possible thus the swivel in the shown location.

Peace Out.

Just adding thepics to better reference the info...Good luck!


Gators from the bank 101(pics)




In the next image you can see where I place the 6/0 gami piercing just below the body and exiting near the head or mouth area. notice the short stiff leader in relation to the sandshrimp..these are the standard size sandshrimp you would use for steelhead.



Next image is the top view of a wrapped sandshrimp ready to fish / cast.



Another view of the wrapped sandshrimp with stretchy thread from the underside...note the several TIGHT wraps made directly onto the stiff black leader under the sandshrimp prior to the tying on the sandshrimp. this is to secure the stretchy thread and sandshrimp from flying off with the enertia of the cast.


Finally anywhere you can stand along the columbia and cast, this will work!!! I have used it at Bonneville, all the way to Astoria and all points in between.
If your not fishing, your not catching!!!
Keep the bait FRESH!!!It MUST be kept cool on ice to prevent softening or spoiling with the lid closed and finally change the bait every 15 mins weather you think it needs it or not!! current rips and destroys bait quickly and removes scent just as fast, and sturgeon love FRESH BAIT!!!!.
Good luck out there!
