I like spreaders, but sliders work too.
Making the prawn spin is easier if you use a wire instead of trying to get the hooks correct. See any of the previous post about prawn spinners to see the wire. I've never seen an "Eric" come with a wire, but I've never looked at them to closely either.
If you get a chance, have someone show you how to make your own spinners and save some bucks. Making a prawn spinner is as easy as it gets! :grin:
I have found the Eric's rigs to be cheaper (buy on sale) than buying the components individually. I re-rig them on my own leader and change the hooks out but use the beads and spinner/clevis. With the right prawns and scent (hint, hint) we have outfished the guys in boats either side using straight prawns or trimed or wired-to-spin.
Lots of people like spreaders until the lead fouls in the net and the springer comes tight and pops the leader or comes unbuttoned. Then they like sliding rigs better!
Thanks to those who posted for the help.
Crabbait: Your hint raises more questions beyond my original.....Uhmmmm? Don't suppose you care to share?
Maybe get me in the ballpark?
