Beach Fishing Rigs: Don’t waste your money
Hey guys, today, I’m going to show you guys how to tie my favorite, go-to fishing rig for beach fishing. It’s really simple, and really effective, so stick around for more. *grunting* Whew! Alright, I can do this. Guys, I hurt my knee really badly, and I’m not kidding, I’m probably going to be out of commission for another two weeks. I’ve been sitting in bed for 7 days so far, I haven’t been able to even take a step yet. He is not very happy about this. *sigh* I feel bad for you, I’m sorry.
Tell them what happened. Aw, this is kind of embarrassing. Uh, so we went to… a trampoline park. That’s enough said.
That’s basically all I need to say.
Enough said. That’s all I need to say. We went to a trampoline park with, um, Brendon’s little cousins, Danny Boy, who’s been in a few episodes and his two brothers, and, uh, I saw this whole thing happen. Like, Brendon just lost control of his very high bounces and just got his leg caught in between the little thing and then he was on the ground. I heard my leg pop and I was like “nngghh I’m not fishing for probably three weeks now.”
It was really scary. Yeah, it was really scary for me because I’ve been dating you for like, three years and I’ve literally never seen you in pain. Like, never. I’ve never seen you in pain. Yeah, ’cause I don’t usually get hurt.
So it was really scary.
I’m pretty careful. So, we told you guys on Facebook, and you guys responded with some videos that we should try, since I’m bed-ridden now, you guys have suggested some really cool ideas that we’d like to try, so today I’m going to be showing you guys how to tie my favorite beach fishing rig, this rig is really easy to tie, um, it works really well, and there’s not much to it, it’s really simple. Let’s get on it. Okay. So what is this, uh, beach fishing rig good for, Brendon? This beach fishing rig is really good for, you know, sitting on the beach with a tube and your surf rod, casting it out, sitting and waiting for a fish to take it. That’s the kind of fishing that we’re talking about today. So, here are the materials that you’ll need: two beads, a swivel, one of these rigs for sliding sinkers, and I’ll include a link below, I’m not sure what they’re called, but there’s a– there’s many different kinds of these. A sinker, a hook, and fluorocarbon leader. I would usually tie this with fluorocarbon but for today’s demonstration purposes I’m going to be using this thick line, m’kay? This thick, neon line so you guys can see what I’m doing. So now, this rig ties straight on to your braid, or whatever line you’re using. This is 30 lb. Power Pro braid, and uh, this is my favorite kind of braid to use, it’s been very reliable to me, and it’s a good price. Let me show you how I tie it now. Okay, first, what you’re gonna do is put you’re sliding sinker through… your main line, okay? See? There you go. See, see how this slides? You see how this slides?
Mhmm. Okay. Now, we’re going to put a bead through it. And now, this bead you don’t need it, but this is so that the weight of the sinker won’t be messing up the knot that we’re about to tie. Does that make sense, everybody? There we go. Cut the loose end off… Alright, so now we’ve got half the rig set up. Now, we’re just gonna take probably around a foot to three feet, one to three feet of leader line, and we’re gonna use this colorful line just as an example. This isn’t what I would actually use, just so you can see it. So now, I’m going to tie onto the other end of the swivel now. And then… the final step is just tie the hook on with whatever kind of knot you want to tie. What knot are you choosing? I don’t know what it’s called… I’m– I’m actually terrible with names. I know how to do it, I don’t know what it’s called. After we tie that, we go back to our sliding sinker, and we attach our sinker to it. So now, the sinker is on. And it slides. When you cast this rig out, since this is a sliding sinker, look what happens. You cast it out, it sinks to the bottom, you’ve got bait on this line, right? Now, a fish comes and takes it. Has no idea it’s a hook on it, right? It’s– it’s able to slide and continue to swim without without noticing or feeling any pressure. That’s why it’s so deadly, is because it’s not like, it’s directly to a line and the second the feel tension, they’ll drop it. This is a rig, where it can take it for 20 – 30 yards and have no idea that it has a hook in its mouth. You can imagine how many times this thing will bang into this knot, right? That will eventually ruin your knot. That could possibly cost you a really big fish and you don’t want that to happen, so my solution to it is put a little bead. This little bead will save you from losing a big fish. Alright, I have this swivel on here, can you guys see the swivel?
Yes. We use this swivel so– because there’s currents under the water, spinning this bait around, moving it around, you don’t want your line to get all twisted up, have you guys experienced that before? Where you bring your rig back and everything is all twisted up? That’s because under water, your line is spinning around like this and getting twisted. You see how it gets twisted when it spins? This swivel prevents that from happening. Isn’t that cool? Ohhh… My knee hurts. It’s like, it’s just I’m sitting there and it’s just pulsing. Yeah, we’re gonna have to get you elevated again. We’re doing what’s called, “R.I.C.E.” Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation, and, uh, hopefully that will help you. We’re going to California in like, 4 weeks, and we’re planning on doing some fishing there, so hopefully, Brendon will be better by then and we can do some fishing, but if you are in California, or you’ve fished in California and you have any recommendations for us we’d love to hear them in the comments below. um, I’m really excited about that trip. Yes, what we’re trying to do there is we’re trying to do some beach fishing, some pier fishing, um, and experience what it’s like to fish in California.
Yeah, we’ll be in Los Angeles and then San Diego, and we’ll be in that area for like, 3 week or something, so, yeah.
Comment below some suggestions that you want to see or some places that we should try doing, um, if you are living in California and do this on the reg The reg…
Comment that below, help us out, give us some insight! Yeah! We’re looking forward to it. Thank you guys for sharing, we, on our part, will continue sharing as long as you guys keep telling us it’s helpful. Or, or, or join us on Facebook! We’ve just been getting so many people joining recently Yeah, it’s been really cool.
