The world’s tiniest fish, the Stout Infant, is about a quarter-of-an-inch long. You don’t need 10 lb test line to catch one of those.  

Pan Fish & Lunker Still Fish Rig

May 1, 2013 | Categories: Fishing Tips

When still-fishing for crappie, perch, bluegill (or just about any small fish) you can make your own two hook rig in a jiffy. Use 10 to 15 pound monofiliment line and place snelled hooks about 12 inches apart with your sinker 12 inches below the bottom hook. Tie a loop knot at the bottom for changing your Dipsey or Snap-Loc® quickly. Note: If you use the old Dipsey add a snap swivel.

For lunkers in fresh and salt water you can use the same rig with heavier line and Snap-Locs®, bigger hooks on heavier snells and a greater separation — 18 inches seems effective.
