I have an idea on a new rig that may help in casting. My idea is to put the weight on the end of the leader. Then put a sleeve and crimp about 6 or 8 inches up from the weight. Now slide a hook on the wire. Just run the wire thru the eye of the hook. Now the swivel and then to the running line as usual. I figure that while casting the weight will be heading out first and the hook/bait won't be swinging around and it may result in more distance. More streamlined anyway.

What I would really like to come up with is an idea with a bigger bait and further distance. Suppose everyone is looking for this too.

Am I crazy or do you guys think this will work????

Sounds like a FF setup for the hook instead of the weight.

I've tried that and had a problem with helicoptering.

But give it a whirl, you can always adjust as needed.

well Steve my hope was that the weight would kinda keep the bait from spinning, also with the hook fastened on the main line with no leader I thought it would fly better. Gonna try it out and see....
