I’d like to show you this Catfish Rig. We use a slip sinker and tie an open ended knot I like to use a surgeons knot to make loop We put that onto our snap swivel This will be for any type of bigger catfish Handle almost any kind and bigger catfish Run that through the eye Just slip it down on there You have that part of the rig made We have our snells all made up here We will attach it to that I call this the hot dog rig We have our tool that I showed you how to make in another video Made from a coat hanger Run it through your hot dog Leave them out a few days to scent we just take that Snell right into the knotch like so.
we can just drop that and pull the hotdog right down through it pull hook right into it So it lays just like so. Take this loose from the tool Hook that into our Snap swivel and close it off There we’ve got a Great hot dog Catfish Rig They’re not going to get that hot dog of their Very easy and that lays down fairly close to it when you set the #fishing hook At issue is what’s going to happen here when you set the hook That hook its gonna just pull all the way through it Until it gets in the fish’s mouth “almost got myself the finger there” “laughing” It is kind of a glancing blow so anyway That said it is a great catfish rig In Summary” It makes a sliding sinker rig All you need is a one or two ounce sinker, a snap swivel and a good size hook.
You will have a great season fishing That’s what I recommend is you season these up for a few days Soak in salt and they’ll be ready to go So “Good Luck”
