Baiting Hooks - Whole Pilchards with Ganged Hooks
Using a ganged rig is ideal for surf fishing. A flight of ganged hooks helps support the pilchard for the entire length of its body, and the likelihood of the bait falling apart during a cast is minimised.
This is particularly handy in situations where a pilchard is cast and retrieved regularly for the likes of salmon or snook from the rocks.
Lay the flight of hooks along the pilchard so that the top hook is level with the fish's eye.
Mark (with a thumbnail) the approximate position of the bottom hook.
Insert the hooks, ensuring that the bait lays flat.
