ahaha well i havent caught yet on it. modified the rig a bit etended the trace nearly double the length so the grapnel does not annoy the bait/ray and made hooks 7/0 gamas circle.

I woulda thought an old star sinker woulda done the job unless you're fishing somewhere that theres a strong current or waves? Where do you usually fish mate?

Ray rig

Tue, 2010-05-11 18:33

Mate a heads up if u going to be targeting rays , get rid of your steel wire grapnel and rather use the weed eater ones . or even better just use a normal tear drop or cone sinker . 

The reason why , is that rays sit on the bait before they pick it up - during this process the ray is often jabbed by the grapnell and is spooked  .  The use of the skirt is good as it creates some movement / flash , iv had a lot of success with the bright lumo pink ones .  The 550m is enough line to land "most" ray's , iv got 700m on mine and that hasn't been enough on a few occasions . 

Good luck mate

pull

Wed, 2010-05-12 17:19

pull the steel out and replace it with the mono they use in weed eater's - 2.5mm is good , but keep it short = 3-4cm is plenty.  U might have to make the holes a little bigger , once u'v replaced the steel just use a punch and pinch the lead against the mono.

Wed, 2010-05-19 19:48

If your after rays just throw out a whole herring, the rig dont matter as long as ou have plenty of hook showing and the bait in on the bottom you will get them, rays are not too fussy about expensive tackle. some times your better keeping it simple, less expensive and it works. but if your after say mulloway from hillaries you can PM and Iwill show you a rig that has caught me many mulloway from there over the years.

Wed, 2010-05-19 22:28

Geezus.....looks fancier than my snapper/mulloway rig!!

Dunno about the glowsticks at the bait....

To be honest.....I rather just use a 5oz star sinker with a short 30cm trace and a 1m long trace to the hook via a 3 way swivel....

As somebody mentioned....as long as your bait is on the bottom, you'll catch stingrays no problem. Hell Ive caught a few with a running sinker rig meant for skippys.

Looks like a good snapper rig rather than a sting ray rig.

Die Hard, not picking

Thu, 2010-05-20 08:08

But why not just use a standard knot like a Uni for the bottom hook. It is stronger than a snell and less likely to unrap with the loose tag end.

The knot however does look spiff.

Just trying to help. My snells is always a Uni on the bottom, with a silly snell above.

Hope it helps and wonder what other peoples thoughts are.

agree with above 

Thu, 2010-05-20 14:32

agree with above  ^^^^^

 

just uni the bottom, use a strip of mullet as bait and hold on dude...

how are you going to land them off the dissabled platform?

how are you going to un-hook the ray?

 and how are you going to realease it safely?

 mabye you should look at pinnaroo point or the beaches south of hillarys wall as that will make all of the above much easier for you and the ray,

hey mate i have thought of this a bit!

i am only 14 and i would not cope etc.

that is why i try otganise to go down with leemo as he knows what to do. he brings along a gaff and gaffs in the mouth then flips it on its back removes hook and the hold it back ionto the water then ungaff. doesnt sound hard but its tricky.

i use this rig and a whole scalie got some nice clean big bites from it aswell!

Hey eric if you want to hook

Sat, 2010-05-22 14:19

Hey eric if you want to hook the big black just go to the disabled platform and put a bait about 10-15 metres off the side looking at the beach. Every time I go there and get nothing I just plop a bait in there and it usually takes about 10 minutes. But you will probably lose a lot of rigs cause the ray is a monster, I haven't landed him yet and I was using my 37kg game rod with 800 metres of line, so get some cheap hooks and hold on:)
