How to Rig a Fishing Line for Pier Fishing
Many types of fish can be caught from a pier, and there are many ways to target them. Snapper, sea trout, sheepshead and more can be caught with the free line rig we'll talk about here.
Things You’ll Need:
- Light Tackle Fishing Rod and Reel
- 12-pound test fluorocarbon
- Size No. 1 Circle Hook
Cut a 12-to-18-inch length of fluorocarbon.
Tie the fluorocarbon to the fishing line using a double uniknot.
Tie the hook to the tag end of the fluorocarbon using an improved clinch knot.
Tips & Warnings
By using no weight or "free lining," the angler can feel every tap on the line, letting him know when a fish is biting.
Small split shot weights can be added for added casting distance if desired.
