Deadbait rig octopus CAT SPIRIT.
Rig OCTOPUS CATSPIRIT is the assembly that all the catfish fishermen will inevitably have very quickly in their fishing box. Simple, easy to go up on the line, it is part from now on of one of the rigs the most used to fish catfish. Presentation of the assembly:
- Octopus from 15 to 18 cm of 2 colors pink and orange, threaded on easily dismountable lead.
- a lead of 75g completion GLITTER SILVER (spangled silver) voluntarily heavy to keep well the assembly at the vertical of the boat.
- triple 3/0 reinforced extremely pricking and robust, protected by a sheath rubber to avoid the abrasion of the knot and the risks of tangled line. the material:
- a rod preferably short (2m10).
- a Reel of size 8000 and a braid 45/100 minimum. Technical and fishing action:
- the triple hook is furnished with earthworms, of small fish or of thin straps of squid, this assembly gives to the fisherman the opportunity of presenting several baits, until finding the good combination…
- the line is dandled slowly with the short-nap cloth of the bottom or is separated and maintained well with the vertical under the boat.
- Some fishermen often hold the line with the hand, by protecting the fingers with a glove (technical clonck). depth of water:
- the ideal depth for which this technique is effective is approximately from 4 to 5m, this is why it is difficult to get results in small river. Advantages:
- the fisherman can also change the color of the octopus during the fishing trip if it wishes it…
- This assembly can be used and is particularly effective in all seasons, that is in spring, summer or even in winter…
- the only thing which will change according to the temperature of water will be the speed of animation, in winter to choose a rather slow animation. Disadvantages:
- In fact fish of modest size to medium let themselves trap by this technique, the large ones having normally learned how to be wary of this rig.
- the assembly combined with the technique of the clonck is much less profitable than for its beginnings, it is necessary to use the clonck reasonably.
