- Tie a small snap swivel to your main line. I use a polomar knot.
- Take a small Octopus hook and tie it on to an 18in. piece of 15lb flourocarbon or 14lb monofilament leader.
- On the opposite end of the leader tie a barrel swivel.
- You can make a bunch of these to take with you on your fishing trip. If the leader or hook breaks you can unsnap it from your main line and put a whole new rig on quickly without having waste your time on the water fooling with tackle.
If you want to maximize your time out spadefishing you can also rig a couple rods to leave unattended in a rod holder. I use the same rig but just add a clip-on bobber just above my leader. This can be casted off the back of the boat and left or is good when fishing around structure with someone who is new to the game because it allows them to visually see where there hook and line is in relation to the structure. It also lets you see what the current is doing as well.
