SUBJECT: live bait techniques

Submitted by bigjohn (24.136.151.99) from NORTH CAROLINA on

If I ever get back down to the beach to get my big net I'm gonna do some more live baiting again on High Rock, Norman or Tillery. Haven't done much in a while and just wanted to get some pointers and maybe do some stuff differently.


Normally I'll pull 5 down rods with carolina rigs: 1 to 1 1/2 ounce egg weights, 17 pound running line and 12 pound flouro leader (about a 3 foot leader). Small circle hook or treble hook and pull 4-6 inch gizzards, threads or bluebacks.


I'll float one light line with just a hook, then another with a quick release corks...just run them behind the boat.


Keep the trolling motor going just fast enough to keep the lines from tangling.


What do you guys do differently?


  1. Jaybee (152.16.235.196) from NORTH CAROLINA says pretty much the same but I don't like flourocarbon
    I fish Buggs and we have small fish and very few snags so I use 10lb blue Stren for leader and mainline. Flouro seems a little stiff to me and does not allow the bait to move as freely. Visibility is so low here,I don't think it's an issue. I've got spots for 8 downlines, 2 Waterbugz planers, 2 Offshore (for planer/downlines) and at least 2 freelines. I've had six on at once before and got all but one into the boat. Usually if I can catch bait, I can catch fish...


  2. Jaybee (152.16.235.196) from NORTH CAROLINA says oh yeah...
    We've found here that from now until March, Jumbo Shiners will work just about as good as shad. I use a #6 red treble (don't be hating,have never had a gut hooked fish using this set-up) and nose hook them. Also put a sequin on the hook to keep them from wiggling off the hook.


  3. Rookie (166.82.245.73) from NORTH CAROLINA says live baiting
    I do about the same as big john with some planer boards thrown in at times. I like about a 3 oz. weight on my downrods so I can move a little quicker and still keep the lines vertical. I'll move about .7-.8 when slow trolling and will slow down when I get bit or mark a big school. I also like the reddi rig float out the back with a carolina rig on it.


  4. nodoubt (66.226.61.112) from NORTH CAROLINA says rookie cant catch no stripers.......
    hes a trophy whisker catcher now.....


  5. Rookie (166.82.245.73) from NORTH CAROLINA says Nodoubt!!
    Well you are right about one thing, but I can still put some stripers in the boat man. I've got me a few this fall bro. No hawgs yet, but I'm still lookin'. Most days when I go, they get scared and stay deep......smart fish.
