    Those big Clousers will be fished very deep and very fast.

    These will be fished closer to the surface on a medium fast long strip retrieve.

    I'm sure both will have a positive outcome.

    What ever you do never confuse Fishing With catching Fish !!!!

    But your reasoning has a fatal flaw; it overlooks the fact that to comprehend it requires that one rub a few brain cells against each other. The heat thus generated produces the light that illuminates the fact, but alas, not everybody has the resource required to fuel the process --SG

    MC do you not worry about the fish being hooked in top and bottom jaw and breaking off and dying?

    You seen the Phillips Rig?


    :

    "Capt Bard Phillips (Decisive) has developed a hook rig (shown above) that promotes the conservation efforts we all employ in the Billfish Sport Fishing Industry. Often with tandem hook rigs fish become hooked in the upper and lower jaw areas during a fight. Unfortunately, there are times when the fish is broken off after hook up and swims away with a hook stuck in both jaws and secured only inches apart by mono.

    The rig that Phillips has developed allows the fish to freely open his jaws and feed until natural occurrences allow him to rid himself of the hooks. The upper hook is held in place for initial hook up by a rubber band. If the fish ends up lost and also has another hook in his jaw he may easily break the rubber band and this allows the top hook to slide freely on the leader.

    This rig has been tested thoroughly by a number of anglers and is not found to affect hook up rates on Billfish. We are proud to offer this rig when requested on all of our big game flies, whether rigging IGFA length, or 30” shocks ."
