Basic Rough Ground Rig for Big Baits

Basic Rough Ground Rig for Big Baits

This is similar to the basic rough ground rig. However, the addition of a cheap and simple bait clip means that big baits such as whole squid, mackerel fillets and large cocktail baits (which would swing round and get tangled up) can be clipped to to help reduce tangles and aid smooth and trouble free casting. A simple metal bait clip is used, rather than an impact shield, as they are much cheaper. The rest of the rig keeps the same simple designed as the rough ground rig to limit the metalwork which can become snagged and keep costs down.
