Pitbull Tackle UV Flash Bottom Fish Rig
The Pitbull Tackle UV Flash Bottom Fish Rig is a pre-tied rockfish rig featuring two UV enhanced flies that glow spectacularly underwater. Designed to attract all varieties of bottomfish with or without bait, the Pitbull Tackle UV Bucktail Bottom Fish Rigs are some of the most advanced shrimp fly rigs to date. On the top side of the rig - where the main line is tied - Pitbull Tackle selected a high quality barrel swivel to reduce line twist that is common with bottom fish rigs. On the bottom side of the rig, a dropper loop has been tied into the main line to attach whichever sized weight is preferred.
The Pitbull Tackle UV Flash Bottom Fish Rig utilizes super sharp 5/0 and 7/0 hooks dressed with UV enhanced bucktail and mylar strands. This allows for better visibility underwater, allowing the fish to target the flies more easily. When reviewing the colors, you'll notice how detailed these attractor flies are.
How To Fish:
Fishing the Pitbull Tackle UV Flash Bottom Fish Rig is easy. First, tie your main line to the barrel swivel on top of the rig. Next, attach your weight by sliding the dropper loop through the eye on the weight, looping it over the weight itself, and then pull the loop tight until it is snug. At this point, the rig is ready to be fished. As an optional enhancement, scent can be added to the flies or strips of bait such as squid can be threaded onto each fly. Next, lower the rig to the desired depth. This is typically on the bottom, however some fish tend to school up off of the bottom and suspend in the water column. Once the bait has reached the desired depth, slowly raise and lower the flies to entice hungry fish. Occasionally, reeling up through a school of fish while raising and lowering the rod can be an effective strategy, especially in shallower water. Once bit, it can be beneficial to leave the rig down in the strike zone for a few more seconds before reeling, as the struggling fish typically fires up other fish nearby resulting in the other shrimp fly getting but as well.
In California, anglers can have two hooks per line, and while you will see many different styles, the Pitbull Tackle UV Flash Bottom Fish Rig is definitely the most complete model we have ever seen. Braided line is an excellent choice for the main line as the fish will only come into contact with the leader. We suggest using torpedo style sinkers ranging from 2oz - 12oz depending on water depth.
