A sabiki rig consists of a main line in which there are 6 to 8 dropper
lines attached. Attached to each dropper line is a hook with a piece of
fake fish skin. At the bottom there is usually a snap swivel where you
attach a weight and at the top there is a swivel that you can attach to
your main line.
The little hooks are dynamite at catching all kinds of baitfish. The
best way to use them is to drop the sabiki down to the bottom. Once at
the bottom jig it up and down a few times in a slow manner. If you
don't get anything after a little bit, jig it up higher and higher in
the water column. Once you get a fish on, you can either let it sit to
see if a few more won't bite or you can just reel the bait up.
