Here's how to rig the Grand Bahama Slugger for 30-pound tackle:
1. Use a clinch knot to tie a 5/0 hook to five feet of 50-pound-test fluorocarbon leader, and knot a No. 32 rubber band onto the leader, several inches above the hook. To knot the rubber band, lay it across the leader and then pull one end through the loop of the other end and cinch it tight. The rubber band slides on the line so it adjusts to fit nearly any bait. Rose prefers a medium ballyhoo.
