Often when you’re chunking baits, the tide and current carry the chunks far away from your baited hook.
Here’s a way to lower the chunks and release them alongside your baited hook.
The rig requires an outrigger clip, a snap swivel, a 12-ounce sinker, a length of at least 130-pound-test mono and a crimping sleeve.
1) Snap the release clip to the running line of a second rod and then crimp 24 inches of the heavy mono to the clip.
2) Knot in a sinker 14 inches down from the crimp. This leaves an 8-inch tag end, on which you thread cut chunks.
3) Put the end of the tag end in the clip, and lower it all to the bottom.
With a sharp tug, the weight of the sinker and the snap of the rod will pull the tag end from the clip, releasing the chunks near the baited hook.
