Sabiki rigs - catching alewife

Recommended Posts

Brian these may work (size #8) and will work with smelt as well but I would suggest #10-12's if you can find them. i got mine while at the Kittery Trading Post in Maine. They may have them on their website if not give them a call. The woman that runs the sporting goods section is very knowledgeable. Most come with 6 hooks so need to trim one off to comply with NYS regs.

They weren't the same ones you posted.  I found them on amazon.

Just curious if you guys like to keep the tail section on when you cut the alewife plug?

I run tail pieces probably 75% of the time.
Personal preference for me
