Want to combine power fishing and a finesse technique?
Gamakatsu has done just that, with one of its latest terminal tackle offerings, the Gika Rig.
The Gika Rig uses an offset worm hook and an elongated drop-shot weight attached directly to the hook eye by a snap and split ring. The snap allows fishermen to quickly change out the size of the weight, depending on the presentation needed or the depth targeted.
The weight’s position allows the worm or other soft-plastic bait to fall more freely and rotate from side to side as it descends. Virtually weedless, it can slip through vegetation and other kinds of cover.
The Gika Rig weights come in 1/8-, 3/16-, 1/4- and 3/8-ounce sizes to be matched with 2/0, 3/0 and 4/0 hooks. The weights have their size stamped into the side for easy recognition, and the weights and the clip are both painted black.
