I have been running several brands of meat rigs this year without much success. The only one that has put fish in the box is John King. Yesterday I was watching the action of the atomik and diabolical which led me to believe they are not tuned correctly. They do not roll even behind a big foot spin doctor. Does anyone know how to properly tune one? Also what the proper “roll” would be?
Tuning meat rigs
Have not been able to find those videos. I am wondering if it must spin like a cut plug
If I were to get into meat rigs, I would go with Musselhead Meat Rigs. Their slogan is "No toothpicks. No tuning. Simply meat-rigging."
I've been contemplating getting into them out of my kayak, but I do fine with my go to stuff and meat would just be one more thing to drag around.
there are some videos on line that go over this. The trick is the number of revolutions per second. with a meat rig, the flasher is an attractor and does not add any action.
