Live bait balloons can be inflated to any size making them ideal for any size live bait. They prevent the live bait from getting caught up in and around the bottom structure and it gives you an indication of when there is a fish nearby as the balloon (and your bait fish) start moving quickly and erratically through the water.
You don’t need to knot the end of the balloon, simply wrap the balloon base around the grooves of the white balloon clip. Tie the clip to the top of the swivel with a suitable rubber band. When your fish strikes, the balloon will either deflate as it descends, or the rubber band will snap.
What you need to know
There are lots of different ways to rig your live baits, including with our live bait balloons which act as a marker for your bait.
Using a livebait to catch a kingie can be one of the more spectacular and deadly ways of attaching yourself to these freight train fish.
