When you're targeting a powerful species, like kingfish, with live bait, you need a rock solid rig.
Our pre-tied livebait rigs include our famous, chemically sharpened LB hooks (in either 7/0 or 9/0), tied with strong, abrasion resistant 200lb Tough Trace. This combination is IGFA legal, so your catch can become a regional and international record.
We highly recommend using these rigs in conjunction with our livebait balloons.
What you need to know
We've always liked to do things our own way. Which is why we've always rigged our John Dory rigs in New Zealand. This helps us ensure you get the best possible rig.
One of the key things to remember is that you need to match the size of your bait and your hook, and the weight of your leader to the size of the species you’re targeting.
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.
