These T-Turn Bait Rigs come pre-rigged with fluorocarbon line, a snap, and two T-Turns out to two hooks. With this rig I’ve snapped on a 1oz Cattail sinker to the bottom, which is great as it allows my sinker to walk over the rocks, helping keep me out of any snags.

The bait rig is really something I’ve been enjoying fishing with as the T-Turns keep my lines tangle free as I’m able to run two baits, letting the minnows swim freely.

If you want to get your own bait rigs, you can get them here:

We’re going to get our lines all the way down to the bottom, and just drift. This is why the Cattail sinker is key, keeping our sinker from getting snagged on the bottom.

For line type, we’re running with Thunderbraid line with a fluorocarbon leader.

It only took about 30 seconds before we hooked into our first lake trout!

Until next time, good luck and good fishin’!
