hi all, drew these up quicly this morning and wondering which is better, i have been meaning to sit more then one jig under a float for a while now and am keen to see the best way. maybe in the design with the jigs in line, u could run a baited kig on the bottom and have a prawn style or other jig on the top hanging????

Remember you cant keep all of the squid happy all of the time, only some of the squid some of the time...

I would go with the baited jig on the bottom (no need for sinker then), with a prawn style about half a metre above it............

SA - the land of the bigger fish. The fish on the east, measure the least, but if you head west, you'll be bringing in the best!!

I know this post is really late, but i've just been thinking about putting 2 jigs on the one line for the past 3 weeks now, has anyone had any luck doing this? It's like what Paulus had except no float or sinker, just the jigs. Does anyone think it would cause problem ie tangles when casting and retrieving? My brother thinks it might tangle in the main line. I want to try it for mornington pier around first week of spring to see what it catches. If you have any advice I'd appreciate it. :)
Hey Paulus if you're still around how did those rigs go? I was posting a pic but i don't have ifran view and when i tried downloading it i caught a virus :th
It basically looks like a patternoser but instead of sinker i'll have a jig. and another jig higher up.

hi squidlet, you got a virus from irfan view?

this info may help. maybe it was just a false alarm?

here is another free image resizing program which seems to be pretty good.

Thanks glen,
turns out i didn't need irfanview. I had a similar application on photoshop.
Any ways, any thoughts on the rig?

so long as it is only 2 jigs then i guess the tangles should not be too bad. just make sure the "dropper" length is quite short (ie the line to the top jig). also, the dropper line should be fairly stiff, so try using heavier line. The thinner the line is, the more likely it will tangle i think.
