How To Tie a Running Rig Used in fast moving water Offshore Inshore

Running Rig for fishing Fast Current Rig or running rig : A Simple Fishing Rig used in area’s you might find fast flowing current’s like western port or any other place in Australia. i use this rig when the tides are flowing  to target  fish l such as  gummy sharks & snapper . To tie this fishing rig you will need some leader, i prefer to use 80lb in fast current as you need heavy sinkers to get to the bottom .you will also need a Circle Hook  , i don’t snell my hooks in fast moving currents as you want your bait to sit straight once on the bottom . you will also need some easy clips & Some shock leader , i just use normal 80lb leader for my shock leader  you will need Swivels rated to 100lb.  a bell sinker / weight to clip on to your rig.

When tiring this running rig connect the rig using uni knots & to connect mono to( braid main line ) i use a double uni knot  , follow the diagram to tie the rig, this rig will hold up on many fish i have caught snapper gummy sharks & variety of fish easily dispatch of big ray’s & seven giller sharks , using Circle hooks mean you can catch sharks with teeth on this rig because of  9 time out of ten you get a jaw hook up which keeps the leader away from the fish teeth . you can also use this running rig on whiting you just need to use smaller line class.

Slack tide rig i use a paternoster rig

When i fish fast current i use two different fishing rig when going fishing in western port i normally launch my boat 2 hours before top of the tied . for most of the time you have 12 knots of current  but when ebb tide come’s which usually last for a hour or so i like to use a flasher rig which are great , for that period until tide starts to flow again, i use Reedy’s Rigz because of the good quality pre-tied rig & there affordable .
