These P-Line Rock Cod Rigs are ready to hit the water. They include the line, swivels, hooks, and two plastic squids. The Rock Cod Rig is a smaller version of the highly effective Ling Cod Rig. At 3.5 inches these squid are the perfect length for school sized rockfish. This version is also tied on 50 pound leader, but uses a smaller 5/0 hook. When it’s time to load the cooler with a limit of Rock Cod you’d better have one of these rigs in your arsenal.
Here at Tackle Express, we like to put a small piece of squid or some gel fish attractant on the squid. The gel scent can be Hookup Baits Mermaid Milk, Smelly Jelly, Hot Sauce, or any kind of scent that stays on well. We like to put it inside the squid so it releases slowly.
Add a weight that is heavy enough to get to the depth of water you're fishing, hit the bottom and jig it up and down 3 feet at a time using the rod tip. After a few times, send it to the bottom again since the terrain can change as the boat drifts.
