The high low rig allows you to target fish at two different depths at once. This type of rig is generally used in open water and areas with a lot of heavy structure. Its design also allows fish to present their bait to multiple sections of the water column, giving them more confidence. However, this type of rig does have some drawbacks.

The high-low rig is a good choice for smaller baits. However, the rig is not designed for large baits. A small bait with a softer feel will be more effective. The rig will work best with baits that are smaller than a large peacock bass or an eel.
The high low rig works well for a wide range of species, including small bluefish, fluke, black sea bass, scup, and tautog. Choosing the right hooks will depend on the species of fish you’re trying to catch. For example, clams and worms work well for a striper rig, while worms and squid are great for bottom fish.
The high low rig is an ideal choice for sheepshead because it allows you to switch baits without compromising the overall presentation of your bait. Its double hook allows you to present one bait tight to the bottom and another bait higher in the water column. As the sinker moves up and down the line, the fish has longer time to swallow the bait, which results in a higher hookup ratio.
The high-low rig requires a more detailed set up than a standard rig. You should prepare the high-low rig well in advance. The first step is to rig a leader of about a meter and tie a granny knot, looping the line three times and tightening it at the same time. Once this step is completed, you are ready to fish! Just make sure you have plenty of line.
The high low rig is one of the most common rigs available and is especially good for surf fishing. It keeps your bait out of the reach of crayfish, weed, and mud. It also increases scent, which attracts catfish. The drawbacks of the high-low rig are that it reduces aerodynamics and decreases casting distance.
Another common rig is the drop shot rig. This rig is also great for fishing species that inhabit the middle and lower portions of the water column. The drop shot rig is also good for surf fishing and bay fishing. It allows you to retrieve your lure while it is stationary and also gives you more control over it. In addition, the drop shot rig allows you to twitch your bait without the need for a fish to eat it.
