RIGGING SPLIT-BILL BALLYHOO



Green Leadin

    Split-bill ballyhoo have been held by many as a secret way of rigging a ballyhoo to troll. Professional teams use these baits as an added advantage in sport and tournament fishing but the truth is that they are simple to rig and anyone can easily learn how to do it properly. A few tricks is all it takes and the following is a step-by-step guide to rigging a perfect split-billed ballyhoo.
    Start with the essentials:
    Crimps — I prefer short crimps
    Egg Sinkers —1/4- ounce to 3/4-ounce, depending on the bait size (small ballyhoo, 1/4-ounce; medium ballyhoo, 1/2-ounce; select ballyhoo, 1/2- to 3/4-ounce, and horse, 3/4-ounce)
    Monofilament or fluorocarbon — appropriate to what you are trying to catch
    Hooks — Open or Tuna Bend
    Crimper
    Copper or stainless wire, 12 inches
    Excellent-quality ballyhoo
