How To Rig The Berkley Gulp Swimming Mullet On A Jighead

Sharing buttons:

in this video you're gonna see how to

rig a Berkley Gulp swimming mullet onto

a jig head and this is a great

combination for a variety of saltwater

fish pretty much most predators and the

inshore you know salt water environment

sweet this flounder your redfish sea

trout snook i'm tarpon you know really

just the full gamut because it just

mimics a lot of a lot of prey that are

there in those waterways so as far as

the effective way to rig it is first of

all you know this is the four-inch

swimmin mullet and it pairs well with

like a 1/8 to 1/4 ounce jig head

sometimes a little bit bigger for deeper

water but in general I like this 1/4

ounce er for you know 3 to 5 feet of

water a little bit lighter if if I'm

going shallow and a little bit heavier

from going even deeper and so the

essential goal when we're rigging is to

make sure that we don't have a big kink

in the bait once it's rigged we don't

want to have any sort of turns because

if we do then it's gonna be helicopter

in the water and that's the worst thing

that we possibly could do so we need to

rig it straight down the middle and then

when we take it out it needs to it needs

to come out at the natural point right

the the point on the bait where the just

the hook would naturally come out and so

a lot what I like to do is I like to put

it on the side and just hold it vertical

hold it where the the swimming mullet is

touching the the bought the base of the

jig head and so now we can mark it with

our thumb so we know that the hook point

should be coming out right about here to

make sure that it is as linear as

possible so I got that marked we're

going to go ahead and start on the very

top right straight down the middle and

just make sure that again that it is

going down the middle the entire time

you just take a little bit of feel I

like to kind of just kind of inch it

down slowly but surely and then we're

going to pop it out right at that point

that we marked right in the middle of

the bait so we're dead center of the

bait and and so now the goal is to get

it up over these little keepers with

with damaging the bait as little as

possible so really the best way to do it

is is just to kind of go there in one


so just shove it forward it got up there

and we can we're out at the natural

point right in the middle if we look at

it from this angle you know this is

totally linear there's no there's no

curves there's no kinks and we look at

it from the side there's no curves

there's no kinks from the bottom this is

gonna look really nice in the water when

it falls it's going to go straight down

that's not gonna be doing the helicopter

and then even when you start using it

you do want to look just to make sure

that that when you do pull it fast

it's it stays it stays like this with

the hook point up what you want to make

sure it doesn't happen is a helicopter

if you see it helicoptering that means

there's some sort of water drag that is

not hitting it properly you know there's

some sort of anomaly where it's not

symmetrical and and take it off and rear

it and then try it again because if it's

doing the helicopter you're just simply

not going to catch any fish it doesn't

look natural it'll spook fish away in

most instances so that's really it for

the rigging you know fairly simple just

again the biggest point is to make sure

that that it is symmetrical that

everything looks nice it's it's

streamlined and then when you do start

using it make sure that it is running it

through the water properly hook point up

no no helicopters and assuming that's

right this can certainly help you catch

a bunch of fish
