Simple Rig Ballyhoo Pitch
Captain Chris Giovanni
Skill Level 1-star
Supplies Needed: Large Ballyhoo, 2- 12” copper wire strands, Chugger head, 16/0 circle hook.
Take the two strands of copper wire and twist both ends together. On one end twist a small loop as pictured
Rig the ballyhoo leaving your looped end of copper extending an inch beyond the end of the ballyhoo bill. (this will accommodate the chugger and you need to leave enough room so the hook has room to move)
Place the chugger over the twisted copper loop and onto the ballyhoo
Take your circle hook and insert into the loop and make several twists securing the hook
Here is how the rig should look. The twisted wire adds stiffness so the hook remains in front of chugger
