TWO-HOOK BOTTOM RIGS Start with an arm’s length of 30- to 50-pound monofilament fishing line as a leader. Tie four 2- to 3-inch dropper loop knots 3 to 4 inches apart. Attach a sinker to the bottom loop using one of your fishing knots. Tie a hook to each of the two middle loops.
How far should the weight be from the hook?
Step 2: Attach 1 or 2 sinkers, 6 to 12 inches above the hook. This weight will keep your bait or lure down in the water and will help swing it away from shore.

How far should hook be from swivel?
Typically, anglers will use a two to four-foot section of line between the barrel swivel and the lure. This ensures the lure is far enough away from the swivel and its natural action is not impeded.
What is a self hooking rig?
A complete self-hooking rig. A fitted swivel set in the seat of the sinker causes the fish to hook itself after biting, with no action required from us, which is why it is called a self-hooking rig.
Do I need a weight on my fishing line?
Not always, but they are generally required for bait fishing. Although a heavier sinker can aid in casting distance, for the majority of fishing applications, you will want to choose a lighter sinker than a heavier sinker. That sinker on your fishing line is much more important than you realize.
