Good as Gold

Sabikis with eight hooks instead of six.
125-Good as Gold  03

Charter captains Rob Hammer and Ray Rosher of Miami have atheory about gold-hook rigs: First get the hits, then get the baitin the boat. For that reason, their company, R&R Tackle, sellspackaged Sabikis that come with eight - instead of six - hooks,while keeping the leader light enough to avoid spooking the bait.If a hook or two breaks off, you still have enough to keep fishingand load the well. Rigs come tied with everything from Mylar tofish skin to tiny rubber squids and shrimp imitations. Hardtail(blue runner) rigs feature just two hooks, but they'redouble-strength. Retail cost per rig ranges from $2.79 to $3.99.For more information, call 800-755-8345 or e-mail Hammer at
