Just Right to Bite Take one assist cord, an octopus skirt, a split ring and a solid ring. Assemble them and you have a light lure / jigging assist rig. Modern small jigs are rigged with the jig hanging on a split ring, ancillary to the direct contact with the hook. This type of lure attachment (or lack of it) not only provides more lure movement than traditional jigs, which means more bites, but the main benefit is a stronger / direct connection between your line and the fish. Larger jigs for kingfish have been rigged this way for a long time, now their micro cousins are following suit. For the new butterfly jigs and micro jigs this is the best way to rig them. The cord (often mistakenly called and sold as kevlar) is a polyaramid material, 55-80lb is fine for the little guys. Hooks need to be small, about size 2, 4, 6 or 1/0 (16, 17, 18 in Japanese sizing). When the fish are shy on bitting, the best hooks are lighter gauge, because the hook up rate goes down as the hook gets thicker. Split rings need to be size #5 or #7; solid rings size 5.0mm or 6.5mm. The octopus skirt is compulsory on an inchiku, but the butterfly and micro could use the addition if it suits their size and action. The total length of an assist rig is about half- to three-quarters the length of the jig / lure body. Readymade assist rigs are available in all sorts of variations, but making your own is very popular now, so you can get it just right-to-bite.
