Natural-bait dredges are deadly for sailfish in the Pacific and white marlin in the Atlantic. Follow these simple steps for rigging a mullet on a pin rig to enhance your dredge the next time you head offshore.
Start with about 4 feet of waxed rigging floss. Double it, then tie a single overhand knot to create a loose loop.
Insert a pre-made weighted pin rig into the mullet's head through the bottom of the chin. Make sure the wire loop is exposed from the nose of the mullet so that a snap swivel can be easily attached when adding it to a dredge.
Loop the floss over the front of the pin and pull down on the loop to tighten it against the front of the bait's head.
