Tied by Gawaine, this rippa rig is designed to avoid bi-catch and can be used both offshore and in the bay.
Made up with 100lb mono, quality Gamakatsu 8/0 inline circle hook, Hook’em lumo protector, quality solid ring and 20lb dropper leader.
You will need to tie 2m of wind on 50lb leader to your main line (preferably with an FG knot – check the vid in the video library). Then attach your wind on leader to the ring with a uni knot. Tie an appropriate sized sinker to the other end of the rig with a uni knot (not a loop). Generally for offshore fishing we use a size 4 sinker. In other tidal areas the size will differ – alter sinker size to make sure you hold bottom.
