Whether I’m fishing in the humidity of summer or in the cold depths of the winter, one piece of terminal tackle I always carry with me are Tronixpro Luminous Pop-Ups! You’d be surprised at how many species are lured to these killer luminescent attractors. One of the most common questions I’m asked by anglers regarding pop-ups is how do you rig them…
I don’t trap pop-ups on my hook-length the conventional way with rubber stops or stop knots, they add extra weight, bulk and call me a tackle tart, but I don’t like the way they look either! Instead, I trap the pop-ups on my hook-lengths with cocktail sticks! By using the cocktail stick method you create a very neat and tidy stop that is self-contained inside the pop-up!
Rigging Tronixpro Luminous Pop-Ups
First thread the pop-up onto your hook-length.
Then firmly push a cocktail stick inside the hole of the pop-up.
Push the cocktail stick in as far as it will go, without using excessive force. Once in place, snip off the remainder of the stick as close to the pop-up as you can.
There you have it! A quick, easy and cheap way to stop your pop-ups from moving. To reuse the pop up, simply take another cocktail stick and push the cut off piece back out of the pop-up.
Give it a try, you may be surprised by how many species react to a bait presented in this way.
