Knowing how to rig ballyhoo the proper way is an art. The last thing between you and the fish is the bait, so it better be right. Do you really want to gamble with baits that are just ok? Or, do you want the best baits rigged the proven way? Wondering how to rig ballyhoo for trolling? Here is a short summary of the selection process: In this video we specifically discuss ballyhoo colors, firmness, eyes and beaks. These all play a big factor once you get out on the water. You need a good blue/green color on top of the bait. Too much bright blue will not hold up well while trolling. An orange color on the tail of the Ballyhoo is a good sign. You will also need to look for firmness in the stomach area and make sure the eyes are clear and not foggy as well as making sure the beaks are not broken! Here is a list of the step by step rigging techniques you will see in this video: The Swivel Rig, The O-Ring ballyhoo rig, The Floss Rig, Circle Hook ballyhoo with Mylar Rig, Hooker Style Rig, Split Bill Ballyhoo, Wire Rig Ballyhoo and the Double Hook Ballyhoo Pin Rig.
