Hello Everyone,

first post Smiley  I was just wondering what rigs everyone here uses.  I fish from onshore and so far all I've used are paternosters (by the way ... what do you call these rigs in Maltese?  I always go to the store and say "some of those").  I've seen people here recommend using a running ledger rig for bottom fishing .... I was wondering if anyone has tried out the "pulley rig" (you can see it here http://www.geocities.com/tony2kuk/rigs.html).  Looks like this setup might be better for our rocky Maltese coasts.  Also what kind of sinkers does everyone use?  I've seen a bunch of fishermen use spark plugs!

I like to use running ledger mostly since I find it very effective with breams. As a cast weight normally I start from 10grms to 25grms. Regarding the weight take care about the rod since on it normally there will be marked the cast wieghts. Still with a pater noster it is still effective since with it u can even make 3 hooks and therefore sometimes / occasionaly u can catch for example 2 together. 3 from land is a bit difficult.(at least me I had never luck)

I'm always happy with one fish Smiley  I usually work with 10 - 20 grams casting weight ... however I find myself getting snagged quite a bit.
