It's a common rig of bucket heads for large, toothy fish. The fish is supposed to inhale it. The leader ends up where the teeth are. The hook hooks in the gullet. Of course the gullet-hooked fish dies, but the bucket head is out there to kill anything that swims anyhow. :idea: :idea:

Evil, if true. But of course I would not put anything past bucketheads. I guess it explains this as well, although it came from the 'goons and I am not sure there are any toothy creatures to be had there.

Occasionally I recover a lost lure or rig that really stumps me. Here's one from my last outing - yes, it's a snelled hook to ~20# steel leader to mono, under a bobber. I am actually thankful for it, as I am low on leaders, but WTF man? To be continued...

This is basically the set up my friend uses for fishing... up in the Northwoods... for EVERYTHING. Perch, Gills, Bass...

I have tried (unsuccessfully) for over 20 years to get him set up to tie direct for most things. No luck, he's a crabby old bastard and won't change for nothin. I tried getting him to use a slip bobber, he won't- says it's to complicated.

Those are all variations on what actually IS called a "wtf-rig," because that is what you say when the guy fishing next to you, tips it with a cheese hot-dog, and lands a 4 pound bass, while you've been casting everything in your box,and getting skunked!

Fairly certain he knew that. If you follow the thread, it's postings for WTF rigs, especially in relation to water ways these have been found.
