Tokyo rig???

Recommended Posts

So i just caught a glimpse of the new vmc Tokyo rig they just released at ICast. Have any of you seen it yet? It looks interesting.... Trying to figure out how you could rig your own since they are only available to pre order right now.....

I don't think it's anything that new. Ike went over to Japan a few years back and there was a write up done on Bassmasters that went into detail on how to make it.

2 Split rings & a tungsten drop shot weight is what ive used. Put both rings on the hook, put the weight on one & tie your line to the other. Gives it more movement with  2 rings. Works good with a swimbait or a fluke. Its called a jika rig.

Basically just drag it like a c-rig?

You can drag it, swim it or stroke it. I use a 3/8 oz drop shot weight in spring during the shad spawn. Sometimes stroking a swimbait ( big bite 4" cane thumper)on this rig at night is lights out.
