Friend,
During offshore deep fishing, everytime my line got stuck in rock. Kindly suggest the sinker and best rig.

What sinker are you using?

Try to use something like bank sinkers instead of pyramid sinkers. Also, try not to expose your hook too much. If a little bit of the hook is out of the bait, it should do the trick. Just my opinion, but again I do not fish bait. Hope someone that bait fishes rocky terrain might be able to help you better with this.

I have seen people fishing rocky terrain with bait from the shore. Never seen them snagging the rig.
The rig has a cylindrical sinker and the hook point is very little exposed.

All I can suggest is that you try a 3way swivel, with the end of your main line tied to the top swivel and your baited line attached to the middle one.The bottom swivel should have a much weaker line attached to it with a cheap weight at its end and this line should be longer than your baited line.

If and when you hang up on the rocks, all you have to do is to reel in and the weak line and sinker will be broken off first, leaving the rest of your rig intact.

Yes, you are going to lose a lot of sinkers but at least you get to bottom fish confidently and also retain the balance of your rig.

Hope this helps.

Friend.
Not a single acknowledgment nor a word of thanks from you .... what a waste of our time.

Moderators

This seems to be a malaise with a lot of new or infrequent members, where they ask for information and then do not have the courtesy to either acknowledge or thank the contributors.

Whatever happened to good manners?

I , for one, have had enough of this boorishness and will from now on stop contributing to such queries.
