If it is what I am thinking of, they were used typically for pier fishing. You take a appropriate size sinker and tie it on to your main line and cast it out as far as you can. You than take your leader with live bait and tie it to the ringed side of a snap swivel and clip the snap over your main line and let the rig "slide" down the main line.

This allows you to generally cast out further than if you were trying to cast the bait only. the bait will generally swim toward the sinker.

Someone else may know of a different rig but that is the one I am thinking of.

That's the rig thats popular off florida piers. In NC, we use a 2 rod rig. One rod is the anchor rod, where we sling out a big spider weight as far as you can. The second rod is the fighting rod, and this is attached to the anchor rod via a clothespin, so that when you have a fish hit, you can give a jerk and the line pops free of the anchor rod

Cool

The clothes pin is the old way. All you need to do is take some 140 lbs. wire about 12 inches long. Thread it thru the closed end of a snap swivel then boend the wire in half. I slide a couple of beads onto it and run them tight against the swivel. Next put your desired egg weight on and a couple more beads. The last thing needed is to crimp a crimp onto the 2 wires, if you don't when you get that explosive hit and run you will have no more breakaway left. I attatch the secure end of the release to my fighting line thus wonly having a swivel slide down the anchor line,so if you do break off the anchor you don't loose all your releases.

Hope this helps.

I havent pier fished in years!!!! Love this post! I would just first put a small swivel on your line so it will slide, then tie on your weight to the end of the line----so the swivel can slide. To the end of the sliding swivel attach your live bait rig w bait. This will let your bait swim anywhere it wants to in the water column. You can also use a sinker w wire on it act as a kind of anchor in the sand.---------also, whatcha know bout flying a kite off deerfield pier on a west wind? Lots of line and lots of clips!!!!!!!!!

The 2 rod setup is what I used when I pier fished when I lived in SC.
The 2 rod setup enables you to control the baitfish and force a topwater
presentation, pretty much like kite fishing. Very exciting whatching a smoker
king sky on your bait.
