How cool is that name of manufacturer please would love to get one for salt water

Ganno - They were originally designed for saltwater use and If I'm not mistaken, our state is looking at requiring some kind of decompression device onboard when fishing for bottom fish. The manufacturer is SeaQualizer, their website is simply http://seaqualizer.com/ You can purchase from them directly or from a handful of suppliers and their gear is made in the USA!

Mac's Bait Fish with a front hook set up and also a front tie up.....interesting. No issues with the hook getting snagged on the line when jigging?

It's a butterfly jig rig and it works great with mono/flouro, no need to go with braid and heat shrink. I think the key is to tie them different lengths to keep them from tangling with each other. I've not had any issues with them wrapping around the mainline. I use 3/4 or 1 oz p-line or cabelas jigs as you can get them fairly cheap and they flutter very well when rigged this way.

so is poking a little hole in the swim bladder a bad idea?thats what ive always done

The fizzing method is now frowned upon as many folks don't do it properly and inadvertantly damage an organ other than the swim bladder. Oregon has adopted the requirement for using a decending device this year and I expect Washington will do so as well (a fizzing needle does not qualify) . There are a lot of different ways and devices used to accomplish decompression in a fish, this is just one that is commercially available. Previously I used a weighted milk crate to drop on top of the fish and bring it to depth. Cheap and effective, but a bit difficult to use when the wind was blowing or in a heavy current.
