I caught a few Springs last year plunking spin n glows from the boat. A question though. On the bar rig should you secure the spreader bar to the line so it doesnt move, the bar rigs I have have beads above and below the spreader, so a tooth pick can be used to secure if needed. But should I do this, or should the spreader bar just free slide and sit on top the snap swivel that is used for the lead. Hopefully some one understands what Im trying to type.

Thanks

explain the "rings on end" deal. From what I can find you can get spreaders in bulkor 2 per pack that are just twisted and formed wire or you can purchase the "Fraser" bar rigs that are the same "t" bars pretied on a wire set up that has a snap swivel at one end and a regualr swivel at the other. Companies like Angelo's sport fishing and Delta tackle offer these ready to go.

I have recorded the episode of sport fishing BC where mark bar fishes the fraser. And the guide had modified all his spreader bars. He puts a length of stainless steel wire through the middle with beads. Both ends of the wire were looped and twisted. And he had a bead at each end and in the middle. This way the wire never unravels. It was rated 100lb stainless steel wire. The beads were extra large salmon beads. He also attached swivels into the loops before twisting them shut. I have done this to my spreader bars and since the day i modified them i haven't had any problems like before.

So u have a swivel inside a loop, then a bead, then the one "tunnel" of twisted wire then another bead, then the other "tunnel", agian another bead, with the loop and swivel.
