The Pakula Shackle Rig™ - Light Gauge. Available in three sizes: 20mm, 25mm and 30mm
The Pakula Shackle Rig should be set to sixty degrees by holding the shackle and twisting the trailing hook so that the hooks remain in a V formation. The rig will run with points up.
*** Note that points and barbs should be shaped for the drag settings you use when trolling which is usually 33% of the line class used.
Available in three sizes
This was originally invented by Peter Pakula when trolling lures for Blue Marlin on the East Coast of Australia. It was a time when many lures of all types, including Pakula prototypes, were tried daily. This necessitated a rig that could easily and quickly be transferred between lures and also allowed the lure maximum freedom of action. The Pakula Dojo Peche Shackle Rig™ allows the hooks total freedom to line up with the lures centre, eliminating line twist. The hooks are free to swing, allowing the lure to exhibit its best possible action without hindrance or keeling effects. This gives the hooks the best possible chance of hooking up as they are able to work independently of each other. Suitable for Marlin, Tuna and other game fish.
See the Pakula Dojo Shackle Rig Heavy Products for the heavier rig.
