This umbrella rig is ready to fish!
This is a great tool to locate fish. There are 9 total connection points to create a simulated underwater school of bait-fish. Each Umbrella rig comes with a depth chart to ensure you are fishing the depths that you want. This is an excellent tool for stripers, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, and other game-fish. It can quickly turn a bad day into a productive day on the water.
Captain Mack's Umbrella Rigs can be fished in depths of 1 - 25 feet when flatlined or used at any depth behind a downrigger.
For each additional ounce of lead you place on the umbrella rig, you can expect the rig to run approximately 2 feet deeper. To increase the weight, use heavier jigs, place additional jigs on each of the inner loops, or place egg sinkers on the line above the umbrella rig.
Depth control is the key to maximizing your results. The depth chart on the back of the pre-rigged header card will allow you to place the umbrella within a foot of the desired depth. Please keep in mind that any alterations such as: (line size, jig weight, boat speed, and wind speed) can dramatically effect the depth of Captain Mack’s ready to fish Umbrella Rigs.
