like i said, i "worry" but the man and his books say stop being a giner and run them for onos they wont hit the teasers they'll hit the chase bait. the man has spent more time on the water then i have been alive so i have no reason to doubt what he says. not to mention his bars are made chock full of o.c.d. love. the attention to detail put in them is impressive, i wish i could rig like that.You have to put it in gear? (Sound of pen furiously taking notes). When I first started running Fred's bars I was worried about 'hoos and such hitting the unarmed squids, bitin' 'em off. I can hear the 'hoo talkin' while feeding on each successive squid, "it loves me, it loves me not". I have not had that experience of yet. The only time that I've had fish attack the wrong squid, that I"ve visually noticed or seen forensics of such when examining the bars at days end, have been with schools of sierra. The little dudes are like Hells' Angels', they don't take turns. Even with the pesky black skipjack tuna down here, that love these bars alot, they seem to always wait their turn. I would be interested to know from anyone that runs other kinds of spreaders if this is generally the case.
