    I don't know what trip you have coming up, but it is always possible that there will be help available on the boat. I always bring my crimper and several sizes of crimps in my roller bag, and I see a lot of other guys rigging on their trips too. I have often set up other people who ask me, just as others have helped me in various ways. The people who chase big tuna tend to have helpful attitudes. Plus there is always the crew. Of course, good shops like Squidco are also a good source. But sometimes you can hit a bad streak and lose several rigged lures in a row, and if that happens don't panic, just ask for help.

    The one available on my off day!
    Any boat where you would need flat flat that size will surely have the tools to get you set up...call the landing and ask if they can rig you up too. Which landing are you leaving from?

    Dont get on an overnight expecting the crew to rig you up. They only have a short window to sleep.
    You have your whole life before getting on the boat to do that.
    There are several stores in SD that can do it.
    Turners in El Cajon location at least, Dana Landing. What part of town you in?

    Dont show up ten minutes before the store closes or your boat leaves. That doesn't mean you get helped now if theres people ahead of you. Handed back people bags full of reels needing spoolups countless times telling them t cant get to their reels before their boat leaves.

    MIKEE.... might I suggest that most Tackle Shops would rig those FF Jigs for little or no charge.... if you BOUGHT the jigs from them at the time you asked for the rigging job to be done. Anyways... "Do th Dance".....buy the swagger.... and crimps and call it an "Investment" in your future fishing success. Good luck.
