When the yellows don't want to cooperate at the islands, a lot of captains will kill a couple hours with shallow halibut drifts. I've asked many deckhands and old timers what their go-to rig is for this, and I've heard a lot of different answers. Popular ones are reverse dropper loop(RDR), RDR with trap rig, 3-way swivel rig, carolina rig, sliding egg sinker rig, I've even seen a guy drop-shotting a live sardine(??). I've heard you don't need a trap rig, and others have told me a trap treble hook is imperative. There's 'dines, live squid, and mackerel in the tank, which one are you grabbing? I want to see what YOUR go-to rig is and why you feel its better than the others in this situation.
