Danngit Rig (float rig for Rabbitfish)


Rabbitfish are plentiful in the Philippine waters especially in the shallow limestone reef ledges of the Visayas.  These fish which range in size from tiny minnow sized fish to larger fish over 1 kilo in size can be frustrating for anglers because of their difficulty to catch.  Fishermen in Cebu have come up with a way to catch these schooling fish using a float and small hooks:



Leader with multiple, tiny hooks

Bait: boiled Saba (cooking Banana)

Technique: Chum with rice; sight fish

Notes:  Rabbitfish tend to feed all day and so can be caught regardless of tide and moon.
