When To Use Rubber Bands For Fishing

Below are a few times you may want to use rubber bands for fishing. 

1) As A Release Clip 

Rigging bands make great make shift release clips, especially for trolling.  Simply connect your rubber band to your outrigger to spread your lines out. You can also connect it to a cleat to make your trolled line closer to the water. 

2) To Connect An Egg Sinker

One way to quickly turn one of your rods into a midwater or bottom rod without a swivel is to connect is to stick a loop of your line through and egg sinker and then stop it from coming back through using a rigging band. 

3) To Connect A Bank Sinker

One of the advantages of connecting a bank sinker to your fishing line using a rigging band is that you can easily remove it from your line once you bring your fish up to the boat, simply by pulling and breaking the rigging band.   

You can connect a bank sinker using a rigging band in two ways. 

1) Once your bank sinker is already attached to your rigging band, create a loop and then loop your sinker around the loop and your line several times. This will allow you to connect your bank sinker to your line in a way that the bank sinker will not slide. 

2) Connect your rigging band to a snap swivel and then connect it to your bank sinker. 

4) To Connect A Glowstick
