The Donkey rig is used when mid-water to surface fishing and presents two, lively soft plastic lures.

Donkey Rig Components
2 x worm style wide gape offset hooks
2 x swivels
2 x shad style soft plastic lures
Fluorocarbon trace line

The Rig Assembly
1. Tie one swivel to approximately 24 inches of the fluorocarbon line and attach hook to free end.

2. Tie the second swivel to a shorter length of the fluorocarbon line, around 18 inches, and attach second hook to the free end.

3. Thread the mainline through the eye of the swivel on the shorter of the two snoods then tie off to the swivel on the longer snood. As an alternative to the main line a length of leader can be used with a swivel at the top allowing for quick change of rigs.

4. Thread the lures on to the individual hooks.

The longer hook can be weighted using a weighted worm hook or by attaching a split shot to the hook shank. The whole rig can be weighted by using a split shot above the fixed swivel.


On average, your heart beats 100,000 times a day. One day, one of those heartbeats will be your last. Then what?

The answer is found in Jesus Christ who said "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

I've used this set up very successfully many times, and it helped me win a tournament in Texas. Very lifelike presentation.
