Horse Ballyhoo Quick Rig Lipped

This is the same as the regular but made for a larger bait. On our sport fish boats we like to use bigger bait. We have found this helps weed out the smaller fish. We fish tournaments most of the time and are looking for the big fish in the school. Capt. Charles Fricke has based the Better Bait Systems on 45 years of fishing knowledge and experience. Capt Charlie Fricke was the 2001-2002 angler of the year for the Bahamas Billfish Classic the most sought after title in deep sea sport fishing.


The Horse Quick Rig has a specially patented design that both closes the mouth and gill plates of the bait fish. This provides a bait that can be trolled at a slightly faster speed and for a longer time with out being washed out. Pictured here is the medium standard Quick rig lipped.

The Quick Rig Lipped adds a little scoop under the nose weight. This helps your bait swim 4-8 inches under the water with an occasional pop. This is an excellent flat line setup. This quick rig gets the bait into clean water under the wake of the boat and offers a life like presentation. We have a hook up rate in the high 90% range.
