I did dabble in making a few prototypes over the years. Sorry Mate, we didn't end up running with them though due to lack of interest in the pre-development research side.

Might revisit the idea one day though . . . sounds like Steve and Bobby at LGF have you covered though for the meantime :1311_thumbsup_tone2:

Resurrecting this old topic. Was looking into this and on a NZ website the author recommends just using a large coast lock swivel to attach the bait to the main line. I'm going to give this a go soon. Just need to get some rings.

That sure as hell makes it an easier process, however, without a sinker on the bait, how do you know it is reaching the intended zone and isn't just beyond where your line meets the water? Particularly in the surf...

I was going to use live bait that will swim out. I've got live salmon out past the breakers before unwaited.

I guess ultimately if you're happy with a bait that could be anywhere from where your line meets the water, to your swivel, then that'd be perfectly fine. However, personally I wouldn't be doing that unless I was not worried about the depth range I'm targeting due shallow water or similar. 

 

Free swimming live baits pick up fish regardless as long as they don't come back to   your feet.
