Default Ballyhoo Newb

I've been reading the recent ballyhoo threads, trying to learn a little more about it. We had some extra's leftover and old rigs from this weekend, so I butchered a couple with hopes that you guys could give me some helpful hints.

2 questions on split bill ballyhoo: 1. When using mono, can you use a weight? 2. When you are using Mono or Wire can you run it behind a seawitch or islander?

Thanks!

Yes and Yes just have to crimp the weight in place or just use wire which is much easier.

do not use a skirt on a split bill... the idea of the split bill is to make the bait swim under the surface by using the forehead of the ballyhoo as a "lip". If you put a skirt on it I would think it woudl plane the bait on the surface.

Once you see a properly rigged one swim, you will understand why you don't need skirts.....
