For a few blustery days each June, the world’s windsurfing stage veers toward Eagle Rock, on the Pistol River shoreline.

Last week, sardines, herring, smelt and American shad were being caught in copious quantities by anglers at the crab pier on the south jetty at the Port of Brookings Harbor, and anglers are all using sabiki rigs to catch them.

A sabiki rig is not a brand name, but a generalized name denoting a type of baitfish rig commonly used to catch herring and sardines.  They go by numerous brand names, but they all consist of at least six very small hooks.

Some sabiki rigs have wings and others only have colored beads.  Sometimes you will find that the baitfish will hit the rigs with wings, while on other days, they seem to go for the beaded varieties.
