Hi! I am Bob McNally for Salt Water Sportsman magazine. You know many times, two lures are just better than one, particularly with jigs and sometimes spoons. And although I can't check two different lure colors simultaneously, but different size, weights and heads, you can check a lot of the different things out with two lure fish simultaneously.
Also for school fish like spotted seatrout, striped bass, you can actually catch two fish on the same cast and if they are smaller schoolies, that's a lot of fun. Setting up two lures really isn't difficult, particularly if there are two jigs and two spoons. One of the easiest way is to just tie, take a three or four foot piece of mono filament. Tie those two jigs together with a clinch knot or improved clinch knot.
We have the mono filament connecting the two lures about a third of the way down, so the two lures are offset. And then as the leader end, you just simply tie a double overhand surgeon's loop, which is just two overhand knots through the same loop.
One, two, it will hold just fine and that's where you tie your fishing line too. And you can fish two lures with one cast and frequently catch two fish with one cast which is a real hood for seatrout, striped bass, small schooly fish. Give it a try, have a good time.
