Galveston Fishing Pier | What Fishing Rig Did We Use?

Answering the mail before we continue editing the Galveston Fishing Pier video. This video answers the question, “What fishing rig did we use…?”

We used a two section rig – one made with Weedeater Line and the other with Malin Hard-Wire. The video details how we made them. Of note is at 6:08 in the video, had a typo in the caption… it should read, “Had to use in-line circle hooks and non-stainless steel; offset, stainless steel hooks are not legal for sharks in Texas.”

There are other ways to setup for pier fishing, we liked this setup as it was inexpensive, could be modified as needed while on the pier, and worked well for the smaller sharks we were catching. Do suggest using a stronger rig if targeting large sharks.


  1. Two feet of .095 inch weedeater line
  2. Two 2.3mm aluminum crimps
  3. One Slider Rig
  4. One Barrel Swivel – Coastlock #4 rated at 90 lbs
  5. 18 inches of Malin Hard-Wire #9 rated at 108 lbs
  6. Circle Hook, Non-Offset 5/0 to 9/0

Crimper Tool – Cabelas
