I have never seen a set up like that before :0 I think that would definitely be illegal in Australia !

I believe Oz has got number of hooks restrictions. Nauru doesn't at the moment. This one is my 30 hook rig. They can go up to 100+. Its a traditional rig after the locals were introduced to metal wires etc from colonialisation.

Interesting rig. A bit like a Sabiki rig made out of wire. This could also be useful to catch baitfish of a wharf I imagine. If one was to use only a few wire strands for let's say five small hooks or so. Would be lot less tangly than a Sabiki. What kind of bait do you guys use?

Baited with cut skipjack tuna, but milkfish works great if you can get it. Yup I've seen those umbrella rigs.. we have a few names for the different configurations like starfish or Christmas tree. Naming depends on the original designer and popularity then it gets adopted by the community.

Best name yet for one config that older than 50yrs is "chicken feet"
