If you bottom fish in the Puget Sound, straits, or in the ocean, you need to know how to set up for bottom fishing. Below are five great bottom fishing setups that are versatile for whatever type of bottom fishing you are doing.

The spreader setup is good at keeping your baits separated and line from tangling up with your baits.

The 3-way drop setup is great for drift fishing.

The knocker setup is best to get live bait down while let it move around.

The sliding sinker setup is also good for live baiting.

The mooching setup is good for running herring or anchovies when targeting bottom fish ( and also salmon).
