    Ernie,
    Cool link on the sea bass. Looks like you don't even need rigs. You can just order sea bass on Amazon Prime!. lol.
    Kidding aside, me and my dad use a 30-40lb test leader. Dad likes Ande Monofilament, I seem to have luck with fluorocarbon... 2-3 foot leader. Surgeons or slip knot on the bottom for your sinker. 1 or 2 dropper loops 6-8" apart. Then short a snelled hook attached to the dropper loop or loops. I have even just set the hooks right on the dropper loops as well. Deep water we do Hi/Lo and shallower just a single hook. That is just how me and my dad do it so... I will get you some pictures tomorrow night. All my gear is on the boat right now. I am interested to hear what other guys do.

    Simple hi lo rig with 24" leaders of 30# or so 8 to 10" apart and a 12 or 15# 6" leader for the sinker so it breaks off on snags is what I use. Of course half the sea bass I catch are while fluking jigging bucktails.
