Three way rig was big producer
Throughout the summer of 2002, anglers followed
the adventures of Mike E on Cheney as he used a three-way rig
to land fish when others were having no luck. He shared his rig
several times on the Reports from kansas Anglers page. Here are
the instructions, try it, you'll like it.

- Three Way Rig Instructions
I have received a lot of emails from a lot of you inquiring about
the 3 way rig. I explained it earlier in the summer, and guess
I need to explain it again. I wish I would have taken a picture
of it, so you could see with your eyes just what it looks like,
but it is really simple.
1. You need a 3 way Swivel. HEAVY DUTY. But not TOOOO HEAVY DUTY.
2. 2 leaders I prefer 25 lb test clear mono line, one leader
aprox 5' in lengh, the other 2 1/2 to 3 ' in length.
3. 4" pearl white Sassy shad. Put the sassy shad on a HEAVY
DUTY JIGHEAD HOOK. Regular mustad hooks will bend out with even
a 4 lb fish, so find a HEAVY DUTY WIRE HOOK!
4. A deep diving Crank Bait. like a Bill Norman lure. anything
that runs to 20' deep.
ok, that is the recipee, here are the instructions.
Tie the swivel to the line from your reel. Tie the 2 leaders
to the swivel. Tie the Deep diving Crank to the longest leader,
and the sassy shad to the short leader.
TROLL FAST! If you're trolling at just above idle
speed, GO HOME! It won't work! Stripers and Wipers Like FAST
MOVING SHAD!!! Shad dont sit and wait for the predator fish to
come along and eat them. They SWIM FOR THEIR LIVES!!!! So kick
it up abit! Troll about twice as fast as usual, and HANG ON TO
YOUR RODS!!! haha It is really a very very fun way to catch lots
of LARGE fish! Virtually everything in the lake feeds on shad,
and I have caught absolutely everyspecies of fish in the lake
on this system. from 30lb buffalo, 22lb carp, 15lb Channel cat,
Flathead, White perch, CRAPPIE, largemouth bass, Walleye, and
I cant even begin to count the Stripers, Wipers, and White Bass.
HUNDREDS!!! I even caught a 2 lb SHAD! ok, i snagged it.. but
i still caught it on my system! haha Man, I wish I was selling
OK, now you all know what the 3 way is. USE IT! and PLEASE be
kind and courteous to other boats on the water. If you see someone
yankin in fish on a submerged hump, Fish with them not against
them! dont just get on top of the fish they are catching and
anchor, or troll in front of them!
Fish hang on the underwater humps, there are quite afew of these
placed between M&M point and the dam, and also straught out
off of Wichita point and between Wichita Point and the Refuge.
GOOD LUCK ALL!
