I would stay away from coated wire since it might be too visible to the fish. Also, when you insert the hooks in the bait, first hook goes up thru the jaw and out the top of the head (this is for ribbon fish), for the rest of the hooks, lay the ribbon fish out flat and then lay the rest of the rig hooks down along the body and identify where the hook should penetrate the next spot, insert that hook thru the body and out the other side, then do the same thing for the last hook. The idea is to insert the hooks allowing the fish to stay straight/flat. If you don't, the fish will be bowed and unnatural looking. Use extra strong hooks. I had a huge king on a few years back at Tall Rock and it broke all three hooks at the bend, they gotta be strong!! Attach the rig to the main line with a minimum 150# rated snap swivel or take the time to avoid the snap swivel by using a plain barrel swivel in black. No weak points because the king will find it!!
