Whats tour favorite snapper rig?

Postby smile0784 » Sat Aug 25, 2018 7:17 am

Time has to start preparing gear for incoming snapper season.
Got to look amd all the rods and reels and oil up what i need to after a 3 month lay up.

Just wondering what rigs people use for sanpper?
Do people prefer the snapper snatchers?
Or
Run a sinker slider on main line then a swivel and then run a 1+mt trace to your hook?

Or what do you use?

My favourite snapper rig has a snapper on it :rofl:

but really I just use a sliding sinker rig to a swivel with 1 - 1.2 meter leader - early season 2 - 5/0 j hook snelled about 6 - 7 cm apart with a thin strip bait
tends to hook up better on slow bites
later season when they become better on the chew I go back to Circles

and I dont tend to use snapper snachers just plain hooks

I use a bit of both. In the past the snapper snatchers have caught me plenty and so have a double snelled rig with a small ball sinker :)
