The Snapper Snack® is best fished with a thin strip of bait to maintain the natural swimming action of the skirt. Fresh squid and thin strips of baits are a great choice. Just make sure the barbs of the hooks are well exposed.
Don’t strike when you feel a fish bite, just lift your rod tip steadily and start a slow wind. Snapper Snack® rigs use inline recurve KLT® hooks which will self-hook, usually in the corner of the mouth.
When you know you have a fish on, just wind in steadily and slowly. You might score a second fish while close to the bottom as Snapper Snacks® are a two hook rig and ‘double headers’ were very common during tackle testing.
Tie your sinker close to the bottom hook. This will ensure that your baits are as close to the sea floor as possible. Snapper and a lot of other species feed on the bottom so having your bait close to the bottom is essential.
