Thread: Any specific regs for saltwater snagging?

  1. #1

    Default Any specific regs for saltwater snagging?

    Hook size, #, that sort of thing? Just curious, figured I'd try some different rigging for the Seward reds this June.

    No restrictions on hooks as far as I know. As far as what to use; you can't beat the original!

    Yup, I have, and have used those. What I was thinking of doing was tying a couple 12 to 18 inches apart.
    Again, in Seward in June...where everyone else is snagging.

    Just make sure you don't use more than two hooks. Page 4, Sport fishing gear.

    Thanks fishgod. So would it be your understanding that 2 of those weighted trebles tied inline would be legal?
    Mind you, snagging those reds isn't my favorite thing to do, but I'd like to get in and out and on to better things Seems like a double rig would be more effective.

    Regs say, 1 spoon, plug spinner or series of spinners, OR 2 hooks or 2 flies per rod. So, ya, by the book, you could run 2 of those. It doesn't state what type of hooks in the general regs. Make sure you read the area specifi regs for wherever you're fishing.
    Life's to short for an ugly boat
