    snell both hooks on the line is the best way I have found to do it.

    That depends on how far apart you tie the hooks

    If most are only 5 feet deep or so then i would space the hooks about 15 inches apart at the most with say 36 inches of leader so after you tie them and trim the excess you should end up with about a 30 inch leader. 15 inches from swivel to hook 1 then 15 inches from hook 1 to hook 2 and just have the bobber about a foot from the swivel. Unless you just tie them like i said above on the end of the line and stick the bobber on there. Gives you one kinda near the bottom and one a little ways up. Just my .02. Good luck!

    I would simply tie the first hook onto the end of my line/leader, then tie a dropper loop above that and attach the second hook to it. That's the way I attach my crappie jigs for catching skipjack.
