I saw some guys snagging at the dam the other day so i went home got my dads Shakespeare Alpha rod (12') and i went to Academy got some 50Lb Braid, 5oz Sinkers, And 10/0 Hooks. I went later that night, while i was there no one caught anything at all but i did snag on a what looked like a Spoonbill but it snapped my line it was pretty big because it was pulling me towards the water. Shakespeare Alpha Rod Goliath Reel (I think) 5oz Sinker 2 10/0 Hooks 9 inches apart 100LB Braid Line Also should i get weaker line because about 1/7th of the time you cast out you're going to snag onto other things besides fish? When you cast out should i let the bank sinker sink for a second or 2 or just start jerking as soon as it hits the water. Is there a certain way to tie the treble hooks to the line. Thanks a lot, Ive never snagged before.
