what is snagging?,never heard of it till today.
hooking a fish anywhere other than the mouth, usually using treble hooks
First off don't try this anywhere until you are familar with your fishing regs, as many places snagging is illegal or they have very strict conditions/locations where you can do it.
But it is the only method to harvest a Spoonbill (Paddlefish), like the one in my avatar. Basically you need a heavy pole with decent line, a huge (like an 8/0 to 10/0) treble hook, and a heavy weight (4 oz to 2 pounds).
Anyway you cast your line out or let it spool out if by boat, and once you get a good contact with the weight to the bottom of the river/lake, you make a huge swooping motion with the rod, dragging that treble across the bottom, hoping to make contact and snag a fish.
