Snapper flasher rig Tips And Baits

Snapper flasher rigs are a great fishing rig to fish for snapper and a range of fish species  .Here i will explain how to use the rig . When Using the fishing rig  it is important you bait the rig correctly or you will struggle to get a bite .The bait should be  hooked so there is as little  resistance against the snapper flasher rig  in currents and dosent spin your Bait  . The whole idea is to get the bait to sit straight in the current , if your bait is spinning  it will not look natural and it simple will not work . i find a squid strip bait hook through onces works a treat   But a pilchard Piece is even better because of its oil content .

Tips for Catching a snapper when Fishing

When You catch your snapper or any fish on the rig  i must stress this point NEVER EVER lift your fish in by the leader , alway use a net to aviod tackle faliure or fish falling off your hooks . The leader may be rated to 60lbs but the Knots weaken the line and  there is simply no way around it with paternoster rigs  , just using your brain when your fishing can go a long way , ive seen some people do some silly things and its pretty funny i might add. seeing a massive fish beside the boat only to see someone loose it because of something  so silly you cant help to laugh becuse it could have been avioded . You might get away with your  bad habits but  once in awhile  but you will pay the pipper one day !!! just net the dam  fish .
The Other thing you want to make sure is your drag is not locked and is set to just under a kilo ( .750grams ) of drag pressor  Which is a far amount .  Also check your Knots and leaders even if you buy them pre-rigged its a must  and a simple check can go along way . The Other thing is never reuse the fishing rig or snapper snatchers after fishing
