define small snappers (smaller than 5 inches)
try a good hook rig with number 4 long shank aberdeen/crappie hooks
on 4 foot rig with droppler loops, loop 5-6 of these small hooks with an inch of red/white drinking straw or a coffee stirrer of the same length.
attach a sinker at the end.
cast it out and jig the rig around
a larger version of this rig with 2/0 gold hooks well well in the carolinas jigging for bluefish up to 15 inches (i have caught blues as small as 6 inches on these rigs) and Spanish mackerel
