No three ways and no high hooks unless you want dogs. Just a low pre-leadered hook on a belmar rig is the most common. You also have slider rigs and snafu rigs and they have their moments. 3/0-5/0 gami octos and 4/0-6/0 owner octos are the most common hooks along with size 4 virginias.

Lots of topics when you search tog rigs. Best to limit it to this forum as we're the shiznit section of all things tog.

Does anyone in NJ know the tog rig used on the Big Mohawk? The Brutus looking guy always shows me but keep forgetting to write it down. Single hook. Very simple rig.

Anyone know how it's tied?

Actually, I did. Maybe it was Tim's drawing, but after looking at it again I just now realized that is the rig they used (the one on the Right). Thanks.

They call that a Snafu rig? Works great and I will not use anything else. Very easy to make and I like how it holds out the hook.

No, the rig on the right hand side of the picture is called a Belmar rig. It was originated on the Mohawk.

Here's the link to the snafu rig that Gottog put up:

Totally different rig used for 2 hooks in one crab used later in the season looking for bigger fish.

I'm pretty sure that rig was created way before the Mohawk was even built Snafu too.

I use snafu all the time. Early, late season, whole crab, halves. Very versatile rig. Sometime a single hook, sometimes a slider.

Why do people assume the Snafu is used for 2 baits in one crab, or for bigger baits, or later in the season? It's used for Porgy and Sea Bass as well as for Blackfish, whether using clams in the Spring, or green crabs all Fall/Winter.

2 hooks in one crab..

I use it all the time also, but mostly with two halves of the same crab, or two halves of different crabs...or two different size pieces. Lets me know what they like that day.
