What's this hook system call?

Rate this topic

I saw it on a video, but basically you snell a hook, then you slide another hook on top of the snelled one then goes to the main line so that you have 2 hooks on the leader to hook onto the crab. 

 

I couldn't see the rest clearly and it is not a snafu hook which you do tie both hooks.

Sweatheart. At least that's when the hooks are aligned so they sit point to point on the leader.

I always aligned them parallel...and used 2 peices of crabs, or even 2 small whole crabs.  With the larger white or green i would stick a single crab with both hooks.  I was never about increasing my chances of hooking a fish with 2 hooks.  I found if you couldn't catch one with a single then a 2 hook rig didn't help you much.  having 2 hooks made bait choices more flexible to the fish and it was on me to figure out the flavor of the day.

I add a second hook to jigs. Like Adrian, not looking to hook a fish with two hooks. I'm so bad at the jig bite that I need second chances!

It is called a slider rig-and useful when the Bite is finicky or very light, small piece of crab, on each Hook.

Stinger

Yes, or slider on top of the jig like we were fishing one day with chris, which is easier to de hook the shorts.

I stopped using the Stinger, or snelled leader to the Jig, up in RI, was a huge PIA , LOL cause when they hit the Jig the stinger was also hooking them in the head, the eye, the side, and if it was a good fish, the stinger always got caught in the net another huge PIA.

 In RI they ripped the rod outta your hand !!! 

I was getting cocky, with the stinger on the Jig, so much so, that when I felt the Initial thump, I lifted the rod slightly, felt a little resistance, and Bam set the hook. After the first day, I stopped using the stinger , as stated above.Down here I will use it.

Someone last year that they moved of the slider because it puts a lot of pressure on the snelled hook and it could pop on a good fish. 

I go back and forth depending on the day.

That's a bigdeal Dik thing, too.  In addition to Slayer.

 

I've only heard it as a Slider.  Stinger to me is putting another hook off the bottom of a jig or tied to the first hook, like with a long strip bait.
