I prefer 1/4" medium or softlay with 5-32 snoods every 5'. If I am using clam bags I bait them every 10'.

Every 10' because those snoods are hard for your little fingers unbait and you're CHEAP!  Grin

Thanks Jeff.  I'll make whatever people ask for.  The 5/32 is just my preference.  Wink

[/quote]I am presently experimenting with the use of SNOODS made with 1/8" bungee cord and 3/16" fuel hose.  QUESTIONS:  what length to cut the bungee for securing the cut turkey neck in the single ring nets and the length (IF DIFFERENT) for use on my 2 7-ft.rebar anchored (driven into the bottom sand) and 200' trot-line setup?  THE MAINLINE...200' (#60 tarred nylon) line is stretched from rebar to rebar...then that line is baited every 4'-5'.  How are the snoods then "tied to the crab net bait-line and also onto the trotline???

HOPING FOR SOME EXPERIENCED INFO/SUGGESTIONS...Thank you....John Castelluccio, Jr.

Snoods are tied on with a clove hitch. No hog rings to fray line or tear up hands that way.

Slickcam, I run 3800 ft and i can bait pretty heavy and just use 1 bag clams. I run same clams next day and ice them down when i pull lines, they catch pretty good next day. I do hor ring all my snoods ,lees time and my hands only touch the line when baiting.

On your trot line you can knot the end of your snood and secure it with a slip knot in your main line.
In your ring net you would secure the snood LOOP loosely to the bottom of your net with a plastic electrical tie wrap. The snood loop in the trap must be free to move around the tie wrap in order to bait and unbait properly.

The cut length of the bungee before the snood is made should be 11 and a half inchs long for both trot line and ring net.

Try a few on your line to see if they make a difference. They are a lot more work and may not be worth it.
