you haven't been able to find much? If you go to the bottom of the crabbing page and type snood in the search you will get at least 79 pages of results. Anyway my snoods hang down between 8 and 11 inches.

Cut the bungee into 14" lengths and tie one knot at one end and two knots spaced 1/2" to 1" apart at the other end.
The end with one knot gets attached to the main line. A short piece of rubber hose gets added to the other end to make the loop.
Keep searching on this board for pictures. There are plenty.

If you are searching using T R O U T instead of T R O T, that may be your problem.

OK I'm going to make a trot line with snoods. I purchased the 1/8" bungee and the nylon line. I still need to buy the tubing that the snood loops through, the lady at the Commercial Crabbing Supplies on Miller Island said that people use surgical tubing. My question is should I get 1/4" inside diameter or 3/16"[excited]
Appreciate help that you usually give here oh the board.

If you bought the 1/8" bungee you will want to go to Lowe's and purchase their 3/16 fuel hose. The fuel line works the best. Lowe's has 3/16 for .77 per foot.

Thanks C-Hawk 18, I will go to Lowes. When you say fuel line do you mean gasoline fuel line for a car?[sad]
Thanks for your response.

Yes - fuel line like you use on a car. The Lowe's in white Marsh has it on the bottom of their "hose" rack. I was given a snood line that had the clear hose on the snoods but I would loose approx 10% of the baits each time. I went to the fuel hose, at RJ's suggestion, and now lose very few baits.

Thanks again C-Hawk 18, I'll go to Loews tomorrow in Laurel.
