The Double Hook Bottom Rig is a popular bottom fishing rig for saltwater anglers. While this rig may take a little bit of time to set up, it has plenty of strength to wrestle big snapper and grouper to the boat. By using this rig compared to a double hook drop shot rig, the leaders coming off the 3-way swivel to the hook is what makes this rig stand out. When fishing with live bait, you are giving your bait a short leash to swim around and entice a bite from something big. With live bait, this rig will help you entice more strikes than the double hook drop shot rig.
