Re: Do you have any tips to reduce snags?
If you're fishing the 3 rivers, your bait may not be staying put. Fishing local rivers for cats from shore I use a minimum 2oz doughnut shaped bank sinker. If I'm casting out very far, the river is high, or have a large live bait on, I'll go up to 3 or 4 ounces. Also when fishing rivers from the bank, make all of your casts in a down stream direction. This will help keep current from pushing your bait into a snag. All assuming you're bank fishing in a river, of course.
