Well, let's see what the fish think. They're the ones you have to impress.

I am personally not a fan of snap swivels for hooks.

personally I like to keep things simple without overthinking rig options. I use a santee cooper rig, three way rig and slip cork rig, if I cant catch fish on any of those three then it was not my day. the important thing is the bait that you are using to get the fish to bite. your rig will get a bite if you are using the right bait but if you are lucky to get a nice fish on and you are fishing where there is structure whether it is rocks, logs, brush or heavy weeds then you have increased your chances of getting hung up and broken off and losing all that tackle. give it a shot and if it works for you then good for you, sometimes you have to figure things out using trial and error. good luck to you and hope you can get some good fish.

Looks like it's 3 times as likely to get hung up and end up on the bottom of the lake. You already have mono, swivels, hooks, and sinkers. You already have what you need to make usable rigs. Don't over think it.

Looks good. Just an idea, I might try putting a float on the last snap swivel to float the baits off the bottom.

Got yourself a catfish rig there. If you have trouble hooking up, you might ditch the snap swivel and learn to smell your hooks. Let us know.

When you smell your hooks don't put them too close to your nose tho might end up with a new piercing roflmao
