Awesome video, nice drums, & cool pcv setup. Looks like the two bait rig works really well, I might have to try it. Was that last fish caught on a swedish abu 7000? I like that matching color mono mag on it. Got to love TCD. One of the best bait shops right there, your vehicle is your tackle box, & you can get in it if bad weather arrives. Tight lines.

A couple of nice legal size drum there. The BIG ones are out there too and thru March. Speaking of March, the Rusty Hook Fishing Club will be holding it's annual BD Tourney about the 3rd weekend in March. Fri-mid Sunday. Usually about a $25 entry fee. Weighin's will be at Boyd's. Great tourney. They are probably near the 40th year mark now!!
I mean no disrespect here but using two baits like that isn't necessary plus it gets expensive. #2. I use a heavy Carolina rigged setup with those spider weights and only use half the crab. Save the claws for extra bait too. They work. By using a Carolina rig, you can take the eye of the hook with bait on and and hang it on one of the spider weights "legs". This helps the cast plus a little extra insurance the bait is not slung off !! #3. The rod setup like that is OK. If it was me making those things, especially the one on the left, I'd drop those rod holders down and add some 6 to 8" tubing to each one. #4. I never trusted that type of snap swivel. The little "hook" on the swivel tends to pull loose. Try some Coast Lock snap swivels. Rant's over. BTW..you just may want to use those finger mullet to catch a stray flounder close to the rocks. Hook them thru the lips or thru the eyes.

I appreciate the feedback, I had been fishing with 3 rods for decades and was using a Carolina rig just got tired of only having 1 option 1 line. I have always been after bulls not drum so I went with mullet but now I can do both in one cast. I was already looking at upgrading the snaps my leaders still have some room for improvement. Just want to put something on a good price point but still functional.
The bait casting rod holder I am going to build a second and go wider but the extra tubing I don’t think it’s necessary because of his quick I can pull the rod off to set the hook

But I do appreciate the feed back
