Anyone know where I can buy snagging hooks (weighted trebles)? Seems like I could find them everywhere years ago and now people look at me like I have 3 heads when I ask for them. TIA.

Red Top had quite a few the other day. They had several sizes, which is good since the larger sizes work best on feral cats. :brow

Glad I saved my old ones, they came in handy this year. There's something to be said for being a pack rat :brow .

Sometimes a treble with an egg sinker or a big rubber core clipped to the line just above it will work in a pinch.

Here's an 'ol Monument Beach snagging trick.

Place a 3/4oz bank of Jersey sinker on the end of a 3' piece of mono. 1 foot above the sinker, attach via a dropper hitch a 1/0 treble hook, 1 foot above that attach one 1/0 treble the same way. At the end tie on a barrel swivel.
Under most conditions this rig will work better than most snag hooks. :brow
