The Snapper can be used with 22- to 50-inch fiberglass rods, graphite rods and composite rods with very little effort. Here’s how it works.
Use The Snapper with rods of varying lengths by adjusting the black knob on the top of The Snapper. This allows you to fine tune the rod to the exact bend you want. The stabilizer also moves when the top black knob is loose. Just swing it open to the position you want, and then tighten the knob.
The small black knob at the top by the rod holder adjusts an aluminum plate that controls the angle of the aluminum rod holder tube. This allows you to get more or less hookset out of the fishing pole and adjusts for different rod lengths.
The black knob on the side allows you to move the rod holder from the stored position to the in-use position. When you have the rod holder in the position you want, just tighten the knob so it stays tight.
Take out the trigger system by grabbing the trigger shaft and standing up the spring steel so the trigger can be used.
You can also adjust the tension needed for the fish to release the fishing rod to set the hook. Simply take the tool that is included with The Snapper and bend the pin away from the reel so the fish can trip off the rod more easily. Bend it toward the reel to make it harder for the fish to trip off the fishing rod. The trigger pin can be adjusted to let you use larger baits, like 10-inch suckers and crappies for bigger fish.
A pin bobber is supplied with the Snapper. The bobber will significantly increase your hooking percentages, and we recommend you use it. When you use the bobber, you can let the fish have anywhere from 0 to 2 feet of pure slack line, so the fish can swim away from the hole with no resistance. This lets the fish feel more comfortable, and it may take the bait in its mouth faster and move away from the hole, giving you the best opportunity to have the hook in the fish’s mouth before the fishing rod sets the hook. We’ve found the bobber to be a very effective part of the system, and we think it should be used. The bobber is designed with pins in it to stop it from blowing around in windy conditions.
