In order to throw an a-rig on my lake I can only use 3 hooks. What is the best way to rig these baits without a hook?  If I use 1/8th ounce hooks/ heads will I need to put an 1/8th ounce weight on the other baits to balance the rig? What is the best way to go about this. Really isnt my rig of choice and I would rather not by the wrong equipment.

I would rather have more baits but I will take a look at that.

Spinnerbait blades or get a 3 arm one with spinnerbait blades on the arms.

I dont think the balance matters as much if I put the weighted jig heads on the bottom and use a keeper on the other baits

There are also dummy weights which you can tie on as well. Weight and no hook.

If you have the baits all the same weight the Rig will want to spin in the water, So for a keel weight use one1/4 oz head on the middle bait so it stays upright in the water. or you could just use smaller baits on the top if you are using a 5 or 7 wire rig

We are only allowed three hooks here in MO so I put 2 small willowleaf blades on the top two arms.  If you get blades too large the A rig will want to come to the top and act sort of like a buzz bait..

 

This pic is one that I sometimes use for white bass, thus the small baits.  Note how little the willows are.
