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.

Castaic makes a 3 arm rig.
I would rather have more baits but I will take a look at that.

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

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

Spinner blades will make it like a giant spinnerbait. that would be awesome

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.
