is that what makes Satan's Gut?
My dad put together several baby Js in 1970 for a main fork salmon run. Not sure if he came up with the idea himself or if he saw it somewhere. I was only 16 and was just happy to be there. We didn't have the center 1/2 tube, just the two outside Js. I will have to dig up some pictures.A 27' with no outriggers should go just about as low as a 2 1/2 snout "baby J".
I would say any flow below 3k is too low.
For those who asked: A "baby J' is a snout rig with a smaller frame and a half a tube between the two outside tubes. It is about 23'-24' long. I belive John or Mitch Willams came up with the design in the 70's.
Thanks, I probably knew this once, but now use the names interchangeably.KiKii, we would take the outside tubes from an s-rig 20' in length with a row frame and those are called a snout rig Baby J has a short middle tube.
