Double rigging for slow trolling for crappie

Here is how I tie my rigs. Learned it from John Woods. Anybody do this different?

I use a barrel swivel instead of a 3-way. I make my main line 6" longer and when I tie it to the swivel I leave the tag from the knot about 6" long to tie the top hook to. I've always been told the less number of knots you have, the better off you are. Plus the barrel swivels are a little cheaper. My weights and line length are the same as Mr John's. Also, the deeper I fish, the bigger the weight. Anything shallower than 8', I use a 1/4 oz egg and sometimes a 1/16 jig head on bottom. Most of the time it's just 2 Lazer Sharp Eagle Claw offset sz 1 hooks.

When I fish deeper water I make my main drop line 48 inches from the the 3-way to the hook. and about 6 inches of line on the top hook. If I fish shallow water I make my main line shorter. Woods
