Junior Swimmer Hooks Tangle

Rate this topic

12 posts in this topic

I was doing well with the Junior last night but every other cast was coming in w/ the two belly hooks joined.

I removed the rear belly hook and my hook up ratio went way down. I switched to the rear belly and the bite had died. Advice?

Cut 1 hook from each treble, making them "double" hooks... or make the rear one a larger single... possibly with a teaser tied on it... just MO...

MDM,

 

 

use VCM's size 2/0 and your problem will leave.

 

you may have to lose the splits too,try it with them first then go from there!

My 1st Danny try and I have the same issue with the potential for a tangle. Gotta move the rear back another 1/2 inch.

 

Surprised a plug you bought is like that though? Maybe that is just the nature of plugs? IDK...I'm too new to all this. redface.gif

Dropped the rings and cut the hooks and we're golden. Just got in from fishing a calm windless bay , put the Junior on and....Fish on. Thanks for all the reply's.
