BLACKFISH JIGS- THE RIGHT HOOKS?

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

Seeking info from the group that pours their own Blackfish Jigs please

 

Blackfish Jigs

I have the Do-It Flat Head Jig Molds  (1.5, 2, 2.5 oz mold)  and the (3, 4oz)

Also using the Banana Jig Mold (3/4, 1, 1.5, 2oz mold)

 

For hooks I have been using:

Eagle Claw # 635 size 7/0

and

Mustad 32786BLN  size 6/0

 

I gave several to friend and he had these hooks straighten out on blackfish.

 

Curious to know what hooks, model # and size hooks guys are using in either these molds or for their blackfish jigs.

 

Thanks

The ones that come on the Tog Jigs I use are:  Mustad #3407, 34184 or 91715, depending on the size. Never had a problem.  

Take a look at Tinman's post on the Commercial BST forum here.

If you need a 60 degree hook, a few hooks that might work would be Mustad 32786 (x-heasvy wire) or mustad 32824 (xx heavy wire). Gamakatsu makes a 294 thats a nice hook too. as far as size goes 3/0-4/0 seems to be the most popular. There are several videos that show how to easily modify molds to accommodate different hooks. For 90 degree hooks you might try Mustad 32833 or Gamakatsu 604. Lurepartsonline sells hooks in 10-25 packs so you can try several different hooks without spending a fortune. Good luck
