Never felt the need to add a trailer hook for bass, blues or weakfish.  If the fish is worth hooking, it's going to find the single hook.  Fluke can be a different story.

 

Adding plastic or, if you can find it, pork rind can be beneficial.  But sometimes an unadorned bucktail works best.

Take the extra hook you want to use and with a pair of Dykes, cut where the eye touches back to the shank.

This opens that gap just enough to slide the eye (w/ some twisting) over the hook and barb.

With a pair of pliers, close back that eye of the new stringer hook.

What’s fat cow jigging strips  lol

These, they're basically synthetic pork rinds. I like them a lot but I still keep a stock of old school uncle josh on hand for special occasions :rav:

I mainly use straight and curly tail rubber worms on bucktails anymore. I too have a stash of uncle josh. Once the stopped making the pork, I never tried the substitutes. Alot of areas all I ever used was plastics anyway. I do miss being able to buy uncle josh tho.

Yeah I use them as a trailer on bucktails, same as you would use a grub or porkrind.
