Need A17 Diamond Jig Upgrade Recommendations

Big fish bent the hook on A17 diamond jig with colored tube on me in the past. The hooks they come with aren't strong enough in my opinion. Can't ignore how effective they are. They cast far and catch fish. Anyone have examples or recommendations on how to beef up an A17 diamond jig? Thanks

You can put a heavier hook on but you'll lose the action.  The Mustad #31022 kirbed Limerick hook is made specifically for that type lure.  No one else makes one like it.

I found substituting the Limerick with a Octopus via a split ring increased my hook-up ratio noticeably.

I’ll look into those options. Thanks. Took a mustad 7/0 3407 and attached it with a spro 90 lb test split ring. I’ll try this and see how it looks in the water.
