I was thinking about writing a reminder newsletter article, but I missed the cut-off, on head shot treble hooks on swim shads and tubes. Three of the four fish I landed so far this season have come on swim shads and every one was hooked on the head shot treble hook I added to the swim shad. The attached picture shows how I set it up with one point stuck in the back of the swim shad and a separate split ring to attach the hook to the leader snap.
Scott..that would have made a great article! You can't argue with success & you've got the numbers to prove it.
Scott what size/make treble do you like the best?
I like best a short shank 2x strength 4/0 hook which fits very nicely with the front single hook. The hook in the picture is a little smaller, but it was the closest that I have at the house all the hooks I have of that size are on my boat. I have not used the frog hooks as I find that having the treble hooked into the bait reduces the instances of the hook fouling with the leader to almost none.
