Question by michelle. Uploaded on March 20, 2009
An old trick is to use a "Limerick" style hook which has a large eye, an eye large enough to slip over the eye of the other hook. A small piece of rubber or plastic tubing slipped over the bend of the hook holds the stinger in place.
That said, I was having a problem one day with speckled trout short striking on plastc grubs. I had neither of the above. I took a treble hook off of a crank bait and used a short section of mono and a clinch knot to tie the treble hook to the bend of the jig hook. I then buried one barb of the treble in the tail of the grub. Problem solved. Each sea trout there after was neatly hooked right on the end of the nose!
That is how i do it
use a uni not
pull up the tag end but not the main line
Agreed with Beekeeper answer above and A + 1 for you sir!!!
