Re: wacky hook

The Owner k hook is by far the best i found, i always use a rubber o-ring on all my wacky rigging to give more clearance to the hooks and save baits of course. I use the no 2 for lighter line and the 1/0 for heavier line and i make my own weed guard with 50lb mono. ;)

Re: Matching trailers or not?

A green pumpkin jig with a bull frog colored trailer is an other exemple when i try to match a perch or bluegill. :-k I tend to match a little more when i fish ult...

Re: Straight shank hook or EWG for light line?

A buddy I know swears by the Offset Shank O'Shaunessy Bend hooks. Claims the slimmer profile allows for a better hookset without the possibility of the EWG's tendency to flip sideways when bit. Don't know, but he out fishes me with them. ](*,) This is the exact hook I was going to recommend, I use ...
