Big hooks and baits

Post by Jim Davisson » April 19th, 2016, 4:13 pm

To limit the possibility of a big hook turning back into a nose hooked bait or to keep it in a good position when shoulder hooking jacks snell the hook with 50# mono and cut it off at the eye. Force it down to the right spot and resnell or tie it with the appropriate line/leader for the hook style. Cheers
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
