Hello, I was wondering if anybody knows if there is a 3/0 hook that will fit in Do-It’s Midwest Finesse Jig mold? I personally use the 1/0 Owner 5313 hooks but a customer asked if a 3/0 would fit. Thought you all would know best, thanks in advance! -Alec
The hottest thing going here in the Ozarks (clearish water impoundments) is the "Ned Rig", a 1/16 - 1/8 oz worm nose jig with #2 hook. Put 1/2 of an Elaztech Zinker Z on this and fish it as a Do-Nothing with a bow in the line. I cut the keeper off the jig so the bait snugs up to the back of the head. A drop of Locktite Gel Control Superglue holds the bait to the head. The jig's lead keeper actually inhibits holding the Elaztech bait in place, so removing that helps. Elaztech has so much salt that hooks will rust badly so pre-rigging too many ahead of time can end up being wasteful. I have making these for a couple guides and as requested from friends. I can hardly make them fast enough. My mold is modified to use wire weed guards. Some like those & some don't. I found that my home poured stik-baits work just fine, but that Elaztech is almost indestructible and will catch a LOT of fish without replacement. In my experience, this little thing catches every type fish, but an inordinate number of small ones.
