Anyone Developed a Weedless Underspin Yet?

4 posts in this topic

I've been toying with various configurations of swimbait hooks and Zoom  flukes or the Swimmin Super Flukes, but there's nothing I'd want to show yet - they're a mess, truthfully.  

Has anyone come up with an underspin that's as weedless as a Zoom fluke rigged on a weighted swimbait hook?  In fact, that's what I'm really looking for - add an underspin on a swimbait hook near the "Z" bend.

I've seen some homebuilt underspins with a jig weedguard, but it won't work well for me unless it's rigged with the hook point skinned just below the plastic surface.  The lakes I fish in Oklahoma have numerous Christmas trees that weren't thinned out before sinking them.  Even the new Do-It Brush jigs get hung bad enough that I can't pop 'em loose with the bow trick.   

Just thinking out loud.  It's going to require a pretty significant hook modification with resources I don't have.  Thanks for reading this.

If i want to add a blade to a offset wide gap hook I use fly tying thread and tie a metal loop near the head and put a swivel blade on it. also i would recommend looking at owners ultrahead series of jigs, they would take the addition of a blade quite well.

Thanks Jon P..  I just found this, so my apologies for an extremely late reply to say thanks.  I'll try what you suggested. I guess there are far more waters that an open hook can be thrown in than I imagined.  After fishing in Louisiana, Alabama and Oklahoma the past 33 years, I can't use them in any of the waters I fish.  Too much cover.  But, I like it that way.
