ultra minnow salt water bucktail jigs

Recommended Posts

I make ultra minnow bucktail jigs used regular jig hooks. I seen a fishing video recommending swing hooks on backtail jigs. Not sure what materials would be used inside the jig to provide a means of attaching a hook. Appreciate any help, thanks, walt

You need a mold that accepts eyelets where the hook would normally come out.

An eyelet for the line tie and another for the hook.

You can either add the hook onto the eyelet before casting or use a split ring to add it after depending on how you want them.

You can use the brass eyelets but I only use stainless ones.

I prefer the long stainless ones when they fit.

You can buy a custom mold made this way or possibly modify an existing mold.

Here's a mold to cast what your wanting.


And here are the eyelets.
