3/8 Poison Tail Jig

Recommended Posts

Need some help please. Started pouring the poison tail w/ owner twist lock hooks and seem to be missing lots of fish on the hook set. I am swimming this 100% of the time.

Fish pick up the bait and when I set the hook the jig comes flying out of the water. Hook up ratio is about 60/40 for the good. Haven't tried any other hooks. Any recommendations on hooks?

Thanks in advance...

I don't understand your missed hooksets issue?  Are you T-rigging the plastics using the keeper coil to pin the nose of the baits?  If so, misses are to be expected, & if not in my experience open hook EWG does miss slightly more hooksets than straight point parallel to shank.
