I've been successfully using it as my teaser for several weeks now. Works well with Lep's B/S rig using sinker on bottom, rather than the jig. This way the snags over the ruff stuff are minimized. Bringing some with me next week to NanFlukeit, Massachusetts.Going to be tough for a fluke to get past this rig. Looks very nice. I'm guessing this will be your teaser? Might have to keep it away from the Wreck and Rubble Gods. They salivate over rigs like this. I used to fish this type of rig except I used a treble hook as the front hook and hung whatever type of meat from one of the hooks. I used a stinger when my chosen bait allowed for it. I still use the treble hook teaser setup for tilefish.
Who knows? When a Fluke throws your hook, is it due to a short bite or wrong leverage on their head shakes? The swing hook should be able cushion those head shakes, especially on those biguns....Do you notice a difference with the swing hooks? I bought some of the Skinner swing hook bucktails to try out.
Thanks for the photo but I am puzzled Hartattack.Hey Capt Mike, they're made on Long Island, info attached. Bill also pours the swing-hook jigs that I've been using and loving this summer
