Suitable for any heavy duty fishing requirements, but particularly suited for use when making Jig Assist Hook rigs, Swimerz Heavy Duty Jigging Hooks are an inline solid steel hook that is highly rust resistant and black nickel coated. There are just as many hook combinations as there are jigs and because of this, you need to select the right one for the job.
Keep in mind that a small hook in a heavy gauge steel is very hard to straighten because of the leverage points in its design construction. A size 1/0 Heavy Duty Jigging Hook doesn’t look like it would catch a 20kg kingfish but they do. If you are fishing a medium line class jigging outfit, say 5 – 7kg, and fishing 2kg of drag, than you can get away with a relatively small and light gauge hook. On the opposite side of the coin, you couldn’t run that same hook set up on a 40kg line class jig rod with 12kg of drag.
Assembling your own Jig Assist Hooks will enable you to fine tune your tackle, increasing your fishing pleasure and results.
