    What is the best size of treble to rig shibuki v186-80g & v159-50g & does anyone use swivels on the nose:confused:

    Hooks: Use 200lb split rings to attach 3/0 extra strong trebels
    I use a solid ring through a split ring to the nose for quick change

    I have gone thru 2 shibuki lures. I have used assist hooks and have not had any problems missing any fish. The assist hooks I feel keep good plug action. The only problem I have with the lure is that the barracuda absolutely love the lure. Now when I fish these lures I donot cast randomly,but onlly to the tuna that are blowing up on the surface. I keep a rod handy with a shibuki and wait till the surface action starts then start casting. One thing I have learned is that if you miss a bite let the lure lay still for a second or two . I have tuna come back and actully swallow the lure.

    i use st66 3/0 for the v186 and 2/0 for the v159.
    using the right hooks give you a better lure action.
    concerning the nose a use a split ring attached to a solid ring.
