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.
