I got bored now as my offshore seabass trip tomorrow got canceled due to weather. As Eastern Tackle talked about Assist Hook Rigging, I am talking about Non-asssist Hook Rigging just for fun. I am rebellious in nature. As most guys are interested in assist hooks and they make thorough research and experimentaion on assist hook, I decided to spend my time to study and experiment old reliable single hooks and treble hooks for tuna jigging. Here are pictures of three different hooks. One is welded Owner treble hook and the others are 8/0 Gamatastu Siwashi hook and 11/0 Jigging Master hook. Welded treble hook a kind of new experimentation instead of using a split ring to reduce the line catch by the hook. The Jigging Master 11/0 hook is originally for the use of assist hook, but I felt it could be an excellent hook as an single hook at the tail of jigs cause it is extremely sharp and strong, and the gap is as wide as 8/0 Gamatatsu Siwash hook which is very popular among tuna jig fishermen on the East Coast. I used an Owner split ring to connect the swievel of the jig and the hook, but I am not comfortable with it. I am thinking about opening the eye of JM hook and attach to the swievel directly. But the final decison will be made by tuna, not by me.
