Just posted a rare reply to a WSF thread :rollineyes:

Concerning inline hooks for plugs I am going to try these this year on my bass lures;

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Gamakatsu-Sin...emQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item518eea0a05

Inline eye and make sure the hook points forward otherwise it will be masked ...

May be worth matching the weight of the trebles and bear in mind the lure action will be altered - for good or for worse I dunno ...

I use singles in varying cfg's on my tropical lures - after losing a few fish this year after hookup and seeing Tom's lunker come off I am hoping single's will give a better hook hold ... oh and maybe a little less damage to the fish!

Can't wait to hear your feedback Jordanis because I've been thinking of doing this since last year.

It would be great if someone could test the action differences (if there are any) in a test tank even in fresh water.

Good luck!

We use singles in heavy weed cover.

We try to hide the hooks behind the body of the lure but this depends heavily
upon the pivot angle of the lure.

I've also experimented with assist hooks on press baits and plugs with some success.
