Looking for saltwater hooks that fits jig mold JT-5-WBA & JT-7-WBA Teardrop jigs with wire keeper. Been searching for days on the internet with no luck. I have both mold and used the hooks the molds specs. The problem is the saltwater destroys the hooks. I just want them to hold up. These jigs with Zman ElaZteck Streakz 5" are great for False Albacore fishing off the Jersey coast in the fall. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's very easy to drill the hole out just a touch bigger and deeper... Then fill the hole up with red rtv silicone over full and let dry. Then cut it flush with mold. Then you can use any hook w/o any flash.. Pouring your own with a modified mold is what it's all about....
