Modifying Jig Molds To Add multiple Hooks
« on: 12/26/20 10:50 UTC »
Anyone here ever modify there jig mold to fit multiple hooks. I'm wondering if its easy to do and what style mold to use.

Welcome to the Do-It forums Walleye 173. And Happy Holidays.

That looks like a real snag finder from my perspective and no, I've never seen that done. Spendy head with all those hooks. I'm not sure what advantage there'd be.

 I would think a stinger hook like you use on a spinnerbait would work better than that.

Looks like a regular jig hook with a double limerick hook added as well.

Hi walleye 173-

That is about as unique of set up as I've ever seen... what is it's purpose?

As far as the easiest mold for adding the extra hooks to look (something) like what you posted, consider a mold that a wire already in it like those released in 2017 and modify the wire to hold a clip on double hook



Alternatively, you could just add a full treble to the poison swing tail


or just straight up use a snag hook (and add some dressing, if required).

I also don't see any advantage for where I fish, but I think if I was going to do that, I would modify for frog hooks, and use a wire form for the line tie eye. That would add two good hooks, that should have better hook up ratio than when using the hollow frogs for which the hooks are made. 

Otherwise, trailer hooks are the typical way to add multiple hooks for use with jigs as others have said.
