Double fluke rig looks amazing in the water and I don't think I set the hook hard enough on plastics

Recommended Posts

Didn't catch anything on it but this rig just LOOKS like bass would want it!

 

Also, I stopped at a new to me pond and in 20 minutes I caught a 2 plus and lost another the same size. 

 

I don't think I set the hook hard enough when fishing senkos and whatnot.

I lose 40% of the fish I hook.

Could be a rigging or hardware problem but if you don't think you set he hook hard enough then you probably didn't. 

 

When you get bit on a plastic or really any single hook bait reel up all the slack and turn their head

Having issues uploading photos so there are some pics there, and also pics of some of the fish I've been catching. I think I need to have a reference object in the bass pics, cuz they don't look as big in these pics.

 

Re: hooksets on plastics. That is my problem, I just kind of reel in and put strong pressure, a little tug but not a home run swing.

I read and see all the good ones pulling the rod up like they are Hercules, but I'm always worried it will pull it out of the fish's mouth. I know I'm wrong, but I have to get past that spinnerbait hookset. It's the only thing I haven't been able to internalize, like make it automatic.

 

Thanks for the advice, and hopefully I can conquer the hookset.

Cool. 

 

Yeah, good luck on the hookset. With 2 lures on you'll need more force in the first place. And setting the hook on a single hook is less chance of pulling it out so swing away.

I tried it once or twice and caught a few fish. I think both time not from swimming but let it sink all the way to bottom and pop it.
