Pompadour Jr hooks

Recommended Posts

I have been scouring the internet , trying to find a post on changing the rear treble hooks on the pompadour Jr . So far no success.  Has any one here done it ? If so , did you use a snap ring ? What were the results .

I took some pliers and just barely opened the ring to add a new hook, then closed the eye with pliers again. If I have to change it again, I'll probably just add a split ring to it instead of opening/closing the eye.

I think I am going to go ahead and add a split ring.  I have concerns though that it will up the the prop. I guess I'll find out change it when I do it .

Even if it hangs up the prop, that's not the action that triggers the bite IMO.

i did the same thing and once you said about just adding a split ring too it i was like d**n why didnt i do that?

either way i dont even fish it that much so i dont have to worry about changing it out again anytime soon.

 

This post made me think why i havent tied it on yet this year so this morning i decide it to toss it for 5 minutes before work.

 

even 1lbers shotgun blast it so hard!

They come with #5 hooks which were replaced with #4's, front hook has a split ring so it was just a matter of opening the eye on the rear just enough to swap out....used Owner 36's .
