What are these called?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for the little metal things that are used to keep texas rigged plastics from sliding down the hook.  They look like bent snaps.

And since i'm here..............is there anything like a snap on barb that you can clip onto a jig hook to keep the trailer from sliding down?

They are called linear decomboberlaters. :;)

I honestly just use and offset shank worm hook, don't have any trouble until the head tears.

The clips are called "parasite clips".  BPS carries them.

A cheap way on the texas rig is after rigging soft plastic on hook to insert a toothpick thru the eye of the hook then cut off even with diameter of bait.

After looking at those things I know two things.  1 I have never seen or heard of them before.  2 I don't see how they would work, I guess they do but I don't see how.   The toothpick idea sounded pretty good.  Has anyone used these things.

;D Great answer... I personally call them thingamajigs..

They are parasite weights and they do work well. I use them ALOT. On the bass pro shop site they have them rigged wrong. Here is a link to the parasite weights site themselves. Their is a video that shows how they are rigged. Hope this helps.

They work great.

x2 I use them on soft plastics that tear easily and it extends their life significantly.

Down here we don 't spend on toothpicks, nature has provided us with huizache brushes so we use huizache thorns.  ;)

An easy and effective way to secure your plastic's is to take some shrink wrap, run it up your hook shank, cut a few little slits in it at a 90 degree angle and heat it up with a lighter. When it hardens you will have little barbs that will hold it.

Harvey and Gregg Stump at Robo Worm make a hook called a re-barb basically this way but your limited in selection so that is why I make my own. You can do this on regular hooks, jigs, spinnerbaits, whatever.

Does anyone know what size is appropriate for 4-6 inch plastics?  I noticed the site had 3 diff sizes but no description of the differences.
