Spinnerbait Trailer Hooks....

Recommended Posts

I bought these damned trailer hooks for my spinnerbaits. Looked awesome until they showed me how dumb I might be.

its a hook with a large eye, comes with surgical tubing that is too big to stay on the main hook. The website shows it covering the eye of the trailer hook while on the shank, thats great but won't hold if you look at it the wrong way, then it slides of the eye and down the trailer's shank.

I ended up just cutting the tubing and spiking it thru the main hook. I don't like how its bulky and not clean cut....

Anyone know better?

It's pretty simple and there are two ways of using the tubing. First, cut a piece of tubing about 1/4" in length and slip it only on the eye of the trailer hook. Then impale the trailer hook on the spinnerbait hook thru the tubing and trailer hook eye. That method will hold the trailer hook in a somewhat rigid position. Second, cut a 1/4" piece of the tubing and put the trailer hook on the spinnerbait, then impale the tubing on the spinnerbait hook buy sticking the spinnerbait hook thru the side if the tubing instead of thru the tubing hole. That will allow the trailer hook to swing freely. Some may use the tubing slipped over the spinnerbait hook thru the hole in a shorter version like an O ring, but it may come off. Some even make a trailer hook keeper out of punched out plastic bottle parts with a paper hole punch that looks like small discs.

Thanks guys

I had it rigged basically the way ya'll said. I didn't like the one way that left the hook rigid, just didn't look lifelike. I'll keep with the way where the hooks swings free and the tubing is just spiked sideways on it.
