Default Shimano Butterfly Jig Flat sides

I am going to by some 6oz flat sides and was wondering what hook to buy for them, size, brand, type? I noticed in cabelas they have Owner stinger hooks for them, but was wondering if that type of hook or attaching a hook to the bottom of the jig would be better?

I like to attach a split ring to the top eyelet, and then a solid ring to the top of the split ring. I like to attach a single owner assist monster hook in a size that looks well matched to what i will be targeting to the solid ring. the solid ring is the top of the whole assembly, and the single assist hook falls and lies roughly half way down the jig.

Some people prefer two hooks, but i dont miss a lot of jig strikes generally, since the fish tend to come after it pretty aggressively, so two hooks to me seems to be more money drowned when my jig gets chopped off.

What ever hook you decide to use, you can make your own, quite easily, and much cheaper. I have a post dealing with making them. I make them using 130# Dacron (can use Power Pro) as that is what I have and will make a SS needle for you.

Single, or double hooks (some like 1 some like 2), use split ring then solid ring. As posted before, a split ring can damage line.

If you are going to buy them ready made then the gold owner hooks are as good as any, but if you would like to make them you can get the same kevlar that the ready made ones are made with. I use the Mustad Ultra point hooks or the Mustad hoodlum hooks. I also use 500# kevlar cord which you can buy in bulk if you would like, just contact me and I will give you the heads up on it. Shimano jigs are awesome but expensive. I use one hook now because when you are fighting a fish for one you can get multiple hookups because while the fish is head shaking the others are trying to take the jig away from him and also it is possible to bury the second hook into your hand while trying to unhook a fish and it is flopping around. Here is my theory use a hook that has a gap larger than the body of the jig to avoid getting stuck on the jig therefore making hookup almost impossible.

Thanks for all the help. Found some other post on the subject as well that were helpful. I should be able to figure out the best route to go now and even save some money.

Can you buy the 130-150# Dacron by the foot at any bait shops? I sure don't need hundreds of yards to make these.

thanks

Greg

I havent read tuna mans article yet, but making them sounds like a great idea. I have been using the owners and they work well and i prefer the double hooks also. I guess more is more, right We have on 2 different occasions actually caught 2 fish on the same jig. I havent tried all the options mentioned in the replies, but I think everyone would agree the jigs are the way to go. Good Luck

That's actually the reason I like a single assist hook. When the little jacks are around, you get too many double hookups!
