What size hook do you use this those setups? Do you trim the tentacles at all to help with setting the hook or does it work fine as is?

I use 8/0 Owner 5379s almost exclusively. Eagle Claw 2004s will save ya a bit and do well. No need to trim. Snell or loop snell for the circles which kind or precludes the use of wire.

Have rigged the Js on wire, but most of the time would rather get cut than bring the toothy to the boat so I rig with fluoro or mono.

Nice rig specslayer.

All the best

Really good post guys. Great idea, now we need a cheaper and more environmentally friendly substitute for lead. I have tried cement but not dense enough, it requires twice the size mold for the same weight. Have you guys had any luck with anything else or do you just use lead?
