Do you add any weight to the front or is the hook enough?Brian E. Mullaney said:I saw that
I've never found the need for more than one hook with the sluggos - I think a second hook slows the tail action. I like weight in the front only.
No change in your hook-up to strike ratio with the single 10/0 gami octopus?Brian E. Mullaney said:I use 10/0 Octopus on the 9" sluggo - the hook is plenty of weight to cast it.
Have to agree with you. I double rig all my Sluggos and the hook up ratio is a lot better. As far as the new Sluggos go...way over priced! I can rig 9 Sluggos for the price of the new ones. FYI......7 inch Sluggos double rigged are DEADLY!!LongDrive said:I disagree with the assertion that a single hook slug-go will have the same hook up ratio as two hook rig. I've been fishing them for a long time and rig my own. I started fishing with single hook and certainly caught fish. Since going to 2 hook rig I have not noticed decreased strike rate (as long as rigged correctly the action remains) but would say the hook up ratio is better. I know bass tend to inhale from the front, but I still see improved hook-ups and have caught many on tail hook. Of course 2 hooks will certainly help you catch blues too, but when they are around using a slug-go is not the best bet. Just my $.02. (probably all it's worth )
