What is the reason for the hole in the lure?

Very cool paint job!

Thanks guys it works pretty well, the hole reflects light and provides a halo effect to the bait.

gotta love the triple split ring. You should put some higher quality hooks on it though.

I love those E/C 775 hooks when fish get hooked they stay hooked, I use to hate them just because, with no real reason I guess, then I started using them on everything except big baits on advice from an old Muskie god.

That fine wire sets the hook itself and Ive never had a hook bend on fish well over 50 inches.

One other thing I like about them is they cut easy unlike Mustad 3551's, but I do like the 3551's allot they hold well too.

Speaking of hooks, I also like the 775s although for me they are a bit trickier to resharpen with the curved points.

Cool bait, The hole in it is an interesting idea. I'd like to see that in action.

Since we got on the subject of hooks... are the mustad 3551 the hooks used on the DCG's if so can you get them with a shorter shaft?, and are they using 7/0 on those baits as well?

Another question about the eagle claw's with the rounded point, is there any reason to use that style over a straight point or is it just personal preference? - Thanks

I have a double round file I made for the curved hooks they dont take much to sharpen at all. The bait turns 180 with almost no forward movement, so its a great target.

They are 3551's on the DCG I'm sure, I wish Mustad made them short but all the finer wire are round bend and for me they lose more fish than they hook.

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
