Rigging Plastics?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just wondering how you rig some of the bigger plastics? I know jigs are the most common, but a lot of the super senkos and worms I have don't need the extra weight. Does anyone texas rig em? What hooks do you use? Any other options? I was thinking rigging them up like a Killer Eel, with two single hooks, 7 or 8/0s. Any other ideas?

What size/kind of hooks are those? The packages I bought didn't have any included in them.

Hiya -

Lunker City, the company that makes Slug-gos, also makes an 8/0 offset worm hook that's perfect for Texas-rigging big plastics. Might have to get them from their HSOforum, but a pack of 5 is about $4.50 or so. They also make 7/0, 9/0 and 10/0 weighted straight-shank hooks which work pretty well too.

I bet with big swimbaits being so popular with bass guys these days you could also find some hooks there that would work - 6/0 or 7/0 Falcon swimbait hooks, or the big Diachiis.

Personally, I use a single hook with big plastic baits like lizards, etc. Fish either head hunt them, or eat the whole thing....

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
