Advantages of Needle Eye Hooks – Rigging Ballyhoo

A needle eye hook has an advantage over the ring eye when you’re rigging Ballyhoo due to the smaller eye. A ring eye can at times make it difficult to properly set the hook in between the gill plates because of the size and bulk of the eye, and the leader connection to it. A needle eye hook with wire or cable fits perfectly and makes for a much cleaner rigged bait.
