Hooks with Keel Weights are a perfect choice when rigging lures with a single hook. The weighted hook shank will ensure the hook runs with the point of the hook in the upward position, which is the preferred method.
An artificial lure rigged with a Keel Weighted hook will increase the overall hook-up ratio. Keep in mind that the rigging should allow the hook to move freely within the skirt. In rough seas, a weighted hook will also remain more stable within the lure skirt.
As you can see, this Keel Weighted hook incorporates a heavy duty BB Swivel.
All of our Keel Weighted hooks are Mustad 7691S Stainless Steel with 1 oz keel weight.
All Double Hook Rigs have a Keel Weighted #7691 for the rear hook and a #7732 in the front. Cable is either 600lb or 800lb depending upon the hook size. Shackle is rated at over 600lb and the Ball Bearing Swivel is 530lb test.
