This rig is made with a 2X strong stainless needle eye Southern Tuna hook.This is the only needle eye hook that has a smooth eye opening that will not cut through mono leader. Other needle eye hooks you must use wire or cable as the mono will not hold up.
The hook on the top of the image is the stainless hook and the stamped eye hook is on the bottom. Note the sharp edges of the stamped hook.
Each rig is provided with a standard pin with a bait spring. A nylon thimble and crimp are provided to finish the rig after adding an Island lure or Joe Shute or any other type of skirting.
