COol......thankx
Will definitely order some and give them a try.....

Another question,, why would u use a J hook, rather than a circle hook for swimbaiting? Or is it just personal prefrance?

I do use both but the ideal method of livebaiting with a circle is to bridle the bait with a single hook or it doesn't work.

A 20/0 circle looks ridiculous when bridled on a 15kg hound

Double J hooks just hook up better on a swimbait

Ok......thanx
Will try both methods.... I've seen various posts using double circle hooks, does this affect its action?

PS. Please let me know when u come down to namibia again,we can organise a fishing trip, I believe I could learn a lot from fellow fishermen, haha.......especialy in swimbaiting

Hoekom ek vra is ek gaan biekie op langstrand toe en dan terrace toe vir 7 dae en wil bronzies target erg, eers gedink my nr een keuse is om n Mack te slide, of n Sandy te slide lewendig, maar toe kom ek op die post van julle af. So is nogals nuskierig watse sukses jy gehad het met n sandy swim bait?

He has another thread on this and was dealt out a serious hiding on his Torium 50 and a Smoothound as a swimbait.
