Here is a huge tip that really has helped me bring more fish to the boat, and have a higher hook up ratio. Using 2 split rings can really improve your hook up ratio throwing out the big big baits like this Roman Made Mother. In this case I'm using 2 #7 70lb owner split rings onto a Owner ST-58TN. This technique is a must for big bait fishing.

      @seaturtles same reason split rings came into use in the first place. Since they give the hooks a greater degree of movement, the fish can't use the weight of ...more the lure to pry the hooks out.

      @seaturtles more of a hook up ratio. Makes it easier to have fish take the hooks.
