Jigging Assist hooks

This is more for the micro-jigging side. But it may also be able to be utilised for the other jiggers.

    For those interested, I have done up a photo guide on how to make assist hook for the jigs. Click on the photos for the write up and step by step.

    Tools required (basic job)



















    And here we have the finished jig jook on PE line.

  • Michael Lim
    And for those who are using kevlar, this is another way.















    And the above shows the tied assist jigs on both PE line as well as Kevlar. :D

    Happy jigging.

    Here's the flash material version. Read the flickr site for the descriptions.





    For how to tie the solid ring on, please read my previous pictorial.



    This is also very similar to my previous tutorial. Only difference is that you add on the flash material after you secure a small section of the PE line.







    And here you have the finished product. :D

    One more different version



    Using kevlar instead of PE and also using glow in the dark flash fibres

    Another jig hook method is to use 2 hooks which faces in opposite directions.



    This is one method which I learnt online and it is good in the sense that you can measure EXACTLY how long you wish your snood to be.

    Will add in the tutorial on how to do this one later on.

    Here is the pictorial on how to do this double hook rig.

    What you need.

    Push out the core after you have measured out the dimensions and cut the kevlar to size.



    Remove the core and either keep for other use or throw it away.

    Thread the tool at below the base of the point where the kevlar is coming out from.



    Use the tool to grab the kevlar and form a loop.



    Pull thru back down the core and you'll form a nice loop like this





    Now repeat on the other end. (longer side)



    And after doing so, you'll get 2 loops.

    Now thread the loop thru the hook eye like this



    And then thread the loop thru the hook point and pull back onto the hook.



    Repeat on the other end.

    And if you find both hooks facing the same direction



    Just push the loop back out the hook point and reverse the loop direction and thread thru the point again.

    You will then get the hooks to face in opp. direction



    Now get a small solid ring which is matched to the kevlar and the hook size. Thread it onto the top.



    Pull the loop on back onto the ring and this is what you'll get

    And here is the completed rig against the jig which I have measured against, the Evergreen Caprice Kid 30gm.

    It's ok. I am testing out various choices available on the market. :D

    Having fun testing is part of the game for me.

    Bro,

    For the splicing of the orange line, I assume that the line poundage will be doubled. How does the setup fare against toothy fish like tinggiri?

    Apologies for the late reply,

    It's not actually doubled as the splice section is pretty small. As for Tengirri, I have been told that they can slice thru kevlar too. So if you want to be safe, go for a wire rig.

    those are octopus, not circle, hooks in the last few pictures. circle hooks have the hook point perpendicular to the shank, no?

    Sorry for missing this out. A couple of the local shops do sell this needles, Sabre, AO, Kaiser and Changi Pro should have these.

    Also, pics location are updated. So they should show up nicely now.

    So sorry, just saw this post. And yes, double hook rigs are possible.

  • jakko
    For the tying the hook, would that 2 half hitch work better than a 3 turn uni (uni might waste more kevlar)?

    Well, to each their own. But I am a lil more kiasu type. So waste a bit more, but feel more secure to me.... :lol:
