You are such a lucky guy!
Don't take this wrong, but why are people feeling the need for a treble on these jigs?? Trebles often result in lost fish. Just one guys opinion I suppose (and maybe that could change), but I would feel way more confident knowing a big fish was hooked on a single vs a treble during a hard long death circling badass tuna. If it was hooked deep in the gullet, that might be another story!
Curious to thoughts on this?

Has anyone had luck with the small Promar Defeption jigs (Chovy size) with these fish boilingnon micro baits?
It sounds to me like we will all be out trying for the big one this wknd including myself and my son, I hope everyone can have fun and treat each other like most good sports men. Good Luck see you out there, TAN LINES!
And another Thank You to my friends that HOOKED ME UP with the "Proper" Rod - Seeker 6463XXH Dave Choate Custom and a Pen 50 to make sure that I get the job done.
Some of the local stores are rigging them both ways with welded rings, or you can rig them yourself at home with heavy split rings.
I have nothing against the Flat Falls....but they only go up to an 8 OZ Jig, If there is any kind of current and the fish are down deep...you're going to want a 10,12 or 14 OZ jig to get there....Quickly. The first one down usually gets bit.
I've personally saw the eye broke on a fall flat lure. Those knock off are junk.
I've haven't lost any fish on my flat fall's with stock hooks.
I actually do well with the Williamson knife style jig on Bluefin. Pink and glow. I didn't know they had a flutter type jig.
Great report. Thanks for the post.
The one on the right looks sexy!!!

fish geeks. yep, if they're hungry they will eat a florescent jig too.
What Size, Owner Hook is That
I Bought a Couple For Rock Cod
and haven't used them
Its Time To Make them BFT Jig's .
These lures work! We had two fish hooked on them when I was out last. But you either better have 200lb leader, or you need to rerig them or you will get chewed off. Big bft have sharp teeth. I bridle all my bft jigs with large circle hooks, with the lure tied to the bend in the hook. Way better landing rate.
Right place right time and a glow in the dark turd will work.
More hooks more better.....
Maybe a dumb question, but is this for real? Seems like a lot of hardware.
(Referring to post above with 5 hooks on a flat fall)
