    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?

    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.

    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.

    Maybe a dumb question, but is this for real? Seems like a lot of hardware.
