Bottom is an 8/0 Jobu. Treble is a 2/0 st-66. I also have 3/0 now. I should pick up some of the big Mustad Kaiju to really choke ‘em out! Capt Mark on the Pacific Voyager recommends them. Bigger is better... BFT inhale lures, they aren’t delicate eaters.

With the FF, move the bottom hooks to the top and put something bigger on the bottom. Two or three hooks sunk in is better than one! Use a heavy leader to keep from getting bit off... BFT have sharp teeth. That’s probably more critical than the hooks! More fish are lost from being chewed off than hooks failing.

Ya I need at least 10 single hooks and don’t know which to use for the double split hooks up top...

Contact Charkbait or Squidco. They should have the hooks and owner split rings. Plus know who’s are stronger.

The split rings can be difficult, so you need a good split ring plier. Suggest the HPA, from Trophy Tackle. Not cheap but work well.

That is not a good jigging hook.
The gap between the shank and hook tip is too narrow, your hook may stock on the jigs.

Get the Shout Kudako 4/0, that is the best one, though it is pricey.

FWIW, I mostly store my jigs unrigged. They’re easier to store and they don’t get stuck together. It’s cheaper too since I don’t need a full set of hooks, split rings and leaders for each jig. It only takes a minute with the split ring pliers and it’s ready to go.

The HPA pliers aren’t very common. There is an old thread on BD about split ring pliers. I know Trophy Tackle has them. I got mine there. Look at the u tube video. BTW I tried 3 different pliers and the HPA works the best with the Owner rings.

HPA split ring pliers do work well. Tackle Now is also an HPA dealer, try there is Trophy is out.
