  • Backwards bullet heads!

    Or should I say upside down?
    Had a friend who owns a charter drop these 16 oz bullet heads off with me awhile back.
    Apparently a repeat client felt bad about losing a bunch of jigs one year so decided to start making bullet heads. So he's been sending them to my buddy each year.
    I guess he comes up every other year or so.
    Apparently putting the hooks in upside down doesn't effect the fish catching ability but does greatly increase the bottom snagging.
    So he thought about putting them in his wifes garage sale. Until he priced new ones.
    I just got these fixed for him a couple days ago.
    I did replace the brass eyelets with stainless ones(a must do in my opinion) but reused the hooks.
    Made for a good time killer here in quarantine.
    I'll keep some of the lead for my efforts.
    Just shy of 70 jigs total.
    Moral of the story is make them how they were designed!

    Maybe he was from Australia. But you got me wondering about a stinger hook off of the main hook. Possibilities? I can't remember seeing any around.

      Actually iirc he was from California.
      IMHO thats a pretty backwards state if I ever saw one.
      Yeah a stinger hook would be a fairly easy mold modification.
