Hey guys

I was watching Hunt for the big fish and saw a mr wiggly and was wondering how the hook is in the lure, to me it seems like the lure slides on a small leader. I was wondering how you accomplish that. Any thoughts would be great

It would be pretty easy to pour the bait with a small tube running less than a third of the way back in the bait. That way the rubber has a lot of action and can pull free when a fish hits. The castaic platinum swimbait is similarly rigged.

some soft baits I made I used surgical tubing inside the lure and used the mend-it to keep it in place- then ran the leader through the tubing an put hook(s) on below- then when the fish strikes the plastisol moves up the leader and doesn't get all chewed up- works............ Like to run 6/0-8/0 circle hook off the bottom with an arc dehooker- bam fish-on/ fish- off
