    Its pretty common practice now, plenty of articles written about it. Its called bombing and or shivering.

    FaSnaps & split rings are hard... :lol: :mischeif:
    Gami EWGs are wicked - and Daiichi's are nothing to mess with. :shhh:

    If you use split rings the hook gets caught on the line all the time.

    Put a pc. on the hook shank, fasten your hook - slide tubing up over the split ring - hook stays straight down, I get paid to think outside the box... SO I do when I can for myself.

    I have never altered a rap for walleye but always remove the treble hook on the #2's and 3's I use for perch. This gets replaced with an aberdeen single hook.

    Heat shrink tubing also to achieve same goal. Not as colorful but just as effective. Shrubby

    I bought a 100pk off ebay for 4$ from china #8 red treble hooks...quality is better then what I buy at the local shop even though for 4$ they give you 6 hooks...ebay for the win..and you can pick any size you want and short or long shank....great for stingers for walleye jigging in the spring.[​IMG]

    Good call, I've used that before too - it comes in other colors besides black, I have red, green, yellow, blue, white and maybe a few others - my son gave me close to 2000 ft. of it - -since I do electronics installations it's awfully handy for me!

    You need some help or a visual Lee??

    The hooks are fine IMO. Just take needle nose pliers and pull the shanks a little more open. There are youtube videos on it.

    I agree, they used to be way undersize, but not now. I exclusively use rapalas on one rod while jigging Saginaw Bay eyes, catch tons of fish with factory hook, no problems.
