And here's a pic of the linethru rig in action. Since I started using only this rig at night, I have landed every fish that has bit it except 1, and it pushed the hook deeper in the plastic. These trout are notorious for shaking off during a fight, so to only lose 1 out of nearly 50 big fish is incredible! These are fully customized, including a 1/4oz weight and a hook keeper in the rear to keep the treble from ripping up the belly of the swimbait. Getting that weight in the right spot is the toughest part.

Don't go swimming at night in a bayou in FL and you will be ok :lol: Seriously, there's scarier things that swim in those waters, like 10' lizards with BIG teeth!
