    Default Weedless minnow hooks

    Does a weedless ight wire shiner hook exist? If not, does anyone have any suggestions of how to make one. Fish in some pretty heavy cover and donate lots of hooks to the limb monster. Yes, I do use light wire hooks, but still break some off. Thought about wrapping small wire below the eye like the weedless jigs you can buy.

    There are weedless "hooks" and weedless "jigs" .... and many ways to turn either non-weedless version into a weedless one.

    We have a couple few members that custom make/sell weedless jigs. You can turn a regular hook or jig into a weedless version with rubber bands (size used for teeth braces) or there's a product called Hook Guard (BPS) or Pro Weed Guard (Southern Pro). And, as you suggested, wire can be utilized.

    And this depends on the Walmart too. neither of the walmart's close to me carry much of anything that others say are in their stores...and weedless hooks are one of them, unless you need them in a 4/0 size...
