What Is HooGuard?
All of our larger lures are rigged with HooGuards. After researching the problem of bite offs, we found that adding a small strip of 49 strand stainless steel wire to the hook rigging reduced our bite offs by wahoo and king mackerel up to 70% while allowing us to continue using mono or flouro to rig our lures. We also found that many fish just wouldn't hit a traditional style wire coming out of the front of the lure. The HooGuard is a good compromise. We can't promise you won't get bit off by a wahoo or a king mackerel, but you will certainly get less cutoffs and more strikes.
