Re: Snapping Turtle Hooks
I went directly to one of the big hook companies ant talked (by phone) with a rep, who took the time to measure the hook dimentions to find a Pa. compliant hook. I then ordered a box of 100 hooks. I put a 75# nylon coated wire leader (about 18 ") on the hook and a big swivel on the other end. I tie decoy cord to the leader swivel and attach to what ever I am anchoring to. I have rearly ever had a turtle break this rig, although I both tie the wire and crimp leader sleeves because the nylon coating can slip under strain.
