The common rigging mistake we see with soft plastic lures and weedless weighted hooks is sometimes anglers will bury the hook inside the plastic of the lure.

Now when a fish strikes that lure, the hook has to tear through all the plastic to expose itself and stick into the fish’s mouth.

Then you’ll have a hard time rigging it back up.

You must make sure the hook point comes out through the top of the lure.

This will let the lure slide down the shank of the hook instead of getting torn up.

To maintain weedless properties, you can barely skin-hook the hook point at the top of the lure.
