Underwater Power Prawn USA Analysis [Weedless Hooks VS. Jigheads]
You won’t want to miss this underwater Power Prawn USA analysis!
I was curious to see how the Power Prawn USA behaved underwater when rigged on weedless hooks vs. jigheads.
Do the hooks you choose have an impact on lure action?
Let’s find out!!
Underwater Power Prawn USA Analysis [VIDEO]
The two types of hooks used in this demonstration are a typical open-faced jighead and a weedless hook.
Hoss Football Jighead
Hoss Football Jigheads have the hook exposed when rigged with any type of soft plastic lure.
The first thing you’ll notice is every time the lure lands on the bottom, it stays upright.
It won’t flip on its side or upside down because of that football-style weight on the end.
Also, the presentation overall is very clean with an easy glide up and fall back down to the bottom.
With the weight at the front of the rig, it falls pretty much straight down each time.
Hoss Weedless Football Jighead
Hoss Weedless Football Jigheads are weedless hooks that have the same football weights attached at the front but they are free to swing back and forth.
Similarly, as with the Hoss Football Jighead, the Hoss Weedless Football Jighead keeps the lure upright on the bottom.
The presentation is slightly different though.
It is a bit more erratic as you bounce it along the bottom.
Something else to take note of is the lure’s position as the rig comes to rest on the bottom.
The hook shank keeps the lure raised off of the bottom which causes the tail to wiggle more in the current.
If a fish is cruising along and notices the shrimp’s tail sticking off the bottom, it will have no choice but to strike!
Final Thoughts & Conclusions
Overall, the action on both hook styles was very similar.
Both lures fall gradually and sit upright on the bottom.
It seems that the Hoss Weedless Football Jigheads have slightly more action and move more erratically as they are bounced along.
Another major takeaway is one is weedless and the other is not.
Depending on your surroundings and the structure you’re fishing, you need to choose the right hooks.
If you’re fishing tight to hard structure like docks, rocks, etc., then the weedless hook is the best application.
If you’re fishing open flats or sandy bottom, the exposed jighead is a reliable option.
When you’re lures aren’t rigged on the right hooks, you’ll end up spooking fish or losing gear.
Presentation is absolutely critical.
