Has anybody changed out the treble hooks on the kwikfish k9x extreme for single siwash?? Do you put it on the belly like a wiggle wart or off the tail like a tadpolly???Thank you Rod

I usually hook em on the tail, but haven't tried it on the K9's, only K11. I would worry a bit about killing the action on the smaller plug with the extra weight/resistance on the tail. Unconfirmed theory on that one. K11's still run pretty nice with a short bead chain.

The Rvrfshr sickle siwash work really well in this application. I switched all of my single hook plugs to the sickles and won't use another siwash on a plug if I can help it. Now if they only made bigger sizes for the larger quickies, ahem, Todd. Had to use Matzuo's for the big dudes.

Like Nancy Reagan urged, "Just say no"..... to trebles.

I run some K11's and put one owner treble on the ass end for brats.I've never run a K9.But when going after nates I'll use a tadpolly with single barbless off the ass end.The only steelhead plug I run that has a hook to the belly is hot shots in 40's & 30's.Looks like you'll be testing that K9 out in the bath tub or you local street curb & gutter.Good luck,

I tend to use a U-20. My go to setup has been tandem, size 2, single point barbless hooks.

I'm running this right through the block at the head to allow the plug to waggle and search from side to side. I'm fishing the top end of tidewater here. When I'm fishing on a big ebb tide the adjustment is more towards a wobble to fish certain lanes.
