    Curious if anyone has an opinion on this.
    Been fishing Clearfork regularly for a year now and I'm starting to build a little collection of AC Shiners. Wondering if you guys are upgrading the hooks and split rings on these lures...
    I fish 550's, 450's, and 00's.
    I've been leaving the 450 and 00 alone. For the 550, I replace the front and rear hooks to #2 Mustads and remove the center hook.
    Anyone upgrading the 450 ? First time I used this lure was last weekend and lost one after a quick headshake. I prefer to blame the hook rather than my skill or luck :rolleyes: :D
  2. You mentioned Mustad but not the style. You may want to try the Triple Grips if you have't allready. If they shake those loose that's one lucky fish.
