    Use the rivet trick and just add a bullet weight in front of the treble hook to add weight.

    So with line thru swimbaits like KTech what weight styles do you use in front? Bullet type FL weights? Do they run straight that way?

    dwtaylor - This works perfect - Thanks

    Slide the head on the line, using a hook run the line thru the eye then thread the hook thru the bait. Now tie the line to a split ring on a treble hook then pull back into the bait!!! You can bury the hook into the bait or not. My hookup ratio and keep ratio vastly improved!

    Fattube Line Thru Swimbait tubes are like a long rivet that you can get up to 1/2 oz or a plastic floating one. They are on TW website.

    This^^^ I tried a couple other methods and I like this best. I did have a problem with the Shoulder on the rivet pulling into the swim bait body after several catches and eventually tearing the bait. I cured this by putting a spot of super glue on the rivet barrel when I inserted it. I watched the Mark Zona video on U tube to learn about the method.
