Securing a trailer hook

no-image

This one is a little different. My dad first showed it to me and to my knowledge he’s the first to do it. Just run your trailer hook on whatever bait you’re using, then slide the point of your main hook through the clicker end of a small zip tie and you’re almost done. Snip off the excess zip tie and you have a very durable trailer hook keeper that will not go back past the barb.
