ok, so the actual hook was getting caught in brush as it pulled over a branch. So definitely, i could see a weighted hook helping with orientation as it pulls over brush. Wouldn't the problem be worse with a TexPosed hook?
As far as the kale hook with a wire guard, does someone make those already set up? I couldn't find em on the internet. I want to fish not make rigs to fish with... i learned that when i started reloading... id much rather shoot than make bullets to shoot.
"PEG IT!"... i don't think that would help in my case as the weight wasn't getting caught up, it was the hook.
Thank you all for your replies.
