I can't seem to find a good hook and weight for small swim baits - say 3 to 4". I usually look for a 5/0 and a variety of belly weights but the plastic swim body tears off the keeper too easily, and the swim bait twists on the hook...any suggestions?

Owner Twistlock Beast.

Center pin on the screw lock keeps the bait straight. Extra wide hook gap and vertical bend in the back of the hook allows for smaller hook for better alignment.

Use a 4/0 Beast if you normally use a 5/0 hook.
