What swimbait was he throwing and how was it modified. I caught just a second on BML and Zona was saying he modified it to be a line trough with a treble wondering how this was done and what type it was. Thanks

Get a swivel. Attach a split ring and treble to one end. Slide the other end over your weighted hook is one way, but that's not line thru. For a line thru make a hole in the nose with a nail, stick a small piece of steel tubing in the nose, then slit the belly of the swimbait just behind the eyes of the bait. Thread your line thru and attach a treble with split ring to your line. Then bury part of the treble in the belly of the bait. Don't know what brand of swimbait he was throwing.

On one of the pictures of his Day 4 he is digging into a Havoc bag so I am guessing it was the Berkley Havoc Bobby Lane's Grass Pig Swimbait in the Gizzard Shad color.
