was just thinking i get so many thumps that miss the bait has anyone ever tried a small treble hook stinger hook on your jig? like size 12 or 14 .it would be a pain to put it on and off every time you change your plastics and im sure you would hang up much more but just think of all the fish that come off on the way to the boat.

No way, I would add a treble hook. Maybe a little small stinger hook, in the tail of the plastic??

I'd also add a scope. Smth like this, only with hook instead of a knife...

I just add a crappie nibble so they hold on to the bait a few seconds more.

Agree, I have tried a Second hook, and had no success. But adding some Cut Shad, or some Attractant works very well. As said above, Down sizes as well. or you just know they are small and don't worry.. lol
