From experience, if you have the hook facing forward around any kind of floating trash (grass, algae, etc.) you are going to have your lure all mucked up all the time.
Has to be pointing backward, and yes, you may lose some hooksets.
But if the lure is clogged up all the time, there will never be anything on which to need to set a hook anyway.
So what I have done on many of my own...I attained several sizes of double hooks. These point toward the back, but each hook offsets somewhat to the opposite side.
I cannot describe, but you can look them up. Eagle Claw and Mustad both have them available.
