Currently using the rig below with an egg weight. While it’s been effective I feel like I miss too many bites. What is the best setup for hook up ratio.

We use the "bottom bouncer" rig...hence my tournament partners name here on TFF. If you google "drop shot minnow rig" you will see what it is.

Weight: 3/8 oz casting weight
Hook: Eagle Claw EL214

On the rare occasion I use minnows, I either put the minnow on a naked jig head or use a true-turn hook with a split shot.

I used a couple of my old B"M rods rigged for minnows for my stepson early this summer, I had forgotten how soft they were.
Changed to Pro Anglers , results were a lot better.

If I'm fishing brush piles I will put the weight on the bottom and tie the hook 12" up on a small snelled leader.
If I'm fishing the thick cedars then I will use the Texas Toothpick. Rarely do I loose a fish and I have caught over 10,000 fish on it over 25 years. [Linked Image]
Just this year I started fishing a crappie bomb in the brush and caught a lot on it, but the fish do get hung up a little more than the Texas Toothpick.

Picture of crappie bomb, its basically a jigging spoon, the weight of it allows you to get un hung in the brush.

www.nekidtackle.com made these. I don't think he is taking orders though. Just loop a snelled hook through the swivel eye.
