Elite Series pro Terry Scroggins Shows How to Make a Plastics Keeper Using Fishing Line

Tackle tweaker Terry “Big Show” Scroggins shows how to secure and keep plastics positioned where you want them on a jig hook - it's done in the boat and requires nothing more than some heavy line.

Techniques like skipping docks put a lot of force against plastics rigged on lures like jigs and bladed swim jigs. This has a tendency to rip them off keepers or slide them down hooks. Terry Scroogins shows us his innovative method for keeping plastics, in this case, the Yum Break’N Shad, in place and  firmly secured to his Chatterbait. It’s done quickly in the boat and requires nothing more than a short shank of 20 lb. line and a unit knot.
