Instructions

(00:00)  Step 1: Insert your hook point into the tip of the plastic. Go in roughly 1/8" keeping it centered. Then come back out the plastic. Depending on style of plastic your using, you may have to come out the front or back at this point. This may or may not effect how the bait sits on the bottom. For example, right side up or upside down if you were using a plastic crawfish. Here we are using a stick style worm so it doesn't matter how we exit the hook point in this step.

(00:10)  Step 2: Thread your plastic up the shank of the hook until you get to the eye .

(00:16)  Step 3: At this point rotate the hook or plastic 180 degrees and push it up over the eye of the hook and the knot.

(00:25)  Step 4: Line up the hook point where you want it to exit the plastic.

(00:29)  Step 5: Now fold the plastic so your hook will go through the bait and come out the other side. When you finish this step, the plastic should be nice and straight.

(00:42)  Step 6: Now to make this Texas rig totally weedless, take a pinch of plastic and lightly cover the tip of the hook.
