Jackall Micro Pompadour Rear Double

Postby Leper » Sun Sep 17, 2017 4:46 pm

Anyone using this lure much and if so how does the double on the rear of the lure go? I'm considering changing it for a size 8 or 10 Owner treble. If anyone has changed it does it impede the action at all?

Have you had many hook ups on the rear hooks Steve?

A couple of years ago I was losing a lot of blades when casting from the bank, so changed to w hooks facing backwards and result was less snags and still plenty of fish. At the moment I am slow rolling blades along the bottom in the dam and have done the same thing to avoid snags.I have done the same to some of my creek hardbodies that sometime hit the bottom resulting in less snags and no difference to hookup rates.

To be more on the snagproof side its best to run 2 W hooks, or as with the pompadour your center treble is for the fish that come from below.My theory.

Yes Brad and no probs.

I use the Little Max series of blades and they come with W hooks. Have had no probs on them. Had over 50's on the blade with no issues to the w's

Had a good look at the lure today and realised that the w is not negotiable anyway. The third hook on the treble would impede the prop at the back!

Went to swap out the hooks on a Jitterbug the other night, then realised they have no split rings... :beye:
Think I'll cut the old hooks off and add split rings and new hooks.

Will probably grab a couple of the micro pompadours for our upcoming St Clair trip.... they look the goods.
I threw the Junior version out into the darkness last year, thinking nothing would ever eat it.... boy was I was wrong!

Cheers,

So finally managed a bass on the rear W hook on the Pompadour and what a nightmare removing it. The hook was so flexible I struggled to remove it without it bending and flexing rather than popping out. I have now removed it and replaced it with a small Size 10 Owner treble with no alteration to action. I then managed a metre plus lungfish off the surface and have to replace again because it straightened the treble! Lol!

My bigger Sara yesterday was landed on a 44mm GG with one hook on rear treble broken off, size 18 hooks. It was effectively a tiny W hook. Can't believe it held on! The big grunter was then landed on the same faux W hook.
