That's a nice video I liked this one where they changed the hook. I think it's called a "trap hook".

That's a nice way to modify the trap hook method. I use similar on live baits larger and longer than 1". If they like to nibble any part of the bait, there's a nice hook awaiting for them.

Yeah, i've done that several years ago while deep sea fishing, but never even occurred to me until I missed a good bite in the harbor only to see several large gashes in my swimbait right behind the hook.

I do that for old plastic swimbait. Very very useful for catching panfishes. Basses, they don't give a damn. They swallow the thing whole whether the fish has one hooks, or 10 hooks.

Wow that's a nice one. I prefer to use setups like that as they use crimps instead of knots. For me it's a lot easier to crimp mono instead of trying to tie a knot.

Really? I do that while fishing, and it's a heck lot easier to tie mono and braid than crimping. However, it's easier to measure out the line, tie it to the eyelet, and crimp. But, wet hands, crimping tools, and crimping ties, hm..not fun if the lines are less than 15lbs.

In the video they used some heavy line and there is no way your going to tie 50lb mono in those knots.
