Hi guys, has anyone fished the Yum Money Hound? if so, please share your experiences with it, how you rigged it and how you fished it. i heard some people had problems with it rolling over, if it happened to you, what did you do to stop it? What size hook did you use? anything details you can give about this bait would be appreciated. thanks guys.

Fish it on braid with as big of hook as you can get away with. I used them last year, and they got bites, but man was it hard to get a hook-up.

I got those hooks, but i haven’t got the money hounds yet. not sure the money hound is wide enough to take these double hooks. so i ordered 8/0 Owner twist lock wide gap plus hooks. i was thinking if i need a little bit of weight to keep it from rolling over, i can wrap a little solder around the hook shank. i do that with my frogs and works well with minimal hang-ups compared to a weighted hook

What size hooks were you using?

I have used them and I have caught them using a 5/0 hook They have a slit made in them and the 5/0 works well for me.  I have only caught them on the Foxy Shad color and they do work well in sparse weeds were a spook will foul with weeds…Don’t worry about rollover..I would spend more time finding a way to put a rattle in them.
