    Yes that's what he meant, I don't myself,but I do keep extra hooks onboard because they do break, usually talking them out of a fish, I haven't had a split ring issue #4 hooks but I also carry them #3 rings

    Happy Hooker can be seen on facebook Happy Hooker Outdoors. That's it. Just have not been in there since Capt. Dave retired and sold out. The stock hooks on the Bandits are brittle and the split rings are a bit soft and may stretch so change them as you go or if your feeling like it just sit down and change them#4 hooks and size 3 rings with good ones. It has been said DJ does change the hooks but I only repeating it from past posts.

    As others said, hooks and split rings on bandits are weak. I use #4 VMC online trebles and #3 split rings. Some don't have problems with them but many people do. I didn't until I mentioned I didn't l then I had a bunch of hook bend and break and a couple split rings stretch. Now they get cut off and replaced before they go in the water doesn't matter stock or custom I do it to all, costs like $1 per bait or less using VMC

    Are you guys using short shank trebles or regular treble hooks?

    Don't over look Dreamcatcher baits custom painted cranks. David paints them himself and does an excellent job. Here is a link to their website. There are some pictures of his custom painted lures on the site.

    Anglers Avenue also has been selling a lot of custom Bandits, has some additional colors to put up after returning from the sports show in Grand Rapids this last weekend too.

    I've bought quite a few from Angler's Ave. Very nice selection and good prices too! Shipped quickly to my door and no problems.
