what does the rice and chalk do to help with the rust?
its stays dry in the tackle bag and compartment that I keep them in.

These lures are at least 4 years old also

If you aren't sure take one off and go to your local tackle store and match it. If you are changing a lot of them i recommend a pair of split ring pliers.

I recommend corrosionX. Spray in box and decreases rust dramatically.

I recommend going with larger hooks than what came on the bait... the larger hooks wont effect the performance of the bait plus u will get all of those fish that just roll on your bait... hook ups increase 20% easy with bigger hooks.

Yep. I started using #2 KVD hooks on spook JRs and man I catch a lot of them in the stomach and throat when they roll over it.

Yeah I only change my hooks out on the topwaters... if I need to change em on subsurface baits I go back with same size hooks... but for Spook Jrs and Skitterwalks I change my hooks as soon as I buy the baits. Make a huge diff on hookups... especially when they aren't really "eating" it
