We have increased our range of Pakula Products.
Some of this range now include Dojo Hooks, Shackle Rigs and Shackles and much more
Pre-sharpened using high strength stainless steel. All Pakula Dojo Peche Lures will come pre-rigged with Dojo hooks.
These hooks and shackles will also be available in separate packs as well as shackle rigs for all skirted lure sizes.
To sidestep current confusion with hook sizes, Dojo hooks will be sized in packs according to their gape.
This is a useful method to choose the right sized hook. For a skirted lure, the hook gape should equal the lure head diameter.
Dojo hooks will be ideal for live baiting, as an assist hook, and indeed most applications requiring a great hook rate using a strong, sharp hook.
The Pakula Shackle Rig
This was originally invented by Peter Pakula when trolling lures for Blue Marlin on the East Coast of Australia.
It was a time when many lures of all types, including Pakula prototypes, were tried daily.
This necessitated a rig that could easily and quickly be transferred between lures and also allowed the lure maximum freedom of action.
The Pakula Dojo Peche Shackle Rig allows the hooks total freedom to line up with the lures centre, eliminating line twist.
The hooks are free to swing, allowing the lure to exhibit its best possible action without hindrance or keeling effects.
This gives the hooks the best possible chance of hooking up as they are able to work independently of each other.,
These are incredibly strong, made from 304 stainless steel.
The extra small size will take weights of 300kg, and the small over 400kg.
he benefit of using Shackles in rigs is they allow the lure freedom to exhibit the lure makers' desired action.
They also allow the hooks to self centre, which minimises lure spin and line twist
Pakula Keel Rig
The Pakula Keel Rig weights will increase your hook up rate on all Skirted Trolling Lures.
In their first year several anglers who were introduced to the Keel Weights in New Zealand enjoyed 100% success using them on usually difficult to hook Striped Marlin.
