I can feel the the leader weakening from constantly being bent and straightened. Anyone have this problem too? I 'T' my hooks on weagles so maybe that is the problem.
No and I have my hooks T'd as well.
A couple questions for you...
Really a Weagle or is it another brand that you're just calling a Weagle?
When is the front hook hanging up (cast or retrieve)?
What type of leader to lure connection are you using (snap or splitring)?
My initial guess, without knowing the above, is it that you are overworking the bait since what you describe happens on all types of gliders when they are overworked (surface and sub-surface).
