Sportsman's Workbench April Issue
Here’s a trick I learned as a result of two hook problems — one in my back and one in my finger. I slice off sections of a pool noodle and pull my plugs or treble hooks through the middle, embedding the point of the hooks in the foam. This is an easy way to cover the exposed points, and to prevent injury and tangling on a moving boat or in the bottom of a tackle bag. To keep lures on the rod, I just cut the noodle and carefully remove it from the hook.
