The Pakula Full 60 Degree Shackle RigTM

The Pakula Full 60 Degree Shackle Rig was originally invented by Peter Pakula when trolling lures for Blue Marlin was in its infancy on Australia's East Coast. 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.

As strikes were not common it was imperative that the lures rig also offered the best possible hook up rates. This rig satisfied all these requirements to a point that there has only been minor changes in the current rigs.

You only need a few sets of hooks which can be used on many lures. It is relatively easy to keep a few sets of hooks razor sharp and clean to use on a full collection of lures.

The Pakula 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.

We recommend the hooks are set to 60 degrees. In this configuration both hooks travel with their points up and in a slight "V" formation acting as a rudder. Details on the Pakula Shackle RigTMare available in the Articles section of this web site. There is simply no other rig that gives as high a hook up as the Pakula Shackle RigTM!

WARNING: Dojo PecheHooks are super sharp and will easily penetrate most things they come in contact with including humans and anything surrounding them. They should be handled with extreme caution even by those experienced in handling very sharp hooks.
