You will use it a lot !.There is a photo of the jig below and you can see the loop knot.
How to rig live yakkas with the two hook rig

Rigging wit he two hook rig is pretty easy if you know how . See the photos below . The top hook goes in first on the back of the fish . Be careful to just put the hook through the fish just under the backbone . The closer you get to the top of the back bone the better as more of the hook juts out .i like it in the back as I feel the fish vibrates more in the water and attracts the kingie or jewie . In the nose , they swim more freely . The second hook can either stay free or just get pinned at the bottom of the fish near the tail . Either is ok . If you are using a stinger hook ie treble , then let it roam free on yakkas but pin it on w live squid . The squid is for another blog .
if you want to troll a live yakkas or any live fish you need to pin the top hook in the nose of the fish . Not the mouth as they can drown . In the nose they are free to swim with the speed of the boat and live a lot longer . Then I put the stinger hook into the bottom near the tail , just in case .See photo .
