I guess I wasn't entirely clear on that. Your points about hardtails coming from below (albeit quickly) and most Monomoy stripers coming from above (in the dog days) is more along the lines of what I meant. So in fact, I think we might actually agree. Thanks for your thoughts on the subject....I'll be interested to hear how your modified hooks work for you.

And thanks to everyone else for your feedback as well.
