Default Atom Striper Sweeper (there's no way this is right)

This is a brand new lure right out of the package. I know that the pic is a little blurry but I couldn't get my camera to focus in any more. Basically both hook eyes are "split" where they attach to the swivels on the body. Is this the way they all are. It looks like they'll open right up with a good size fish on.

Crush them right with pliers. They should be cut and pulled to the side not directly away. But if it's a quality hook this is not incorrect.

that is correct...i believe they are mustad open eye hooks. that one does need a bit of closing..like sixpack says, use pliers to close the loop, then it should not pull open. if you dont feel right about it you could always replace it with a vmc and use a split ring. the atoms i have get fished untill the hooks become rusty, then i change them out with vmc's.
