Iíve had no issues with hooking Calicos on the Warbaits (or other similar heads) with the weed guards. They eat it and hook themselves. Iíve had multiple 50 fish days using them.  The Owner Beast type hooks are for big swimbaits usually fished in the kelp on, or just under, the surface.

Thank you for the info Mark.  I will give the Warbaits heads a try next time we fish calicos in the kelp.  I have fished with friends who were skipping big swimbaits over the top of the kelp but never tried it myself.  I know that it works, but I generally stick with what I know unless I see someone getting bit better doing something else.
