Break away hook on a Jig

Has anyone out there perfected the technique of a break away hook on your Cod fishing jigs? I have played with this on our charters, but I was never happy with the results. The idea is that when a Jig hangs up on the bottom, the hook breaks off before the line and leader.

When I fished cod in Korea, they use 40-50 lbs mono line for assist hooks. While the break away hooks are OK while fighting cod, they got broken when hung up at the bottom.
