Curious of opinions using slow death hook with bottom bouncer and night crawler.
Slow death hook rig
I ran three slow death and three regular Mustads up on the Bay of Green Bay. Both did well and I did not see any advantage with the slow death hook as far as numbers but I did catch the larger fish on them.
Anyone else notice that the slow death hooks do not stay sharp at all? One bite and they need sharpened. Hopefully Gamakatsu will begin making a Relaxed Morbidity model or something.
Farm and fleet in beaver dam has a bunch of different brands of slow death hooks in the bargain bin.
They tend to run smaller than the number...
What size hook do you guys prefer?
H20. Thanks much very helpful! CARPIO
Carpio I sent you a bunch of stuff on messenger. I rig them drop shot style most of the time. I use braided main line and tie a polimar knot to a swivel. The tag end is my dropper to my weight. This way I can use split shots for weight when its snaggy because they pull right off. I also can use a football jig and drag the bottom or SLOWLY jig it. I use a flouro leader from the swivel to my slow death hook. It's nice to be able to adjust the height and length of set up. I have more success with this than bottom bouncers.
I hate fishing slow. But, the endorsement of so many on here prompted me to buy a 25 pack of Mustad Ultra Point Black Pearl Super Death hooks. Might be awhile before I try them but I will give them a shot
