I really like the EWG Mustad Weedless hooks for the wacky rig. because they are truly WEEDLESS, (probably becuase of how the weed guard sits on the hook) but i m having lots of trouble setting the hook with the wide gap. (I have been using a 2/0 hook, is it too small?) wondering if anyone knows of a straight shank hook that is truly weedless? preferably a non-weighted Hook.

Gamakatsu Wicked Wacky Hook




These hooks are the bomb. They're very weedless.

I've tried many methods and different hooks including those mentioned. I'm currently using the straight shank old school eagle claw weedless bait hooks. They come in 5 sizes from 1/0 to 5/0. I'm really liking them--widely available even at most wmarts

The only problem with this weedless method is that after a fish or two the weed guard becomes too bent and has trouble holding in the weedless position. At least I have had trouble with this type weedless rig.

For really thin finesse worms and zipper worms, I'm using 1/0
For thicker stick baits 2/0

I also occasionally wacky flukes and other baitfish imitations 3/0
