Hello y'all I've been using a weightless fluke with a gami 4/0 offset worm hook, hook up ratio is great been hooking fish very near or sometimes through the eye 😢 definitely not how I want to catch fish ideas on what's goin wrong here? Same result with loomis mbr 783 12# maxima green and a tsr 791 with 15# braid and a flouro leader. Maybe different hook? I had horrible hookup ration with ewgs so maybe one of ya pros can help.


Thanks


Speak up, you say this is your safety? Well, this is my boot, son, and it will fit up your ass with the proper amount of force!

IMO it is the hook size. I have been using a slightly larger hook than normal on baby brush hogs and am seeing the same thing. I dropped back down a size. Same hook up percentage. Mine were right at or thru the eye also.

I throw a fluke a lot and have found out that a 2 ought superline wide gap hook works the best IMO

Try a Mustad 4/0 Ultra Lock Work Hood. Switch to a Strike King Caffeine Shad in Smokey Joe.

Use a 1/16 tungsten weight and 2 bobber stops to keep the weight about 1 foot above the Shad. It works.

I use either a 3/0 or a 4/0 Owner J hook. Hook up ratio is very high. I use a 4 power rod and 15# Invizx fluorocarbon or 12# P Line CXX.
I use this same set up for throwing Senko type baits Tx.rigged weightless also.
