Fishing retaining walls? I want to get better with a fluke and need to start throwing it. Thanks

The answer to your question is Texas rigged weightless.

Nose hook with a center spring, unless I'm trying to get it through a ton of grass

I like a small bell weight in the middle of my hook,...texposed hook. the fluke will sink slowly, with a small wobble...a few jerks, and hold on. fish hooked

For retaining walls use just a good size swivel about 8" above the fluke. That provides just enough weight for shallow grass that grows around the walls.

I put a 1/16th split shot on the hook shank

I use a small drop shot weight. Just open up the wire clip, slide it on the hook and it will center itself on the hook in the water so it makes the fluke wobble as it sinks.

Would a belly weighted hook work with a Fluke like they do with the ZMAN baits?
