Tiny worm hooks - uses and applications for bass?

Recommended Posts

I recently came across a stash of 1/0 Gamma straight shank worm hooks - pretty tiny, but I know guys like some pretty small drop shot hooks, too.

 

What do you use them for, for bass?  U-tails and small Creme worms to fish for small pond bass?  Anything else?

Do you have a number for these hooks besides 1/0 worm hook.

I use a #1 Gamma Roboworm rebarb for Zoom tiny flukes, Roboshad, and 4.5 " Roboworm straight tails

Gammy size 1/0 straight shank light wire (rubber worm hook) is stsndard fineese presentation hook with 4 lb to 8 lb mono/FC line with spinning reel. Gamakatsu makes lots of different style hooks, need a number or photo to ID the hook.

They work well with a modified mojo rig that I've used for many years. Putting a small 4" straight tailed worm on those hooks, with a small weight about 2' above it and dragging it slowly on the bottom, is very effective.

Good point WRB - sorry about that.  I had in mind worm hook, offset shank - not straight shank, per below. But I also picked up some 1/0 straight shank hooks to try too, as luck would have it.

 

I'm fairly new to using plastics - only one year in a serious way.

 

I typically use a 3/0 to 5/0 offset shank worm hook, or various EWG's with craws and creatures.  I have several packs of these in 1/0 and thinking about using them for small worms but interested to hear how others use them.

 

Thanks guys.

@Crestliner2008 I got some mojo rig weights last year and will put this to the test in the next week!  Thanks for the tip.

I use a 1/0  EGW worm hook on a mojo rig with a Z man hula stickz. It floats up off the bottom and is a fish catcher for me.

I use them for longer thin worms, not necessarily small in length. I prefer the EWG for drop-shot and some split-shot (mojo) rigs over the offset.
