Super Fluke Jr. hook

Recommended Posts

What hook do you all use for the Super Fluke Jr (4")?

 

Thinking of picking up some 3/0 straight shanks. Will also use them for floating worms in the 6-7" range. 

 

Tight lines,

Drew

I used to fish the jr size, but have been using the regular super fluke as of late.  I believe I used a 1/0 or 2/0 EWG hook on the jrs.

Love this bait. I use size 1 or 1/0 Ewg gammy.

The standard is the 2/0, anything larger kills the action. Now I will fish them on a fish head spin or underspin as it is called with a 3/0 hook but the idea is not to have a ton of action.

Have you tried nose hooking instead? Very effective presentation for the small fluke type baits. I use a Gammy 1/0 Inline Circle hook. Just enough weight to give it a very erratic action. And hook-up ratios will benefit as well.

Okay, perhaps I should pick up some 2/0 EWGs instead. Those are what I use for t-rigging Baby Brush Hogs as well.

I'm a fan of the nose hooking deal as well.

VMC Finesse Rugby Jigs (2/0 ewg) work great for these too

My only concern about the nose hooking is the bait getting shredded pretty quickly. 

 

Anyone use 2/0 EWGs with floating worms - or should I stick with straight shank hooks (3/0)?

Nose-hooking is very popular, but "body-hooking" the fluke imparts a long fluid glide

that isn't possible with a nose-hooked fluke. When body-hooked in the groove provided,

the hook serves as a ballast and keel. For the "Fluke Jr." I use an Owner 1/0 Wide Gap Plus,

a lightweight hook that gives a 'Fluke Jr.' a nice lazy descent (Killer!)

Depends on how big the worm is. I tend to use light-wire Gammys in the 3/0 and 4/0 size for floating worms in the 6-7" range.

I've never tried that. It looks great! It's like a Banjo Minnow!

Great idea! What knot do you use for that hook? Do you use a snell since it has a up-turned eye?

For the super fluke jr, I use a 1/0 EWG Gammy or Trokar.

If you haven't seen it Tactical Bassin has a video on YouTube about nose hooking them. The way @A-Jayposted above is how they do it. I tried it today and I was pretty impressed. Had two beefy pickerel chomp on one rigged that way and other than the obvious teethmarks it's not worse for wear.
