On soft plastics does anyone bury the hook anymore or is everyone skin hooking it?

Skin hook with EWG hook. Bury it with anything else.

Skin hooked unless its a flipping style hook. Those get buried mainly because of the hook set being stronger.

I use straight shank round bend hooks 95% of time.

 

I only use EWGs on plastics as thick as a Senko or Flukes & solid body Frogs.

Similar to Catt .... but I use both Straight Shank and Offset Worm Hooks .... buried in the plastic.

My EWG usage is minimal.

And, for leaving the hook point buried, threading the hook through the nose of a worm/plastic on an angle, not straight down, for many of the non-EWG hooks . . . makes sense. Just lining the hook you are using up against the profile of the worm or plastic before hand, a dry run, gives one the proper angle to come through for T-Rigging.

 

I think this sets the rigging up for the absolute best chances of setting the hook and having it penetrate the mouth of a fish.

 

*** For deeply ribbed plastic worms, where there isn't much meat in the middle? There is a technique I think most call Rattlesnake rigging where you run the hook through the nose of the bait but then come up and through a few of the rib folds off to the left or right side.

I noticed by using a ewg hook and skin hooking my baits I don't miss many fish.
