Zoom Super Fluke For False Albacore ?

Recommended Posts

Not sure this question belongs here but here goes. What hook would you use with a Super Fluke to get max casting distance and not kill the action? Would be on an 8' inshore spin outfit with 20lb braid and a 20lb flouro leader. We're 2-3 weeks away (hopefully) from the start of false albacore season here in the NE. Sometimes the slower retrieved bait is the one they'll key in on and the Super Fluke is the perfect size and has a ton of colors. Just looking for some options from the usual epoxy minnows, etc.

Thx T

white 4 1/2" sluggo on a RonZ jighead. JBs with single hooks work well too. Don't love the fluke, but any stout hook will work. I usually go with a live bait hook or an O'shaug. I find a slim small metal lure works well too. It's still a little early though. I'm bringing up a few Navy buds to do the striped bass, bluefish, albies, when it gets going.

Last year the Hogy epoxy 7/8oz in silver  crushed for me on MV. Worst day I had was 2 fish landed, best was 8. Bringing the Hobie Outback this year and may do a guided day...we'll see. The yak opens up a lot of possibilities where distance isn't as important. Still have a ton of albie snax left from last year as well as DD's.Will pick up some sluggos too. Think I'll have some splaining  to do when the bank statement for this month comes

I’d think you’d want some sort of keel-weighted hook to get some distance even in a breeze

 

Might also be worth checking out zman jerkbaits especially if bluefish will be around.
