superline ewg offset worm vrs regular ewg

Recommended Posts

now i understand where you would want to use the superline but if you use it out of cover does it have any sort of negative effect compared to the regular ewg? The reason i ask is my parents got me 25 superline when i really dont fish much hard cover that it would typicaly be used for these hooks. i use my offset ewg for mostly senkos and my favorite the fat ika

thanks,

Mike

The superline hooks will cause your Senko or Ika to fall faster because of the extra weight. Sometimes that is a good thing. ;) Good luck.

also, how would you dictate when u would want to use each hook? You are probably the best person to ask for me also kmac since u are fishing the same place i am. except i am guessing u have a boat where as i shore fish.

I think the slower fall of a regular hook is most often the best. I recomend trying both to see what works best.

I am about an 90 minutes north of SIU, not too far from Waterloo. I do not have a boat at this time because I can't use one due to medical disability. Kinkaid lake has always been one of my favorite "local" lakes but without a boat probably not so much. Rend lake offers some good shore fishing for bass and crappie from the riprap along 154 (I think that is the number-the highway between Carbondale and Marion). Baldwin lake, at Baldwin powerplant, allows shore fishing along the north shore, and can be very good this time of year for both LM and hybrid stripers. PM me if you want to talk about details. Good Luck.

The Standard 4/0 Gamakatsu EWG hook uses 0.050" dia. wire and weighs 13 grains.

The Super Line 4/0 Gamakatsu EWG uses 0.062" dia. wire and weighs 21 grains.

If you're using "Super Line" such as PowerPro braid (certainly not monofilament), a Super Line hook

is very easy to set home beyond the barb (hence the name "super line"). Furthermore,

the thinner the wire the more rubbery the hook, and there's a lot to be said for a rigid hook during the hook-set.

In central Florida, Super Line hooks and PowerPro braid tend to dominate, in fact Bridgemaster Tackle Shop in Lake Wales, Florida

(the largest tackle shop in the area) does not even stock Standard Wire Gamakatsu Z-bend hooks, but only Super Line hooks.

A 5" Senko with a 3/0 or 4/0 Super Line Gamakatsu provides about the best tail-shimmy possible (hinges on descent rate).

The Tiki Stick has less action than the senko but is significantly more durable. All the same, when I thread a 5" Tiki Stick

onto a 5/0 Super Line (26 grains), I can't see any difference at all between the action of a Tiki Stick on a 5/0 super line

and a Senko on a 3/0 or 4/0 super line. Of course, we're into "Dropbaits 202" here 8-)
