Skin Hook

Recommended Posts

Greetings to you all,

I used a fluke jr t-rigged as my bait today, the bass I was reeling in was holding onto it all the way up to the boat until it went under and got away. I looked at my fluke jr and it had appeared untouched except for a small cut. Why didn't the hook become exposed and hook the bass? I believe it was because I skin hooked my fluke jr too deep. I am guessing you got to bait it where it's barely skin deep. Or else the hook won't have a chance and it will stay buried in the skin. Thanks.

Dinks usualy do this to me the rest always pop the point regardless if how deep it was in the plastic. A solid hookset woulda drove the point threw the rubber as well

Are you using a wide enough gap hook so the plastic can get out of the way?
