What’s up guys? Travis here with Lucky Tackle Box just soaking up the rays in sunny California, in the middle of winter in the middle of a rain storm. But today I want to talk to you about one of my go-to hooks, and that's Mustad's four to five aught grip-pin edge hook. The reason I love this hook is because of how many different ways I can rig it and how many different baits I can throw on it. So I'm going to go over my top three.


The first one is Texas Rig with a little bullet weight. And I can rig that with worms, creature baits, and pretty much any plastic that I want. I can flip this around docks, wood, or any kind of grass.


Now my second technique is actually drop-shotting. This keeps the bait up off the bottom right in front of those fish, and also is a perfect vertical presentation for fishing right below the boat.


My third favorite technique is actually a hook rigged on a small to medium sized swimbait like Yamamoto Swim Senko. I usually put a split shot right above it as well to get that bait down a little bit deeper, give it a little bit more action.


But the reality is that this hook can be used in so many different situations. It's a great hook to have on you at all times, and that's Mustad's four to five aught grip-pin edge hook. Once again guys, Travis here with Lucky Tackle Box. If you want to watch more videos, hit one of the links on the page, and don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel.
