Bass fishing hooks for soft plastics

Postby FowlOffspring » Sun Sep 30, 2012 9:18 pm

Do you guys know what style of hook Mustad Power Lock Plus hooks are? I used to have a ton of hooks like that before my house burnt down but they were simpler and i cant find hooks like that,that aren't $3.30 a piece.

For Senko's and other soft plastics I've been
using these sled heads. Search Cabelas Sled Head.
I couldn't get the link to work.
I fish some pretty thick weeds and have landed a lot more
big fish using these. Once I ditched the bullet sinkers and
started using these I can feel even subtle bites. Setting
the hook is where you'll really notice the difference. My Senko's
seem to last longer too! Give 'em a try!

Are you talking about straight shank or the slightly bent shank? If the bent kind you can get tru-turn at wal-mart for pretty cheap. If straight shank, the prices went up b/c some pros started using them as flipping hooks.

I have fallen in love with the lazer Trokar hooks. I thought they were a big hype (I hate anything that is the latest and greatest) but i wil say these hooks are nice. However a simple 4/0 eagle claw lazer sharp works just as well. Especially for senkos.

I think they were straight shank but Im not 100% sure. They were just those kind of hooks that were cheap but got the job done, and the kind that you didnt mind losing.

Its like my blade baits for walleye. I fish in a channel where they used to keep a lot of log rafts tied up so there is a ton of stuff to snag up on and when I snag up and lose those lures, $4 a wack kinda gets to me. :mad:
