Default Lazer Trokar Hooks

Received my free pack of hooks today! 2/0 Finesse Worm hooks, What techniques would these be best for? Only thing that comes to my mind would be using it with zoom super fluke weightless and flipping small crawlers.

I use the Trokar Finesse hooks for Roboworms, Zoom Finesse worms and other small, straight tail worms. You are going to want something considerably bigger for Flukes, I use something along the lines of a 4/0 EWG for soft jerkbaits.

I agree with JRob....they should work well for smaller worms, craws, stuff like that....nothing with too much bulk to it, though, like the Flukes.

Would i rig it like texas rig or thread the worm all the up to the eye like you would a swim jig? I usually always texas rig my worms.

You would tx rig it. The black plastic thing is a keeper that keeps your worm from sliding down the hook.

Rig an EWG texposed, then skin hook the point of the hook back into the top of the fluke. Regular T-rigging leaves too much plastic to push through on the hookset, especially with how relatively hard the plastic on a fluke is.

This is good to know. They sent me the 1/0 sized finesse hooks. Thanks!
