Default Anybody know

Can a rattl-trap be made weedless. I fish in about 9 foot thick hydrilla in SE TX and theyre pretty effective when you can keep them clean.
Anyone who has a problem with getting a truck dirty shoul trade for a Volkswagon and a pair of panties.

The only suggestion I have is burn it through weeds. The faster it moves the more likely it will rip through the weeds and not grab hold of them.

You can also cut the front hook off the trebles. Its not something I ever do, but I've heard of it being done.
Selling live waterdogs for less since 2005.

Not really-burn them or cut the front tine off the hook, but if you are dealing with snot moss there isn't much to be done.

Default weedless trebles

They do have weedless treble hooks, might work.
