I thought I saw a swivel on the line in an early part of the video. I can't imagine doing it without one. The line twist would be terrible.

I've got to agree Topwater. I've seen a similar hook for bass using a jerkbait. Ultimately, I didn't note any difference in strikes and set. However the worm action is pretty cool.

Yes, you do use a swivel to prevent the line twist. Also, I agree that this hook has been used for a while. I don't know how much of a secret it has been. I learned of it a few years ago. Maybe it has been used for twenty years, maybe not? Who knows. Can't hurt to try it this spring though. Good luck!

Catch'em fast!

That seemed pretty good looking! Has anyone tried this technique?

Thanks much for the video! I found it to be very interesting! I'll be certain to try it. Bet it will help with the short hitter's too.

Man I don't need any fancy hook to make a worm spin when trollin. Just when you hook the worm up on a straight hook skip about a half inch so theres a loop in the worm. It doesn't spin as well as the S D Hook but it works pretty good. And ya gotta have a good swivel. I like the ball bearing ones.


Sorry for the crude bitmap.

I ordered a couple packs of these. I am probably the one that got hooked. Hope it works as good as they say. I am always a sucker for new stuff for sure. I guess it looks like a good idea. Can't hurt to try. I have a few tied up WITH a good swivel of course. Every site I go to someone is talking about it, sales for them must have gone WAY up for sure. Skeeter

I have been using the slow death hooks for the last two fishing seasons. The first year I didnt have all that much luck. This season I had a guy show me how to rig it up a little better. Its makes a huge difference having the worm on the hook just right. You have to make sure the worm really spins good before dropping it down. To get this action you want, thread the worm on the hook nose first all the way just past the collar of the crawler. It almost always comes out perfect if you do this. Leave a tag of line when you tie your hook on that way when you slide the nose of the crawler up over it, the crawler will hang up on the tag and stay better. You want the worm to be on the hook just to where it starts around the bend of the hook not all the way and not straight down the shaft. Two days ago I had my best day ever and caught 50 walleyes in about 5 hours of fishing. Ive have several other days catching 20-30 eyes a day all on this hook. 1.5 ounce bottom bouncer, four foot leader, then tiny barrel swivel, a 8" leader then your hook. Don't forget the small barrel swivel or you will be untangling evr 10 minutes or so. Hope this helps, Good luck!
