I recently become a fan of Fluke baits. Right now, I'm rigging them weightless with a big 5/0 EWG hook. I know it always comes back to personal preference, so I'm just wondering how others use them?

I've read that bigger hooks affect the action; but for some its a good thing. I've also heard of nose hooking them. Anyone ever try that in our weedy MN lakes?

Interesting I never really knew what Rigging a Fluke was.

As I expand my fishing to other species like Bass mainly small-mouth right now its always fun to learn something new.

Here is a beginners guide to Rigging Flukes for anybody interested.

Ha! Being a bass guy, I sometimes forget folks fish for other things! Thanks for the great article PB!

And, Wow, if that was a "beginners guide", I can't imagine what his advanced techniques would be. Skipping a fluke in the space between a moored boat and the dock is a little tricky. And fishing it Wacky Style sounds tricky as well. I thought the darting motion it gets when rigged Texas style, like BB's pic above, is what triggers the strikes. I suppose you'd use the same hook for Wacky and Nose Rigging though. I just might give them both a try the next time I'm out.

I've had some good luck with the texas-rig in the shallows and even under docks.

Pulling Texas rigs through the weeds works well too. It's my favorite type of bass fishing...
