3. Owner Weedless Wacky Hook
This is my favorite hook anytime I’m fishing a wacky or nose hook presentation. I use it drop shotting in cover and for wacky rigging soft plastics. The Weedless Wacky comes with a flex nylon guard that does an excellent job keeping it from getting snagged. I do make one modification though and that is to cut back the guard so it barely covers the hook point. The hook is strong enough that I’m not afraid to fish in heavy cover either. I use size 1 for plastics 4 1/2 inches and smaller, the 1/0 for 5- and 6-inch plastics, and the 2/0 for anything larger than 6 inches.
