Fishing around heavy cover, roots or vegetation can prove a challenge without a weedless hook. The lightweight Mustad Weedless Sproat hook has a thin wire weedguard that prevents the hook from snagging. Perfect for tube bait soft lures. Rigging the tube lure is easy. Start by opening the weedguard and insert it into the rear of your tube bait. Continue till the tube is all the way through, making a straight presentation. Finish by resetting the weedguard on the point of the hook, never over the barb. Fish it Texas or Carolina rig style or just free swimming targeting Bass, Perch, Zander, Northern Pike or Walleye and many other freshwater species. The “MTL-V1” point combines a more efficient point design with a new sharpening process to enhance the quality. The result is a sharper, sleek new point shape with penetration resistance 50% lower than standard Classic Hook points! Mustad's Wire Technology and Nor-Tempering Process means that hooks are lighter and up to 30% stronger. Bronze finish.
