Trailer Hooks

SA Bass - - Technology -

Adding a trailer hook will some­times help catch short-strik­ing fish, but Bolton is se­lec­tive about where he uses one.

“About the only time I’ll use a trailer hook is when I’m burn­ing a spin­ner­bait in re­ally clean water for small­mouths or spots,” he says. “I’ll never use one around shal­low cover or in a dirty-water sit­u­a­tion. A spin­ner­bait catches good-qual­ity fish. I’m of the opin­ion that if you get it around the right kind of fish, you aren’t go­ing to need a trailer hook to catch it.”
