The main bait we have been using in the rivers has been some form of a Zoom fluke. They draw explosive topwater and just under the surface bites from all species of bass (we’ve caught spotted bass, shoal bass, largemouth bass, hybrid bass, white bass, and striped bass on them). Problem is that there is a difference between drawing strikes and actually hooking up with the fish that are biting. I decided to do a little experiment and rigged up 4 different twists on a stinger treble hook. I’m not sure which will kill the ‘fluke’ action, but I’m hoping at least one of these set-ups turns out to be a fish hooking machine.
