Mustad Ultra Point (Slow Death Hook)
The Slow Death® Aberdeen Hook is an Aberdeen style pattern with a special kinked shank that, when threaded with half of a nightcrawler/earthworm and trolled at slow speeds, produces a wild, intense action and reaches areas that blade presentations typically won't reach. This is a versatile technique in which the unique hook design creates an enticing corkscrew presentation that lets you present the bait in cracks, crevices and little corners that faster blade presentations skip. To set up the rig, attach a bottom-bouncer weight to your main line. Tie a 48”/122 cm mono or fluorocarbon leader to the bottom of bottom-bouncer. Thread half a night crawler/earthworm up the hook shank and over the hook eye. There should be up to 1/2"/1,5cm of nightcrawler/earthworm hanging off the hook. Row or use a trolling motor at speeds from 1mph/1kn to almost nothing, keeping just enough speed so the crawler spins. Use it to target Walleye, Bass, Crappie, Zander, Perch or Panfish.
