Perfect for pitching wacky rigged soft plastics into heavy cover, the VMC "Ike Approved" Weedless Wacky Hooks are the product of 200 years of hook making experience, combined with decades of tournament experience. Designed with the help of 2003 Bassmaster Classic Champion and 2006 Angler of the Year, Michael "Ike" Iaconelli, they come equipped with a wire weedguard that conveniently locks into place on the barb or the hook to protect from snags, then releases easily on hooksets. Featuring an extra wide gap and rounder shape that allows you to easily wacky rig your favorite soft plastics, it also has a wider bite for a better hook up ratio. Ike shared several of the tricks and tweaks that tournament pros have used for years to put winning fish in the boat, and applied them to this hook, like the smooth epoxy resin that seals the hook eye to prevent line from slipping through or sustaining unnecessary damage. Available in a range of sizes, the VMC "Ike Approved" Weedless Wacky Hooks have all the features Ike needs to compete at the highest levels of competitive bass fishing.
