I just picked up some Zoom Flukes so I can try and find any Halibut that wanna come out and play Thumbs Up . Just wondering what style and size hook I should be using if I'm going to be dropshotting them?

What size are the flukes you picked up? I use either mosquito hooks or wide gap hooks when around structure. Size of the hook depends on size of the fluke.

For rigging I play around with it. Nose hook, thread it the way you would with a lead head, or even wacky rig. Just play with it until you find out what the fish want or whichever makes you feel comfortable.

I like circle hooks for DS in flukes, 3/8 oz weight 8-12 inches depending on application.

OK, here is the setup: For super flukes use a 3/0 or 4/0 offset worm hook, not wide gap. Hook it Texposed and drop shot it 12-18" above a 1/2-1oz weight, depending on the current. That long hook will protect the line from those razor-sharp teeth. You might lift it and shake it once in a while.

For a different look use a jighead with a fluke or grub as the DS weight. Slick them both up with Unibutter!

You can also use a Scrounger rig, they come in a variety of sizes, they work well for catching striped bass, as you can swim/bounce them on the bottom. They are like a jig head, cept they have this plastic oval bill that makes em almost snag proof, and it creates a vibration that fish usually like.

Check em out at  Scrounger.com

With the above rig, you can cover much more water w/o having to cast so much..Red Smile
