Made from XXX Heavy Gauge high-carbon steel and designed to yank big fish out of heavy cover and structure, Trapper’s Heavy Cover Offset Super Wide Gap Hook provides extra bite and better hook-ups, making it ideal for frog fishing and flipping in and around thick vegetation and structure.
The additional weight and enlarged belly of the hook also increases fall rate and creates a natural gliding descent for weightless rigged baits like flukes and monster worms and creates a keel that keeps the bait from rolling over when being worked fast or erratically.
The 5/0 pairs perfectly with a 7” Gambler Burner Worm. I used it in thick hydrilla to fill the bulk of my weight in the Bassmaster Eastern Open #1 on the Harris Chain of Lakes where I put together a 12th place finish. I never missed a fish on it.
Since the first time I used the XXX Heavy Widegap Hooks they have had my attention. I was catching fish on a Texas rigged ole monster worm when I broke off and decided to give the Trapper a try. That was July on Toledo Bend. Been using them ever since.
