Mustad Slow Death Hook - Bulk 25pk

Mustad's revolutionary Slow Death Hooks feature a special kinked shank which generates a truly effective corkscrew presentation. The Slow Death Hooks are designed for what walleye pros call the Slow Death technique where a bottom bouncer weight is added to a main line with a medium length monofilament leader rigged with a live night crawler. This versatile technique combines the attractiveness of live bait with an irresistible action that allows you to present the live bait in places fast blades skip over.

We offer the Mustad Slow Death Hooks - Bulk Pack of 25 hooks in three sizes: 6, 4 and 2 in the bronze color.

How to use Mustad Slow Death Hooks


This is a versatile, year-round power finesse presentation. It can be fished fast or slow, has the attractiveness of live bait and adds an irresistible action. The unique hook design creates an enticing corkscrew presentation. This is a slow bottom-bouncing presentation technique that lets you present the bait in cracks, crevices and little corners that faster blade presentations skip over.


Attach a bottom-bouncer weight to your main line. Add a 4-6 foot, 10 lb monofilament leader and attach hook. Thread half a night crawler up the hook shank over the hook eye. There should be 1/4" to 1/2" of night crawler hanging off the hook.

To Fish:

Use your trolling motor and keep speeds from 1 mph to almost nothing. The key is to keep just enough speed so the crawler spins. Can also be used effectively when drifting.

Why Mustad Slow Death Hooks?
  • Unique Hook Shape: The special kinked shank is what creates the slow corkscrew turning action that fish canít resist. When threaded with half of a night crawler and trolled at slow speeds, the Slow Death Hook produces a wild action and reaches areas that blade presentations typically skip over.
  • Easy to Fish: The bend in the hook shank has been tested and perfected so anyone can rig and fish Slow Death hooks effectively. See rigging/techniques video below.
  • Versatile Applications: Can be threaded with a nightcrawler and select soft plastic trailer type baits. Proven on walleye but equally effective with other freshwater species. Size 1 and 2 for Bass and size 6 for Trout and Pan Fish.
  • Nor-Tempered: Mustadís exclusive tempering process makes the hook up to 30% stronger than conventional tempering methods.
  • 4.3 Microsharp Point Technology: The point length is engineered to be 4.3 times the wire diameter of the hook, which is the optimum ratio for maximum sharpness and strength. UltraPointģ hooks are 20% sharper and designed to stay sharper longer.
