The "Ike Approved" series of hooks from VMC were designed with he help of 2003 Bassmaster Classic Champion Mike Iaconelli. The Heavy Duty Weighted Swimbait Hooks were designed to be an all-around soft plastic swimbait hook ideal for sparse cover and open water alike. The screw in bait holder designed affords weedless rigging for use in grass, wood or around other obstructions. These type of hooks are most commonly used for the 4-6" soft plastic swimbaits, both hollow or full body, which come without any sort of internal rigging. The hooks are constructed from black nickel and exhibit an extra wide gap design. The spring bait keeper enables anglers to quickly and easily switch baits without damaging the plastic and will extend the life of the bait exponentially. The belly weighted shank maintains the weedlessness of the swimbait while enabling it to be fished in deeper water or fished with a quicker pace up shallow when fish are more active. We offer the VMC "Ike Approved" Heavy Duty Weighted Swimbait Hooks in six hook/weight variations - see chart below for options. Each pack contains 4 hooks.
