These weighted hooks are our absolute favorites for rigging larger soft plastic baits to catch redfish, snook, and trout in water that is 3 ft or less.
We prefer the 3/0 size hooks for 3" soft plastics in addition to 4" and 5" baits that have thin profiles (5" Gulp jerk shads, Zoom Super Flukes, Zman Jerks, etc).
But for baits with more vertical material like 4" and 5" Slam Shady paddletails, we prefer these 4/0 hooks above the 3/0 ones.
Benefits: This type of hook vs. traditional bass-style hooks
- Weight on hook shank decreases helicopter-action in water when retrieving the lure which significantly increases strikes
- Corkscrew hold at the top allows for more fish to be caught on each soft plastic bait since it won't cut through the plastic when a hooked fish is thrashing around
Benefits: This specific hook vs. other weighted hooks for soft plastics
- These hooks are very sharp and strong, so they can easily handle big snook/reds and even tarpon
- Metal spike pointing through the corkscrew helps guide the hook onto the top of the soft plastic better than any other we've used
- Hook Size: 4/0
- Weight Size: 1/8 oz
- Quantity: Each pack has 3 hooks
These hooks are perfect for fishing shallow flats and bays with soft plastic baits.
Here's an example of how to rig a soft plastic bait using this hook:

Our shirts run true-to-size based on a typical t-shirt, so go with whichever size you normally wear for traditional t-shirts when ordering our Microfiber Performance shirts or our cotton shirts and this shouldn’t be an issue.

What is the best way to care for my Salt Strong Performance Microfiber shirts?
We recommend the following care instructions:
Proper care procedures optimize the life span of this high-performance microfiber shirt. Following these simple instructions will maximize the life of your Salt Strong Performance Shirt.
- Do not use Dryer sheets or fabric softener
- Do not bleach
- Do not dry clean
- Machine wash cold
- Tumble dry low
We recommend using a minimum amount of laundry products when caring for your garment. Fabric softeners & other laundry products can leave behind residues which clog the pores of these highly technical fibers, depreciating its moisture wicking capabilities over time, and preventing moisture from escaping to surface area. Bleach-free and scent-free detergents are strongly recommended.
