The VMC “Ike Approved” Heavy Duty Worm Hook was made for fishing heavy cover with braid and heavy monofilament and fluorocarbon. Designed with 2003 Bassmaster Classic Champion and 2006 Angler of the Year, Michael “Ike” Iaconelli, he shared several tricks and tweaks that tournament pros have used for years to put winning fish in the boat, and applied them to the new Heavy Duty Worm Hook. Now equipped with a 3-degree offset point, this subtle change greatly increases hooking potential. The eyelet has also been sealed with smooth, epoxy resin to prevent line from slipping through or getting damaged. Super tough and super sharp, the VMC “Ike Approved” Heavy Duty Worm Hook is the hook you want at the end of your line when you are wrenching big fish out of the thick stuff.
