The backbone of the rig is the revolutionary Slow Death hook, designed by Mustad walleye pro-staffers Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz. Mustad’s new Ultra Point® Slow Death hook is an actual Aberdeen style pattern with a special kinked shank that, when threaded with a half of night crawler and trolled at slow speeds, produces a wild action and reaches areas that blade presentations typically skip over.
The rig is pre-tied with a 48”, 10 lb fluorocarbon leader, holographic bead and a size 14 Mustad rolling swivel for fast, intense action, and easy rigging.
Hooks available in three colors.
To Rig and Fish
This is a versatile Power Finesse technique in which the unique hook design creates an enticing corkscrew presentation 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. Tie Slow Death Rig to bottom of bottom-bouncer. 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. Use your trolling motor at speeds from 1 mph to almost nothing, keeping just enough speed so the crawler spins.
