The Mustad Slow Death Aberdeen Slow Bent Shank Hook is an actual Aberdeen style pattern with a special kinked shank that, when threaded with half of a nightcrawler or earthworm and trolled at slow speeds, produces a wild, intense action and reaches areas that blade presentations typically wont reach. This is a versatile 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. To set up the rig, attach a bottom-bouncer weight to your main line. Tie a 48 inch mono or fluorocarbon leader to the bottom of bottom-bouncer. Thread half a night crawler or earthworm up the hook shank and over the hook eye. There should be up to 0.5 inch of nightcrawler or earthworm hanging off the hook. Row or use a trolling motor at speeds from 1mph or 1kn to almost nothing, keeping just enough speed so the crawler spins. Use it to target Walleye, Bass, Crappie, Zander, Perch or Panfish.
