You can order online from Cabela's, but it may be easier to make your own. Pick up a pack of #2 aberdeens and grab a couple of needlenose & bend them up. May take a little experimenting to get them to run how you want, but shouldn't be too hard. I've bent a few up, but haven't had a chance to run them yet.

I would be carefull bending them as you will weaken the hook. As long as you don't bend them back and forth you should be ok.

So I just placed an order with Cabelas, they say I'll get them next week.

After checking the Mustad web site they sure seem larger and thicker than a #2 Aberdeen???

Anyone actually use these yet???

"Slow death hooks" have been out for about 10 years now.

Thay are really called "Tru-Turn" hooks.

Mustad brand calls them "Slow death hooks".

They have been in high demand this year with all the advertising Mustad has done.

Look for the "Tru-Turn" hooks as they are very similar.

They have an offset hook shank for better hook sets.

You can pull half a crawler threaded on one behind a bottom bouncer and it'll do a slow irradic spin. A good technique when you're dealing with a tough bite. The true turns have been around for years. The Muastad slow death hooks are a new addition and have a bit more of a bend in the hook. Just another tool for the fisherman's arsenal.

    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it. 
    • I stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
    • Agreed... that is why I took the gamble on a brand that no one had heard of at the time... but the Big Horn grills are getting picked up by more and more vendors. Hopefully they don't figure out that they are giving away profit and decide to raise their prices! On the flip side, have you shopped for a gas grill these days? Holy smokes! The char-broil 3 burner basic that cost $129.99 3 years ago is now $209.99... what gives?  
    • I bought a motorcycle from a guy a few years back only to find out he never turned the title over in his name when he bought it. If I remember right I had to write to the DMV main office with a copy of the bill of sale before they would share the past owners of the bike. Then it took some detective work but I was able to track down the first owner and get them to write a new bill of sale.  Also had an old utility trailer I bought the same way, but for that I just re-registered it as a home made trailer.  At least there is Goggle now to look up some names if you can get them. Good Luck.  
    • dat looks darn good!!!!   what seasonings this time??  
    • My concern with the Statement of Facts sheet is it talked about watercrafts with titles.    I was a first time privet party boat buyer and saw a good deal. Got over eager and didn’t really know what to look for. The hull is a 97. I purchased it with only a bill of sale. When I brought the bill of sale into the DMV they said sorry can’t put this in your name or issue registration. The name on this bill of sale is not the actual owner.   Everything I’m reading about the application process requires actually knowing the owners actually name and information and requiring his signature. I have now idea who the real owner is and on top of that the seller is appearing to be mia...   Is there anything I can do or am I just SOL and learned my lesson the hard way?
