    Does anyone remember watching fishing shows years ago where they stated a spinning crawler was taboo? Had to glide through the water with no spin if you ever hoped to get a walleye to bite it.

    Remember when the slow death hooks first came out. Was fishing on alkaline lake by Streeter and was outfishing my partner 4 to one, and was really rubbing it in. Eventually gave him one to use. Should have charged him for it.

    Unrelated, but if I had a nickel for every time I said "Kinda crazy you should post this right now" on various topics I'd have at least a dollar by now! This site is so relevant to life it's crazy, hunting or fishing or otherwise!

    I remember. The experts claimed that a crawler had to run as straight as possible so that it didn't spin or a spinner rig wouldn't catch walleyes. Now if I use a 2 hook rig, I intentionally make sure there is a loop in the crawler between hooks it so that it does spin.

    These are really cool. I'd like to have lighter options than 3/4 oz for my pitching up shallow.

    I've actually had quite a bit of success with these when fishing from my kayak. They do tend to get tangled a bit when trying to cast them however.

    This would work fairly well. Key is keeping the bullet weight in front of the barrel swivel. That way it won’t impede the spinning action.

    Basically but Carolina rigs don’t have a barrel swivel. Specific to the slow death hook.

    VMC makes a slowdeath hook with the swivel buildt right into the hook shaft. Its called SPINDRIFT. I get the size 2 to make my own snells and if I want more spin on the crawler I just tweek it with a needle nose.

    It doesn’t seem like they spin that well. I have them but to me they just seem to inconsistent. Owner makes a snell with a super light maybe aluminum hook that doesn’t appear to be bent much but spins really well.

    Ok I’ve never seen one set up that way.

    The bead ahead of swivel keeps the green slime off of the swivel so it keeps on turning, kind of like an extra ball bearing.
