In this #TackleTipTuesday video brought to you by @Mercury Marine, Elite Series pro John Cox explains how growing up in Florida taught him to use this hook more than any other. Cox admits he finds himself using a straight shank flipping hook for plenty of additional situations because his hookup ratio and penetration is much higher based on the bite of the hook. Cox demonstrates how he rigs the Berkley Straight Money worm while fishing some brush piles off the bank.
