Free hook up face chat
The hook sits to close to the bait and it doesn't keep them hooked up. I lost several before that fish, I changed to the Gamakatsu EWG and never lost another fish!I thought I'd try it on Guntersville with a rattle trap and had a 8 fish on and the bait was so deep I couldn't see it when the fish first jumped. From: Comments: I have nothing bad to say about this hook. When you think of sticky sharp hooks this hook is the perfect example.
From: Comments: Used these for the first time this year on an LC Moonsault. I tried Owner ST-36s and Gamakatsu EWG trebles(which are also great hooks)but the shank on those were still too long and the hooks would still foul.But its worth it, for the piece of mind it gives you.Every since I started using these hooks I can't remember the last fish that threw my bait & got off.However, this was after grinding square bills on riprap all day, tons of smallmouth, two northern's and a 20 pound flat head on the Mississippi.
I also had one snap on a huge bowfin while square billing. This is a great hook and I don't use anything else when I am cranking.
