[Hooks] Hook Styles
« on: May 11, 2017, 04:43:06 AM »
With so many styles of hooks on the market,  choosing the correct shape can be difficult.  
Here is a chart to show the differences.
Let's start a list.

Style hook / Bait / Application 

Spring Treble/ Cut bait or paste/ Catfish and river fishing

Good info.  I generally just use the wide gap worm hooks.  I've expiremented with the straight shank flipping hooks in the past and just never noticed a difference.  I really like using the VMC heavy wide gap hooks.  They have the eyes poured with epoxy to keep your line from flipping through.

Great idea Kent!

We can have everyone give their input and then what I can do is build a nicely laid out table with graphics etc... and put together a reference chart for the hooks from the info shared in this thread

Circle hook: I generally use a circle hook for live bait fishing such as when catfishing. Some anglers also use this for wacky rigs
Octopus hooks: another hook commonly used for live bait. particularly good for minnows.
Mosquito hook: This hook is commonly used for drop shotting.

Keeper Hooks. Weightless or weighted / Fluke style baits or Flippin rigs.  Baits are rigged to be weedless

I believe we should also choose the brand too. I prefer Trokar hooks for the most.
Everyone has to believe in something. I believe I'll go Fishin.

That's a good idea. My two favorite brands are Mustad and Trokar.

I used to use Gamagatsu and Mustad almost exclusively until I heard that Mustad had outsourced to China.  

I have started using Eagle Claw lately as they have greatly improved the products.

I am still using Gammy and will be placing an order for hooks for the Ned rig.

Moaner Hooks LLC – Providing Bass Anglers Cutting-Edge Terminal Tackle at GREAT PRICES has really good quality. I've never dulled one. It's kind of a bad marketing plan because once you buy some you don't have to get any more unless you lose them to a toothy critter.

I mostly use Gamakatsu EWG style, VMC flipping an occasional traditional worm and a regular non-swivel Mustad or Eagle claw circle hook for drop shot.

I'll give Eagle Claw another look. Thanks for the input on quality! !

 I also am a Moaner Hook fan--Great hooks at a great price is my thinking on Moaner Hooks!  I also have never had a point roll on any of them I have. They make several different styles and I have used them all.  I also like Owner hooks--they also to me are a great hook. I like the hooks that have the bait keeper spring on them like Moaner and the Owner hooks I buy. I just think they hold baits better

I'm a fan of Trokar Hooks. Hookups are great too. They are a sharp hook.

I too like the gami and trokar hooks but lately I have been using mostly Owner hooks.  I like them and they perform well.  I also have a preference for hooks that are Black Nickel
