Opti-angle needle point, chemically sharpened, nor-tempered, forged, 2 extra strong, black nickel
This stout, sturdy hook is an excellent choice when fishing small jigs and swim baits for larger fish. One of the most versatile jig hooks, it is ideal for Steelhead, Salmon, Bass, Walleye and in-shore species such as spotted bass, Specks and Sea Trout.
I use it on a home made jig head mold with a cone shapped head of 3/4 oz.
This is to use with sandeel-like soft lures fishing for European Seabass!
I am starting a plastic fishing lure company and i make my own jigs, i dont
like the ones on the market as they always use the cheap hooks, and they
bend, and cost to much money so i use Mustad , Owner or Gamakatsu hooks,
they cost more but are worth it,
Ive ben making my own Jigs for saltwater fishing, so far all the products I have
purchased have met or exceeded my expectation. Thank you for selling great items,
and thanks for the interest
The hooks made it to Pennsylvania in a very quick manor (thank you for
getting everything processed quickly! )
Per request, the 500 hooks I ordered were used to make the gamakatsu style
double collar jig heads that I use for bass fishing. The hooks first, are
impossible to find in a 3/0 size, which I'm more than happy you had plenty
in stock, and they are super sharp plus the 2x strong is a biggie (I've
never straightened one out, ever). These hooks aren't listed as a
compatible hook to use with this mold but they work awesome, it beats
spending a ton on the gammys. I've attached a photo of the finished
product, and compared to the $5.79 for 5 gammakatsu charges, well you do
the math, they are a fraction of the cost with the same performance if not
better because of the thicker hook.
I use them to make jigs for saltwater use. They are stronger that the regular
saltwater hooks, AND sharper, with the shorter shanks they have better hook-up
rates. I've caught small reef fish to 7' plus sailfish with the jigs...........all
1-2-1/0,2/0,3/0.............MUSTAD has some cool specs for fishing hooks.
These hooks will be used for pouring jigs, football and tube jigs specifically.
They'll be used exclusively to fish bass, predominantly smallmouth, either with a
crawfish imitator on the football heads and 3 - 4 inch tubes on the tube head. I
fish the lakes in the eastern part of the Canadian province of Ontario and western
part of the province of Quebec, I live on Ontario side of the border. The lakes are
filled with bass and a good sturdy hook is a must, some days your jigs get quite the
As far as the hooks go, they are extremely strong and just do not bend! I've used
the equivalent thin wire version but lost too many large bass due to the hooks
straightening. I use the Mustad since they are cheaper than the equivalent thick
wire hooks I've used made by Owner, and a lot cheaper than the equivalent
Gamakatsu. While they're cheaper, I've found that they're as strong as the other
brands. Excellent product at a more reasonable price.
This hooks are to make 3/4oz bullet jig heads for european sea bass fishing
with small shads, slug n'go, xlayer, etc.
As per the usage, I live near Buffalo, NY and fish the Great Lakes. These
hooks are for bass jigs (mainly tube jigs and 4" gulp). I like how stout
these hooks are compared to the typical mustad 2x jig hook that you can
bend by hand. When we are dragging tubes in 20-40' of water the thin wire
hooks will dull too easily and they can bend when hooked into a large
smallmouth. I have the typical Do-It round head jig head mold in 3/8 oz and
1/2 oz that I had to modify and open up just slightly to accommodate the
larger eye and shank. But with my last day out on Lake Ontario netting over
75 bass, 3 that were 21" or larger (over 7 lbs) and more landed fish on
these hooks compared to my thin wire hooks I'm a believer.
I'll be pouring ball heads for bass jigs. We mostly use them for bed fishing with a
grub. I usually use Gamakatsu hooks but heard these were actually better and much
cheaper. I may be ordering more in the near future.
Use these hooks for Pompano Jigs. Awesome Hooks.
