Bass Pro Shops XPS Straight Shank Round Bend Hook
Great hook for big strong fish.
I love this hook for bait fishing for big Lake Trout. Using a heavy duty leader, I thread the leader through the eye of an 8 to 10 inch frozen sucker and cast it out to a shallow flat or ridge right after iceout and wait for action. The hook is sharp enough to easily penetrate the tough mouth of a big laker and strong enough to not straighten. I put a lot of pressure on big lakers using 50 lb test line. I usually release the big ones and since the hook is not stainless, I can simply cut the leader and release the big fish to fight again since I know the hook will quickly dissolve in the fish.

Best trout hook
This is the hook that our guide used fishing live pin fish for sea trout. I couldn't find this size and shape anywhere but Bass Pro. They have 5-packs in the store but these larger packs online are much more economical.
