love these hooks
I pour my own crappie jigs and I like these hooks. Not only do they work well when pouring lead but they allow you to pull free from the brush many times without having to re-tie. They still work great for landing slab crappie also.

Great hooks. Not too stiff. If you pour your own crappie jigs, these are the best for the price.

Ideal for freshwater
I have used these hooks to make my own jig heads for a few months now. When I bought them I did not know much about making lead jig heads and later realized that these hooks are not designed for saltwater. They are sharp and work great on trout and other "small mouth" saltwater species. However I would not recommend them for saltwater anglers as they tend to rust, do not have a wide gap and are not made with heavy wire.
IF YOU WANT TO MAKE FRESH WATER JIG HEADS, BASS PRO HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED. IF YOU INTEND TO MAKE SALTWATER JIG HEADS LIKE ME, GO TO DO-IT COMPANY AND BUY YOUR MOLD AND THE HOOKS YOU NEED THROUGH THEM. BASS PRO IS GREAT FOR BUYING PAINTS AND ACCESSORIES AS WELL.

Depends on intended use. I use a #6 on some 1/16 and #4 other times. Pour my own lead heads so I can pick and choose. Depth, water current, jib bodies used and etc dictate what size of hooks and weights I use. Fishing deep may require 1/8 oz to get down as would current and the such. Crappie have a pretty big mouth and size of hook doesn't seem that critical, like the depth, color and action does to entice bites.
Don't know. Would suppose the best bet would be to go to fishing or bait shop that would be willing to order you a box or two. Expect that the demand isn't too great for the tinned hooks so BPS doesn't offer them.
