Rated 5 out of 5 by WIBassCatcher Best tube hook For hollow head tubes, this is the best hook I've found so far. I hook and land 95% of my bites when using this hook. I use the 3/0 for 3" and 4" soft tubes with success. For larger tubes or tubes made from a harder plastic I recommend cutting a 1/4" slit in the tube for the hook to slide easier. April 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by flippinfool Best Hooks Made IMO Alot of reviews have this hook as a great tube hook.....and it is. I just want you guys to know that it is the best worm hook on the planet IMO. I used these hooks years ago but fell out of favor with them when I started to use screw in weights to peg the worm. These days I have switched to tungsten weights and the problem solved by my old screw in weights was back. The worm won't stay up after a few casts. Finally I remebered these Shaw grigsby hooks and ordered a few bags. Not only is my worm slipage problem solved but my hook up percentage is throught the roof. These hooks almost always hook the bass out of the side jaw. They don't require a bone jarring hook set just a good sweep and the fish will hook itself perfectly. I now rarely break off on the hook set.....(I was breaking off from to hard a hook set) that seemed necessary to keep fish buttoned with other hooks. These hooks bite like a circle hook, are plenty sharp as is, hold baits perfectly, and will increase your hook up percentage. I use these on all my worms, creatures, senkos, lizzards, and any other soft plastics fished on bottom. They have helped me cash a check in the last 3 tournaments I have fished. Zero spitouts or shake offs and only two break offs. The breakoffs were likely my fault for not retieing and for setting the hook like a barbarian. You will be pleased. January 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by UncleJesse Great Plunking hook I was fishing with a buddy and I was using the traditional straight shank flipping hook for plunking. He was using the HP hooks and I missed more bites than him until I wised up and borrowed a hook from him. They work great for smaller profile baits like tubes, craw tubes or other smaller creature baits. July 26, 2012

Details:How are these rigged for tubes? Is the point pushed thru the nose of the tube and then pinched with the clip and the hook left exposed?
A:Think about it terms of Texas rigging... Open the clip. Push the point thru the center of the nose and out of the side of the head, only grabbing about 1/4" of plastic. Then slide the plastic up as far as you can on the hook - I push it up over the eye. Then close the clip so the plastic is trapped under the clip. Then bend the body of the tube and insert the hook thru the bottom and out thru the top of the tube body. At the end, the hook point should be lying flat on top of the tube, the tube should be naturally straight and the hook should be perfectly parallel to the tube body.
Details:What would be ideal hook size to use with 2" and 2&1/2" tube baits (length of the body of the baits)? I'm ordering online and want to avoid ordering too small or too large of hooks. Thanks.
A:These will all be too big for that size tube. I use a 4/0 for the 3.5 inch tubes but it is better on a 4.5 inch tube.
Details:Does it work well with beavers and hogs?
A:My friend uses all the time on the small beavers ~3.25" and raves about it but I found they tear the beavers more quickly than an EWG hook. I add my own "keeper" to the EWG and use that instead.
