There are hooks with more technical designs, but not many of them can match the Gamakatsu® Straight Shank Worm Hook's performance. Great for finessing, flipping and pitching worms, these Straight Shank Worm Hooks with light wire build and conically sharpened points deliver the perfect combination of strength and flexibility.
One of the Best
It has been a pretty reliable hook and can be used on all sorts of baits. It's one of those hooks that can be used just about on any bait and would recommend to any fisherman.

Hooked up trout with ease.
I used the straight shank hook by using a worm threader and blowing up the worm with air. I caught 5 (2-3 lb)rainbow trout.

I GET BETTER HOOK SETS WITH THE STRAIGHT SHANK HOOK. THE DOWN SIDE IS THAT THE BAIT SLIPS DOWN THE SHANK SOMETIMES WHEN YOU GIVE IT A GOOD HEAVE BUT THE HOOK SET RATIO IS WORTH IT, THEY LOSE THEIR POINT PRETTY QUICK BUT THATS THE ONLY DOWNSIDE.

i use this mostly for flipping but you can pitch it or even use it as a spinnerbait trailer.

they will work for you either way. the only difference is the way you are rigging. texas rigging has a slip weight, where carolina rigging allows the worm to float off the bottom while dragging the weight along the bottom
they work good. i say good because not great, sure they hook fish and hold baits.. but they are a lighter steel and can bend. ive rebent hooks after catching fish or removeing a snag. for a much better hook, choose an owner 3/0
