Gamakatsu Monster EWG (Extra Wide Gap) Hooks
stick it to em'
This hook is ultra sharp hook pierces rubber worms and sets well in fishes mouths with great hook-up percentage. The wide gap finds its way into fish on a regular basis especially when "skin hooked" with medium to medium heavy action rods. The red colored versions of Gamagatsu hook seem to attract fish especially when coupled with soft plastics that have accents of red. The only downfall is that these hooks are manufactured from very light wire. Thus the hooks bend when under the strain of braided line. I've found that the red hook's finish chips easily and loses its color after minimal usage. The hooks themselves are sharp and the wider gap ensures a better hook-up ratio. Just be aware that a forceful hook-set with braided line can flex or bend the hook if done so with extreme force. Overall a great hook that is well suite for Senkos and other thick bodied soft plastics.

I fished almost everyday this summer and maybe went through a few packs of hooks mostly because of the needs for different sizes. They stay sharp through hook set after hook set after snagged log after hook set. They bleeding hooks retain their red color for a long time and they are great for skipping way under docks. They thread through the worm great and are shaped perfectly to get a streamline look and feel. I will always use these hooks and would recommend them to anyone wanting to catch fish.
