Gamakatsu O'Shaughnessy Offset Worm Hooks
What can I say, they get the job done with the needle tip and super strength.

One of the best hooks I've used. Great for just about any application from Texas Rigging, Carolina Riggs, to soft plastic swim baits. Just pick the size you have confidence in and rig up your favorite bait. These hooks are strong and the "point" is as sharp as any on the market. They simply slide through the jaws of the toughest swimmers in the river or lake. No need to "cross their eyes" when using these babies, as a steady "swish" of the rod is all that's needed to set a rock solid hook.

The 1/0 size has had an issue with the hook points curling. I tie on a new hook and catch a fish and the point gets curled over causing dullness. The hooks are so sharp that the smaller sizes have this problem. 2/0 and above are perfect for worm rigs of any kind. The Oshaughnessy is the best style I have found for worms. The bend of this hook is in the perfect shape for allowing straight movement of the worm.

I always use Gamakatsu Hooks; to me they are the sharpest and strongest hooks when fishing for Bass. I prefer the #1 (O’Shaughnessy) offset worm hook when using 4" Senko's for Bass.
Gamakatsu is the best hook available and you can use them many times while fishing for Bass, they seem to stay sharp for a long time!
