Gamakatsu Round Bend Treble Hooks
EWG Treble Works
I have been using the EWG hooks on all my lipless crankbaits and hardly ever miss a hit. I use them as replacements on all my crankbaits especially ones that come without quality hooks to begin with. The regular round bend works well too, but I have found for me the EWG rarely loses a fish once it is hooked. They are extremely sharp and will hold this sharpness for the life of the hook. This is an excellent quality hook and also works wonders for bait fishing with any type of power bait, catfish dough baits, etc.

They make great hooks. Ultra sharp and hold a point for a long time without having the point bend over. Bought these hooks to make stingers for walleye fishing and couldn't be happier with the end product.

These hooks are and upgrade to almost anything that comes attached to a lure, I like to use the EWG hooks on my shallow running and small bodied crank baits, however I am not totally sold on these hooks, I think if they fit your fishing style for one kind of lure then you should use them for sure, however I would try out a few different kinds of hooks to see what works best for you. I got these hooks because I had a shallow running Strike King lure that had never landed a fish, I would get plenty of bits, get good sets, but the seemed to shake me every time so I put on some of these babies and pulled out a solid pig on my next trip!

CHANGE EVERY HOOK
ANYONE WHO FISHES FOR SMALLMOUTH WITH JERKBAITS OR CRANKBAITS WILL APPRECIATE JUST HOW SHARP THESE HOOKS ARE. MANY TIMES WHEN A SMALLMOUTH GOES AIRBORNE AND THROWS THE LURE THE REAR HOOK WILL SWING AROUND AND BODY HOOK THEM. OVER 25% OF THE SMALLMOUTH I CATCH ARE BODY HOOKED. I AM LOSING WAY LESS FISH OF ALL TYPES SINCE USING GAMA TREBLES AND I'VE TRIED THEM ALL. I OWN ABOUT 250 HARDBAITS SO IT CAN BE AN EXPENSIVE PROPOSITION, BUT ITS WORTH IT !!! AT LEAST CHANGE THE REAR HOOKS
