Rated 5 out of 5 by trophylad Very Good Shiner Hooks
Just got back from bass fishing the Big O in Florida. Used these hooks in the largest size for shiner fishing, no problems and they set well.
Have been a Gamakatsu fan for a long time now and these are the same great quality.
Get some Gammy hooks and you'll see what I mean.

I use these for Catfish, Crappie and Bass of all types.
For minnows use the smaller sizes, 6 - 1 depending on the size of the minnows.
I also use these with shrimp, 1/0 - 3/0. Also excellent on trot lines if your state allows.
Like all Gamakatsu hooks, they remain sharp after many fish, don't rust and are surprisingly strong for their size.

Highly recommend these for live bait. The thin wire and elongated J shape extends the life of your shine and lets him swim much more freely than a traditional bait hook.
One very important note however, is that these hooks are the SE (straight eye) model. Gamakatsu also makes a UE (upturned eye) model which is what their "wicked wacky" hook is based off of. Both the UE and Wicked Wacky hooks are better suited for wacky and drop shot rigging lures.
