I purchased the gamakatsu hooks to be used with tube baits and with gulp sinking minnow bait. The hook works great for skipping under docks and holds the bait in place.

by rockchalk06 Best Tube hook on the market!!
I fish tubes all year long and in almost every setting that I fish. They are one of the most versatile baits around. That being said, finding the right hook has been a long and tedious task. I was turned on to these hooks by a Bass Pro employee. After the first outing, pardon the pun, I was hooked for life.
My biggest complaint about hooks for tubes, is the tube falling off. 1-2 fish and the tube is shot. As much as I fish tubes, they can get expensive. I had been using hooks with the grip pin locks, but they left to big of a hole in the head of the tube.
These Skip Gap hooks fix all the problems I was having. The hook is a thinner wired hook so it leaves almost no imprint on the tube. The head of the tube lays flat on the lower portion of the hook and stays put! You can really drag these threw cover and the tube just stays put! They have an EWG type gap as well, giving you lots of room for a good solid hook set. Sharp doesn't begin to describe these. Gamakatsu has always been known for extra sharp hooks, and these are spot on for their quality. I have been able to switch tubes and reuse them with no issues. Making my plastics last longer is a big plus for me.
One huge plus for me with these hooks is the quantity them come in. I prefer a larger pack at a discounted price. The less trips to the store for hooks the better. You can get the 5 packs or the 25 packs. To me, this is a big perk of these hooks aside from their quality.
The 5/0 hooks work well with the thick 4.5" tubes and the thinner 4.5" tubes the 4/0 is ideal. As for the thicker 3.5" tubes a 2/0 works great and the thin 3.5" tubes, the 1/0 is perfect.
One thing you do need to remember when using these hooks is that they are a thin wired hook. If your going to use braid and use a big hook set, use a rod with a moderate to fast tip. An extra fast tip and huge hook set is sure to bend the hook and lose a fish. I run 12 and 14 pound fluoro with a fast tip and decent hook set with no problems.
If your a tube guy, give these a shot. You will be amazed how well these make your tubes last, fish after fish.
