Rated 5 out of 5 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. January 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by TomLT Great keeper Hook Ok, here it is, I have only used these hooks for one year. So far, they have performed very well. I fish 8 tournaments a year and only used these hooks this past year as extra hooks when I was short of the Bass PRo XPS hooks. These hooks performed great and I ordered more, but mostly for back-ups. The cost is a bit more than the BP XPS, but they are a great hook to have with you in the junk. T January 22, 2013

A:The same way you would a normal hook, the bend cloest to the eye of the hook will keep the lure in place , when you push the hook through the body of the lure make it weedless by putting the tip just under the skin .

A:After tying hook using a Palomar knot, stick barb thru center of head of worm from front to rear, turn and push thru exterior of worm, pull thru so that worm hides eye of the hook, bend worm slightly toward front of worm and push barb into the worm so that it just barely covers the point of the hook...be sure the worm hanfs straight!
A:Insert hook into head of worm and bring out about a quarter in and slide worn up to eye of hook. Spin hook and measure where it will sit in worm and reinsert there. Barely bring hook out on other side which is tex exposed. Slide all the way through and you can skin hook it to make it weedless.
