Owner Offset Worm Hooks - Models 5101/5301
when money is on the line...
when money is on the line ( or if your as serious as i am, even when it is not) this is the only hook ill have tied on the end of my line. the owner 3/0 hook is a little thicker than most other hooks, but for a reason, its stronger, and with the cutting point and barb on this hook, its easy to see when you compare side by side to other hooks why owner is tops.
i have been useing owner for many years growing up at the reccomendation of my dad, then as i got older i performed tests,seeing how much force to dull, and how much force to bend, so on so fourth and owner came out on top almost EVERY time.
i used to use the gatsu' hooks when money wasent on the ...but got to the point where i was re bending alot of hooks, after snagging a tree in 20 foot of water, or going to the lake to catch big cats, because i still use my bass rig to catch cats.
i could simply pull to retrieve my rig. witch would be ok to save time on the carolina rig i guess.. but with an owner hook, if i snag a tree, if it dont pop off with in 2 or 3 tugs, i just go ahead and cut it...because you arent going to bend this hook...

I went to BPS looking for a lot of fishing items, one of them being hooks, I asked one of the workers what they thought, and they told me to use this in various sizes, now all of my hooks, I take to a hook fil, 8 times on each side, buy the 4th time on each side, these were ready to go, after the final four, well they were so sharp, you could use them as some surgical tool, if they go in your hand, you can just pull them out because they are so sharp that it does not even bruise the skin. great hooks, will continue to use these for a long while

Favorite hooks of all time
Do yourself a favor and spend a bit more money and get some of the strongest, sharpest hooks around. They will last for a long time if you just don't lose a lot. Which is difficult at times. But they come out of the package perfect and as sharp as trokar hooks in my opinion.

These hooks are super sharp and can be used to catch several fish before requiring replacement. I like the 1/0 size for Texas rigging Power works and other short, slender soft plastics.
