Owner Phantom Tube Hook
Great Tube Hook
This hook by Owner is very easy to rig and it makes the bait super weedless in all types of cover. Since the weight is inside it gives the tube a different action and allows you to actually use a tube like a jerkbait if you want to. I have caught a lot of fish swimming a tube and jerking it along with this hook. It darts around in different directions and then when you let it fall its just as erratic. The hook up percentages are pretty good as well, but depending on the thickness of your tube you may have to bend the hook out slightly to make it perfect.

good tube hook
i have used these hook alot. the are very sharp and i havent lost a fish with them. i started using owner hooks for salt water and trasitioned to them for fresh water and havent been dissapointed. they give a tube great action and dont take away any hooksetting power. the only thing holding them back from a 5 star review is every time you have to re-rig you tube you have to re-tie the hook you cant change baits without cutting your line. but i still will use them.

A unique tube hook, but is not the end all for tube hooks. The weighted hook provides a nice erratic fall, and a nice weedless presentation. However, the hook is fairly finicky; if it isn't rigged just right then it will spiral when you reel the bait back to the boat. Also, you have to retie every-time you want to put on a new bait. This is the best hook for skipping a tube under docks. I wish it used a tungsten weight and came in heavier sizes.

Never fish a tube without these
These tube hooks are the only way to fish tubes. The strike and hook-up rates are just as good as any other tube hooks, but the rate for snags and lost tubes is dramatically reduced. The phantom hooks can be a little pricey, and sometime hard to find the exact hook size and weight combination you need. Nevertheless, if you know how effective tubes can be on both small and largemouth bass, you will be glad you found these hooks.
