Owner Rig 'N Bass Hooks - Models 5137/5337
Good hook for inshore plastics
I use these hooks on the flats for seatrout and redfish using 5in soft plastic jerkbaits. I use size 4/0. When the grass is sparse I simply hook the plastic jerkbait through the nose and fish it. These hooks have their points in-line with the very end of the hook shank (up by the eye) which lets me fish the plastics nose-hooked with minimal weeding--up.
If the grass gets too thick and the nose hooked baits start getting weeded-up I rig the jerk baits in the traditional weedless manner and these hooks fish fine in that manner as well.
The cutting point is very sharp and the hooks work well in the salty environment.

The hooks themselves are sharp and appear well made, but they have a design flaw - the point folds over far too easily.
I have had the points on other "super sharp" hooks fold over before, but never after 1 - 3 fish, and never so consistently.
If you don't mind potentially having to change hooks after every fish, these might suit you, but I'd recommend spending your money on more durable hooks with better longevity.

One of the Very Best Fish Hooks I've Ever Used!!!
These are great fish hooks....well-designed & sturdy; a bit pricey, but worth the money, I believe.....and buying the bulk packs does save money. Since I started using these hooks, I find I lose far fewer fish & make more positive hook-ups....sometimes I just barely hook a fish that would otherwise have gotten away; and even though the fish may be barely hooked, it's usually hooked enough to successfully bring it in & land it. Any species of fish that bites while I'm using these hooks stands a better chance of getting hooked !!! I usually use sizes 1/0, 2/0, & 3/0 the most for catfishing.

Perfect Texas Rig Hook
The Owner Riggin' Hook is perfect for fishing texas-rigged soft plastics such as lizzards, worms, and creature baits weightless or with a very light slip sinker. The hook has enough bulk to eliminate or at least reduce the need for additional weight under low wind or windless conditions when a slow natural fall is getting the bite. The cutting point gets good penetration on hard jawed lunkers. I have been using this product for three years and would recommend it to anyone.
