Rated 1 out of 5 by fdw2580 Tossed em overboard Bought several packages. First of all line twist is still a big issue. Thought the swivels would help. Secondly, the hook set is not good. Last time I missed four straight hook sets. I retied a conventional drop-shot set up with a barrel swivel, never missed another set all day and line twist was gone. I tossed the rest of these things overboard. May 11, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by JABinNC Hooks fish and keeps them hooked!! This hook has saved my bacon as a co-angler. Baits perform very well on these hooks. Fish stay buttoned and your line won't twist. After 6 tournaments I have not had 1 birds nest. May 5, 2013

A:Don't have a photo, but the hook is easily attached to your line. Simply hold the hook with the point up. Tie your line to the top loop of the hook. The bottom loop is for the leader to your sinker. When you've completed tying the system together, the hook will be facing up. If not you've held the hook upside down.
A:Rig it as the hook point is up facing the main line. Use a palomar knot to attach a drop leader to the bottom eye of the hook. Length would be based upon the area you are fishing and where the fish are suspended, but usually a 18-24" is a good starting point. I would suggest using a lighter line for the drop leader that way if you snag by chance you may be able just to pull the hook from the leader losing only your weight and drop leader. Then connect your mainline to the top eyelet using another palomar know. Nose hook your favorite dropshop bait and hook up with some fish.

A:It mainly depends on the type of line you use. Drop shoters everywhere stick to the palamor knot which is great for braid but personally i use the trilene knot for mono and flouro.
A:i use a palomar on the top for strength and a 3 twist cinch on the bottom. that way if the weight hangs i can pull it loose without loosing my hook !
A:I like to use a palomar on the swivel end above the hook and a improved clinch on the swivel end below the hook.
Details:Why didn't BPS just specify the quantity....silly to have to even ask how many!!!
A:There are 4 in 1/0 size and larger and 5 in the smaller sizes.
A:You get 4 hooks for every thing 1/0 or larger and 5 hooks for the smaller ones.
A:There are four hooks in the size 1/0. I believe it is five in the smaller sizes.
Details:I use a very small octopus drop shot hook size #6. I dont understand the sizes they have listed for these hooks. Need to know before I order. Thanks.

A:a size 4 in the VMC hook would be pretty close.
A:I only use # 2 Hooks. I get more hookups.. Most fish are not hook shy they are line shy..
A:I would say it is about the same size, I was really impressed with the hook sets I got this past weekend.
A:Number 2 hook will be your closest. Although still quite a bit larger than the number 6 but not to worry, Number 2 hook is rather common sized hook on most finesse dropshotting.
