VMC Spinshot Drop-Shot Hooks
These are outstanding dropshot hooks. They are very sharp and durable and remain so after many catches. They also make it simpler to use stronger knots better suited to fluorocarbon line, like the Berkley braid, as opposed to the Palomar traditionally used. I know they seem gimmicky. I didn't bother with them until I saw them on sale, but I'm a believer now. I've caught small sunfish and large bass alike on hook sizes 6-1 and I can tell you that they are incredibly effective and a great deal.

This is a quality hook, well-designed for drop-shotting. I've landed largemouth up to 6 pound using the #6 size hook on 6 lb. test fluorocarbon line. I'd recommend these to anyone wanting to try drop-shot fishing for the first time, easiest hook to use with this presentation.

Best drop shot hook
I have been using the Spinshot drop-shot hooks exclusively for over a year. I do 95% of my fishing with a vertical presentation. (straight below the boat) With these hooks, I have been getting at least a 200% increase in hits using a 4 1/2" straight tail Roboworm that is nose hooked. As to missed fish or lost fish, it just doesn't happen. All of my fishing is for spotted bass and smallmouth bass and I will change out the hook about every 15 fish as the point appears to dull out some. I have caught numerous 5 and 6lb spots and smallmouth, 20lb catfish, 5lb trout and 3' long sqawfish without any issues with this hook. I highly recommend you give these hooks a try and you might be surprised at just how effective they are.

Best drop shot hook made. Very little line tangle. Dont loose many fish with these hooks. Hook stands up better without palomar knot.
