Tacoma, Washington Gamakatsu's Shiner hooks are the perfect choice for fishing with live or cut bait, in fresh or saltwater. Whether your passion is favorites such as jumbo catfish or double-digit largemouths or briny species like redfish or flounder, Gamakatsu Shiner hooks offer the ideal balance of power and finesse.
The unique geometry of the Shiner hook provides plenty of room for even the biggest natural baits, while keeping the hook gap open for sure hook ups. The shape also means that fish often hook themselves, making it perfect for dead sticking. But unlike circles, you can set them to capitalize on even the lightest bites. Both straight and upturned eyes are available so you can rig your baits just how you like them.
Whether you're tangling with oversized catfish or targeting doormat fluke, Gamakatsu's Shiner hooks ensures you have the power you need to pull the biggest fish out of their lair. The forged wire retains its shape under the stress of the biggest fish. Even jarring hooksets from bull reds pulling against popping corks are no match for the beefy construction.
Despite their sturdy nature, the Shiner hook won't hinder the action of live baits, letting them work their magic. Live shiners, shad, crawdads, and shrimp, all remain lively and attractive. The deep bend of the Shiner hook also works well with cut bait, and even traditional catfish favorites such as chicken livers, hotdogs, or raw bacon.
Choose the straight eye Shiner hook if you like to tie direct; grab the upturned eye version if you prefer to snell your hooks on. Sizes from 6 to 6/0 are available, so you can hook fish measured in inches or pounds-with the backbone needed to make fish stories come true.
