Question On Different Hook Styles

Recommended Posts

I've been Texas Rigging my Rage Craw with a 3/0 EWG hook.

Picked up some 3/0 flipping hooks.

To me noticeable differences between the EWG and Flipping hooks are the hook gap,and the fact that the Flipping hook appears to be a stronger hook.

Besides those obvious differences,is there anything else I may notice when I use the Flipping hook,such as placement in the bait or anything else?

You use it the same way as any other hook, now the straight shank flipping hooks are a different animal, for those I like to use ones that have a keeper on the shank. The only other thing is the hook eye, some flipping hooks have a larger gap were the eye meets the shank and make sure you set the hook a tad bit harder, while most hooks are really sharp, the stouter ones use thicker wire so naturally they need a little more pressure to fully penetrate, other than that no worries.

The Flipping hooks I have are more of a round bend,and they are not the straight shank style,they have the offset bend.
