Mustad

Recommended Posts

I think we can all agree that Mustad has the best hooks. They're hooks that are sticky sharp, have long-lasting points, and are super strong. The hook-up ratio is phenomenal with these hooks. It's plain and simple, you just don't loose fish like you do with other brands. I mean heck, KVD uses them!

Do you work for them or something? :laugh5:   Mustads are a good middle of the road hook, pretty sharp and not overly expensive. I would put Owner hooks up against any hook for sharpness. The ST36 treble is pretty much the only hook on any of my hard baits.

I prefer Gama and Owner's over Mustad. I like the Trokar's too, but they're pretty pricey and they don't sharpen back up the same because of the way they're sharpened from the factory.

I admire your enthusiasm and am glad that you've found a brand you have confidence in. One thing is for sure though, things that "we can all agree" on are few and far between on this site. Bass fisherman have opinions as varied and diverse as the day is long, depending on what works best for their individual strengths and needs. Maybe this is part of the reason that the tackle and hook selection in most outdoor stores is so overwhelmingly huge to start with. Judging too by the comments that have been posted so far, while everyone encourages and respects one another's opinions around here, we understandably tend to bristle a bit when being told in absolute terms what we should and should not be in agreement with...

For my part, I do use Mustad treble hooks when I am using punchbait for channel cats. I like their J-hooks for panfish as well. For bass though, I personally find more success with Gamakatsu, but to each their own. There are still other brands I need to try as well.

Who cares about pimping Mustad hooks?  In my opinion, I think that we can all agree that a quality craft beer,  a lager, a pilsner, maybe a session IPA, totally enhances the entire fishing experience.   In fact, I think that we all can agree that first thing in the morning, after a few casts, we should stop what we are doing and pound a cold one, in doing so we are paying homage to the beer gods, who, after all, are in cahoots with the fishing gods.  If you think about your next few fishing tackle purchases while you are pounding a cold one first thing in the morning, so much the better. (but that is optional, if you are distracted by scenery and fail to think about tackle purchases, that is excusable.)

It is good that we can all agree on stuff.

im going thru the whole "upgrade" my treble hook process on my squarebills and been going down the path "who to choose" and on my squarebills rather to go EWG or Roundbend.

 

At the moment i rolled the dice and slapped some Mustad KVD's the 1x strong 2x short EWG. 

 

I did grab some Owners too the ST-36 but they are the long shank. which model is the short shank round bed?

 

just gonna try both and see what works best for me. But i do feel like i want that short shanks for sure, less hang ups, and on some squarebills i could even up size my hooks.

 

Feel free to throw some extra info or change my mind, ha thanks!

All but me!  But only because I'm riding a wagon.  Now, if you replace all the beer references with "cigar", then I'm going to have to agree with the rest.

if money were no issue, i'd only fish trokar or owners. 

gamakatsu would be close behind that, then mustad ranks right above stock hooks/eagle claws.  not saying they're bad hooks at all, they work fine, just saying they aren't the end all hook you might have made them out to be.

wow im surpisred to hear how low u rank Mustad. Owner to me has always been up at the top.

 

The few Triple Grips that i got even compared to the owners are sticky sharp. Way better than what was on some of my stock cranks for sure.

Mustads are all right. Not all that IMO (except for the triple grips, but then again I think I'm buying into hype more so than performance). I mean I'll buy them if their real cheap, but heck I think even VMC's are a better hook. I stick to Gammy's, Owner's, and VMC's before I buy Mustad's. IMO they're about the same as Lazer Sharp's.

Also, saying that they're the best hook because KVD uses them is like saying Hane's makes the best underwear because Michael Jordan wears them...

We can all agree that there have been way to many of "these" posts this year and it's only January. But the one thing we call agree on is fishing is awesome lol.

Tight lines

Further proof that we can't all agree on anything, I don't understand why anyone would willingly drink something that taste as nasty as beer does  :MSN-Emoticon-sick-146:

I think that we can all agree that Black Hole hooks made with stolen alien technology from Area 51 are truly the very best.
