What treble hooks to get?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys so I have a lot of crankbaits that are a few years old and still have stock hooks on them. They are rapala DT 6 and 10, Berkley diggers in the shallow and medium depth sizing, as well as some Norman DD22's.

 

I fish for fun and not tournaments, but I am ok with putting some money into this so that I know I have some quality hooks. What would you recommend? Thanks!

I don't know the sizes.  I just eyeball a matching hook.  You'll probably need some size 2, 4, and 6.  You might have to look up the individual baits to find the size: https://www.jannsnetcraft.com/Content/Parts_Sizing.htm

Owner St 36, You'll need the 3 sizes John listed. The DT 6 will take #6, some of Diggers might also. The DT 10's will take #4, the DD22s will need #2s. They're great, super sharp hooks and not terribly expensive.

Before taking off the stock hooks make sure you look at the orientation of the hooks. There is a right and wrong way to put them on. If you don't pay attention you can wind up putting them on upside down. 

 

Cabela's has the Mustad KVD Elite 1x Strong 2x Short Triple Grip Treble in size 2 on sale for $3.88 per 11 pack. They also have the Gamakatsu® Round Bend Short Shank Hooks in size 6 on sale for $1.88 per 12 pack. I wish they offered other sizes at the sale pricing as I could use some #4's. Standard shipping is $5 $50 minimum for free shipping.
