Flipping Hooks

Recommended Posts

What does everyone use for flipping hooks? (beaver/craw style baits)

I use a 3/0 EWG Gammy Hook, but would like to venture into some straight shank hooks and was wondering which ones have been successful.

I see the BMF hook is still hard to come by/not available?

Thanks,

Dylan

i like the gami fliping hook for the messy stuff, but the superline straight shank and owner twistlock and straight shank work good for pitching t-rigs.

I got away from the EWG hooks. Im now using a strait shank made by gamakatsu for paycheck baits. I really think I keep more fish pinned with these hooks. Plus I like the welded eye and I use a snell knot.

H2O Xpress Super Line straight shank 4/0 hook. I broke a couple of Gamakatsu EWG on hook sets, so I switched to a super line hook. I also use a snell knot when using these hooks.

Dylan, check these videos by my friend Burnie. Tested and approved on over 100 Port Bay Bass last spring, LOL.

Same as Catt - Mustad Denny Brauer straight shank round bend flippin' hook. If I'm having trouble with the bait sliding down the hook I'll use a Parasite Clip to hold it in place. You can get the Parasite Clips at ***. You could also use a toothpick through the eye of the hook to do the same thing.

Thanks Guys,

Francho, I do remember you showing this awhile ago and bought the hooks but never got around to testing it out, I will have to do that. Hopefully you have gotten out on Port Bay this year, it has been great.

As for the Denny Baurer hook do you guys use the snell knots?

Edit: What size Mustad hook to you use for the standard beaver?

Should the snell knot be the only knot I use for flipping?

I use a snell knot whenever I can.

Yeah, I've been on Port a lot. Look for black Xpress.

Will do!, look on the East side next to a fallen tree for a boat hoist all bent and broken...oops.

And are snell knots only good for flouro?

Either an Octopus hook like Francho posted, or an Owner XXX straight shank. Both of them are fantastic hooks. That Octopus hook is great. You get a very wide bite with it. You d**n sure arent going to bend it either. I use the 5/0 and 6/0 sizes for that hook. Lots of different sizes on the Owner. I use the owner for darn near everything though. Great worming hook.

You can snell with any line. I use braid for this stuff.

Sweet, looks like that might be my new knot. I love the way it snugs on there, and before I was having some troubles with the knot getting stuck around the hook eye, and this seems to solve it.

It's great with light line and wacky hooks too. Funny, I only started using it last year for bass, but used it for years on trout rigs.

I love using a snell for most hooks. Line doesn't really matter, though you do need to be careful when using fluoro. Like Francho, I've only been using it for a year or so for Bass fishing. Been tying it forever on some of my saltwater reef fishing rigs though. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes a very easy and quick knot to tie up.
