Gamakatsu Shiner Hooks
If you're looking for the ultimate hook, look no further than Gamakatsu Shiner hooks. While unique in shape, wide gap hooks may not be for everyone but are perfect for anglers who fish baits like pipis, prawns, worms, and yabbies. Gamakatsu Shiner hooks make it very easy to present your bait more effectively and vastly decrease your chance of gut hooking the fish, which is a huge advantage.
The Gamakatsu Shiner hooks are the result of years of experience and development. The hook point, edge and barb are created under unique manufacturing processes to ensure perfect sharpness and strength. Gamakatsu Shiner hooks are chemically sharpened to ensure a fine point for quicker penetration and ease in presentation.
There is no need to strike when using Shiner wide gap hooks on live baits or while you are using cut baits such as strips of mullet or mackerel. Its shape enables itself to hook fish, a feature that has made them increasingly popular with bream fisherman in both Queensland and New South Wales and King George whiting anglers in the southern parts of Australia.
The little details make all the difference, and Gamakatsu knows this. When they design their shiner hooks, you're on top of their mind because everything from quality material to fine detail is taken into consideration before manufacturing begins so that your expectations are always met with a high-quality yet consistent hook each time.
