    Owners.

    What's the matter, second guessing your hook selection from the fish you lost a couple of nights ago?

    Triple grips hands down for me. Even when they get bent up and fixed several times they still stick good.

    Triple Grips are hard to beat.

    MY BAD.
    They were stock VMC's JohnnY MaC....
    There's ONE Triple Grip hanging on that bait now.
    :p
    I usually don't put more than 1 on a bait - B/C they are so hard to remove , but since I have a BIGASZ$ pair of side cutters , I figure a walleye won't need his jaw where's he's going next...and I did add a few to some baits.
    :lol:
    I just hung (11/pack) a package of #8's & #2's along with somewhere around 40-50 #4's.

    Triple Grips for Me two, but the hooks that come stock on Reef Runners are pretty good - VMC Barbarians I believe. C-man

    Yes the do

    At one time they might have been VMC
    But these day's Rapala owns VMC

    I do like the Mustad Triple Grips and i've been upgrading Rattle traps with the KVD Mustad short shanks mostly on the belly hook

    On the spinners I do use the Gamakatsu #4 round bends on the rear

    My bait of choice tonight had a feathered ST36 Owner on the butt section , Johnny Mac.
    :evilsmile

    I just got in 100 triple grip #4's Monday and I had better order some more.
    :yikes:
    I told ESOX that I'd send him a sample pack - and Mr. Stein will be wanting a few as well.
    I broke my own rule and put on more than one per (a few cranks) , damn baits are hard to dig out of a fish for sure!

    I sure like the Gamakatsu 4/0 EWG Finesse for slingin' stick worms too.
    Good hooks there too.
    :)

    Well,
    You'll have to let the rest of know were your picking up the triple grips

    For stick baits If I'm rigging them weightless or texas style
    I like the Gamakatsu 3/0 EWG deep throat
    Same size as the 4/0 EWG but the shank with the point is about a 1/8" longer. I'll yet to have a fish spit one out

    My Favorite hook is a Gamakatsu 1/0 Wide Gap Weedless Finesse Hook
    It's the best wacky hook out there and it works for a bigger drop shot as well.

    I've had good luck with excaliber tx3's. The only bad thing is if I need something other than 4 or 6's they're really hard to find. Also since I swithed to florocarbon, that has helped sending any hook home. As far as worm hooks go, Mustad mega bites are the bomb. 4/0 and 5/0 for senkos have made me some cash this year:D

    I was able to find a few 100 triple grip trebles , I will probably offer lots of 25 Pcs. for $10 shipped.
    I expect them by next week - anybody with interest send a PM and I'll see if I can fill orders.
    I'll have size #2 & #4.
    They are short shank , like used on cranks.
    They are short , like the 36246 but have the ultra point and are actually nice & sharp! :lol:
