Perfect for fast biting fish with an ease of use appropriate for kids, a long shank hook has a parabolic blend and shallow bite. Moreover, this type of hook uses a short curved in or modified hollow point.
The circle hook pattern has a deep penetration point with a wide circular or squared off bend tapering to an exaggerated entrant point. Popular among game fishers, this type of hook comes with an extra long shaft.
A ganging hook is a perfect pick for baits like garfish and in scenarios when you know the bait will be smashed against rocky terrain.
