The Big River Bait Hook from leading hook manufacturer Gamakatsu has overtaken bait fisheries nationwide. The Big River Bait hook is a large hook designed with a unique bend and hook point angle that is designed for large chunk bait techniques. Such as those commonly used when targeting catfish and sturgeon. It is perfect for those applications due to its wide hook gap and the unique bend angles that let it accommodate a big chunk of bait. The hook also turns perfectly in the mouth of the fish and increases the hook-up rate. The Big River Hook has the necessary bend to promote less deep hooking that can hurt or kill the fish. Now, due to consumer demands for more sizes, Gamakatsu® is giving anglers additional options with the new size 7/0 hook.
“The Big River Bait Hook is one of Gamakatsu’s most popular hook designs, especially with steelhead and salmon anglers, so we decided to add a new variation in size,” said Gamakatsu® Sales Manager Jeff Roberts. “The barbless version makes it easy for anglers to adhere to rules and regulations where they apply without the hassle of having to pinch down the barbs on these forged shank hooks.”
Gamakatsu’s Big River Barbless Hooks comply with fishing regulations that require barbless hooks in certain bodies of water for certain species of fish. And it makes catch-and-release fishing much easier to do. These hooks don’t have a barb but instead feature a specially designed bend for firm hooksets. The unique throat angle makes it so the fish stay pinned on the hook.
The Gamakatsu Big River Barbless Hooks are constructed from forged, premium, carbon steel, that is durable enough for frequent, and heavy-duty use on the water. They are available in all popular sizes now. You can check out other Gamakatsu products here
