A set of gang hooks is just a pair of fishing hooks that are tied back to back, which enables a worm to be hooked once in the head then hooked I bit farther down the body with a second hook, which results in a much more natural and realistic presentation than either of the previously mentioned methods. There is no doubt that a set of gang hooks is the best way to with a worm. The fishing hooks that are used to make a set of gang hooks are generally much smaller than you might be used to (size #6, #8, or #10) and this is because you want the shank of the hook itself to be as concealed as possible to the fish that you are attempting to catch.
CIRCLE Perhaps the best innovation in hooks to come along, circle hooks promote healthy catch and release. The design of the hook itself, when used properly, prevents fish from being hooked in the gut. Many sea anglers have a problem using these hooks because they require no hook set. If you do try to set the hook, it will generally come out of the mouth of the fish. These hooks are designed to move to the corner of the fish's mouth and set themselves as the fish swims away from you. Anglers feel a bite and simply begin reeling, slowly at first, then faster as the hook gets set.
Traditionally found in silver and bronze, manufacturers have recently introduced lines of red circle and j-hooks. These are designed to create a wounded bait perception, with the red creating the illusion of a bleeding fish. I have found that these can be extremely effective in tough fishing conditions. Also, both freshwater and saltwater anglers should try the ringed hooks on their next adventure. This ingenious hook addition allows for better and livelier bait presentation, promotes longevity and most importantly, keeps your bait in the bite zone for substantially longer periods of time, a key ingredient to getting bit.
So you are about to start fishing. First things first, you need to bait your hook. Do you know the correct way to bait you hook? Below are some tips that will help you attract and catch more fish by simply baiting your hook better.
First, use common sense. As simple as that may sound, I can't tell you the number of times I have seen people make some really bad hook choices. Match the hook size with the fish! Second, use some trial and error and learn from your mistakes. No one became a good fisherman overnight. All of us had to learn either from someone else or by trial and error. Thirdly, get a good brand of hook, such as Sakuma or Mustad. Try to avoid cheap hooks for the reason that they are just not up for the job, you don't want to let that fish of a life time get away because of a crap hook bend out on you! If you are going to spend any money on Terminal tackle you hooks should be the number one first choice.
Round hooks. These are the egg hooks and tuna circle hooks. The egg hook is a small short-shanked hook with a turned-out or turned-in eye almost exclusively used in river or lake fishing for trout using salmon egg as bait. Since salmon eggs bounce along the river bottom as they drift with the current, egg hooks are used so as not to impair this movement and impart an unnatural look to the bait eggs.
