All,

Trapper Tackle has a number of new hooks.  I have no idea if they are a gimmick or an innovation in hooks.

I can already see that they'll "Tip Up" on the Strike at an angle - what are the sizes please??

All,

 

I am afraid I cannot "review" these hooks for you. 

Martin, just a guess, since they are an American company I'd say the smallest MIGHT be an #8 - more likely the smallest is a 6 or even 4.  They have the standard multiple shank configurations and even a treble.  Treble is for hook replacement on lures I suspect.

Isnt that for the likes of grub tails. Looks like you mount some sort if rubber lure on it.

Andy,

 

Maybe?  I just clicked on one for a picture... that would certainly be my first choice guess

They're a dropshot hook. Intended to stick out at 90 degrees from the line with the lure staying in place and the point exposed.

 

Phone, I'm guessing you are au fait with the technique since you guys invented it!

 

Looks over designed to me. One of those items that is more designed to catch anglers than fish!

I've seen hooks (around #2 to # 2/0 )  like that for sale in Texas - designed apparently for "Night Crawlers" (big,BIG lobworms)
