replacement Hooks

Postby davej » Wed Aug 22, 2007 9:01 am

I just got another shipment of Various Owner hooks.. These hooks are so sharp.. awesome points on them.. I plane on swapping out all the hooks on the Triple Trouts, Ragos, Kongs, Matt's Woody etc.. I wish I knew about those hyperwire split rings where made by them as well I would have added that to my order..

here is some of the ones I got.. I really couldn't tell what size the stock hooks are on all the above mentioned baits so I purchased a variety to try and match them up..

Awesome Dave! As long as you bought a variety, can you post what the size owners best relate to the original with each bait after you figure them out? :lol:

Sure... right before I finish the laundry, dust the house and take out the garbage and right after I go food shopping, make dinner and press the drapes.

Awesome! I know this is for hooks replacement but anything about split rings? The rings on the Punkers seems a little "cheap" for that size bait.
I will NEVER sell another 3:16 swimbait again!

Owner Stingers will always be my most confident hooks for hard swimbaits. :D

#6 Owner Hyper Wire FTW.

For hooks, I have #4 Owners on my 6" injected Punker...with #2s I get too much tangling. I have a #2 on the front of a 5" Punker and a #4 on the back.

I had a 3/0 ST-41 treble on my MS Mini Slammer. It was too large and stayed tangled in the line at front of the bait at least 50% of the time. Went to a 1/0 ST-41 and it works great and as with most all owner hooks sticks the fish and holds them.

Is it a good idea to downsize your hooks when upgrading...???

Pro: More refined action and finesse = More bites
Con: Bad/Less hook up ratio and therefore more lost fish.

How about Upsizing when upgrading...???

Pro: Better hook up ratio.
Con: Less refined action and finesse = Less bites

Or should you go with the same size as what's stock...???

I use Owner without fail. As a general rule, I upsize. Not necessarily hook size, but shank x2 or x3. I adopted this practice over the years after losing one too many of that rare haul. Yes, the weight can hurt, or help, but I really don't care anymore. I set my lures for application and do what I can to make them work. If I can't make one work, I simply don't use it.

I too am a huge Owner fan, the only time I stray is for a BB rigged Hudd. I like to upsize the gauge as well because I use braid w a leader combo for the majority of my SB fishing. As far as split rings go, Hyper Wire is the only real option.....they are the best. THE BEST JERRY! ;)

Only thing i'll add is that lightwire decoys are awesome if you are trying to turn a ss into an xss.
