I've seen this quad hook somewhere before... TaterHog maybe? Anywho, after I saw it I had to have them. Does anyone know who makes this? It looks like it would be a killer swimbait hook.

BassPro had a big sale on Strikeking quad hooks. I see why, they
break. No telling how many I broke. I quit using them.

D:censored:. They would have be excellent on my swimbait too... Cheap strike king junk.
Here's another question:
I was wondering if they make a treble that has a weed guard on it? I'd like to be able to bring my baits over weed matts. I figure I could make one using some strengthened stainless wire... but that just doesn't seem as much fun to me:teef:

Any of the major tackle supply places carry weedless trebles.

I think a quad hook would have too closed a space between hooks to allow good hook penetration. That's why round bend hooks work well, and the EWG trebles, because they have a big enough gap not to interfere with the adjacent hook's penetration.

What about a 1 or 2 ot (not sure how the ot is suppose to be expressed), or just a big hook. Currently, when my treble is put on my swimbait two of the three hooks rest flush against the side of the lure and one sticks perpendicular protracting away from lure body. The way I picture a quad hook would have two flush against the body and two extending out off the bait. I figure that a bass has a higher percent chance of getting hooked on the more exposed hooks than those that are flush w/ the lure body... see where I'm going w/ this? and it just looks really freakin' cool which always matters the most:wink:
