Which Treble Hooks?

Recommended Posts

The KVD short shank. Not cheap...but the darn things are sharp and you can up size one hook size on most baits due to the short shank.

Yeah, I put VMC on baits for others.  There is a good variety of shapes and sizes in the brand and the quality is decent.  But it’s not what I use on my own baits.

What do you use for your baits?

I was buying Eagle Claw for my baits since they are generally the cheapest.  I can also buy them at Walmart if I'm there and need to buy something fishing.

On my personal baits I use Gamakatsu, Daiichi, and KVD short shank trebles.  Japanese brands tend to use harder tempered steel which stays sharper longer and bends out less than the VMC (in my experience).  Nothing against VMC but I don’t like taking the time to resharpen trebles while fishing.  The short shank KVDs because their design and sizes are uniquely suited for upsizing trebles on baits where other brands tend to tangle, and tangling is one thing I can’t accept on any crankbait.

If selling get the Mustad KVD's from Cedar Run. Best prices and customers "think" they are good :) These have the regular points which are just OK

I think the Needle Point is the better more expensive ones.

Personally I like Gammy
