Hook suggestions

Recommended Posts


Need a couple thousand 1/0 (lightwire) hooks.

For my personal fishing, I usually bite the bullet & buy owner 5318's. This time around, the use is not personal, & Im looking to save a few bucks but I still want to use something decent. 

I see  Capt. Hooks has EC 3052L's available. Any opinions on this hook? Do these work on molds calling for 570-575? Ive seen EC 570BP's & I wasnt thrilled. Cant seem to find the "L"570BP's.  Any other 1's to look at?

Looking for a sharp, nickel-finished (black or red), suitable for lighter tackle fishing. Always been a big fan of the matzuo 117010&117060 hooks, but cant seem to find any in 1/0 or 2/0.

Thanks for any input or direction.

I would contact Jon Barlow at his website, https://barlowstackle.com/, to see if he can help you.

Thats a good suggestion & thank you. 

Sadly, I kinda scratched them off my short-list some years back when they wanted to charge me 9$shipping on a single 100pack of #4 hooks!

Maybe the years have brought them back to earth. I will check them out again going fwd.

I use the L3052 all the time in 4/0 and 5/0.  It has replaced Mustad hooks for me.  Shorty’s carries them in 1/0 to 6/0.

 Thats the route I went.  Took a flyer on 1000 1/0's. Guess I'll either like them or I wont!
