Beginner anglers might imagine that a hook is a hook. But the pros know that's not quite true - there are many styles to choose from and gaining experience will help define which is best for your needs.

Taking on a species known for putting up a powerful fight? Offset hooks sink in and hold tight to ensure your catch doesn't lose the hook before bringing it in.
Strength matters, so be sure to consider construction. Carbon steel delivers the toughness needed for exposure to water, salt and other challenges of marine environments, and tempered or forged construction gives a boost of sturdiness. Chemically sharpened points add extra hardness, while offset fishing hooks and nor-tempering promote reliable performance each time you cast.
Hook size depends on a variety of factors, so be sure to assess your fishing situation before making a purchase. First and foremost, determine the species you're after. A smaller species is well accommodated by a smaller hook. . No matter what the goal is, prepare for fishing expeditions with items from our selection of terminal tackle.
