Gamakatsu Big River Hook - Gamakatsu has developed a new hook designed for use with really big baits and really big fish. This hook definitely fills the need for a big enough hook to handle really big baits without being too heavy to get a good hook set. The New Big River Bait hook is ideal for the larger cut baits used for big Catfish and Sturgeon. The unique bend of the Big River Bait hook is similar to an Octopus hook but has a slightly more exaggerated slope off the back with a harder angle bend at the bottom with a slight beak point, giving it a more aggressive appearance than the Octopus hooks. This bend also provides for extra gap to accommodate much larger baits. The Big River Bait Hook is built slightly heavier than an Octopus hook in the same size range, is forged for extra strength and features an up eye for snelling. Sizes 10/0 or 12/0. Three to a package. Top 25 Category Product

Gamakatsu Big River Hook Reviews:



I started using these hooks 2 years ago. They are the best hook we have tried for consistent hook setting. If there is a hook I have not tried I am not aware of it. These hooks have a very good shape for bait placement. They set very reliably. I purchase them by the dozen and use them on a 3 or 4 hundred pound leader. We typically are bottom fishing in salt water for halibut and Salmon shark. The point stay sharp through lots of hard fishing. If you try these hooks be careful handling them as they are not particular what they hook. Good fishing starts with a good hook and for my money these can not be beat.

The Big River hooks are wonderful hooks for any of the bigger fish that you may want to catch. I am not well versed as far as salt water goes, but for catfish or sturgeon they can't be beat by much. VERY sharp, like all of the Gamakatsu hooks, but the 12/0 might have a couple that need to be touched up with a hook sharpener, but that is 1 or 2 out of every 9 that you get. Overall excellent hook for the big fish.

Great for flatheads!

I use these hooks for flathead catfish on the Mississippi. They are great when using live bluegills, perfect size and super strong. Will be buying more of these, once again great product from Cabelas.
