Gamakatsu – Worm Offset EWG Red Hook
£3.75 – £4.25
Sometimes the plastic baits we use are just too thick and heavy to rig on a standard worm hook, so Gamakatsu created their Extra Wide Gap hooks (EWG).
With a regular Texas-rig, the point of the hook is pushed through the entire cross section of the bait and when a bass bites the lure, the plastic bait is pushed down exposing the point.
If the plastic is too thick, not enough of the hook pushes through and the point cannot connect deep into the predator’s mouth and you will either miss the fish completely or not hook it deeply and lose it on the first good run.
If you find this happening to you when you fish big plastics, try the Extra Wide Gap hooks from Gamakatsu.
