Gamakatsu's Split Shot/Drop Shot Hooks are specifically designed for finesse fishing. The hooks have a perfect shape and shaft length for optimal use of plastic baits. Their unique bend design allows for better penetration and fish holding power.
For bass fishing, Gamakatsu's NS Black and Red color hooks are ideal for nose hooking soft plastic baits like Roboworms and small Gitzits.
For walleye, trout, and kokanee fishing, Gamakatsu offers Split Shot/Drop Shot Hooks in fluorescent colors. The light wire hooks are forged and perfect for finesse techniques. The bright hues of pink, orange, red, and chartreuse provide added attraction to draw reaction strikes and lure fish from greater distances, especially in stained water.
