Bloodrun Impaler hooks

Recommended Posts

I always upgrade my spoons hooks and these caught my eye. I did see some negative comments about a high breakage rate while unhooking fish. Well I got some. Very sharp. Onto the water, they hooked up well.  BBUUTT they did break unhooking fish. Swapping back out to 2/0 Gamakatsu standard trebles. Hated to post this, but fisherman helping fisherman is what this is all about.

Yup if you twist them pulling them out they will.  Gotta back them straight out.  I had a few do the same till I figured it out.  Still the sharpest hook out there.  Have a good season!

Kinda hard to do with fish flopping around at times. We are a no kill team unless a top 5 fish so we release many fish. Thanks for heads up, they did hook up great, we need a longer lasting option, the standard 2/0 Gamma's work perfect not even sure why I looked at another option. I was interested in the "cutting" point.

There are two kinds of hooks.  Those that bend and those that break.  I have no issues replacing hooks that break when I take them out.  I don't like when hooks bend and I lose fish.  I have never had an impaler break and lose a fish but I have broke them due to me being rough and taking them out of a fishes mouth.
