Ultimate Walleye Hooks
By John Campbell

Ultimate Walleye Hooks By John Campbell Almost every article or TV show that you see or read tells anglers about all kinds of equipment from the line that they use, to rods and even to the boat presentation that they use. But what about the hooks? Isn’t that the first place that comes in contact with the fish? What do you want out of a hook? More fish ...sure, a hook's job is to penetrate swiftly and cleanly. But that's only half its battle. What happens afterwards counts just as much. Two areas that many anglers overlook when selecting hooks are the gap and the sharpness. The point of the hook should be bent up to increase the hook gap. With the hook pointing upward and a little to one side, the chance for a solid hook set is increased considerably. Instead of the hook point just scraping the top of the walleye’s mouth, it will cut and burrow in. I refer to this many times in my seminars as making the hook have a "cam action". In essence, this makes the fish hook themselves. A walleye will many times ingest water with the bait and pull the entire bait into its mouth. Watch a walleye feed. They will inhale the bait and expel the water through their gills. If the walleye feels anything foreign in the meal he has consumed he will quickly spit out the jig. If the walleye has just the bait in its mouth; you could still hook the fish. But if the walleye has inhaled the bait and the whole hook, much of the time the fish will not be hooked. In looking at all the fishing I do in a year I decided to use the VMC hooks. They consulted top fishermen and with their help created new hi-quality products, such as Cone Cut™ and Needle Cone points. They also pioneered the use of Vanadium Steel for a revolutionary new hook quality. VMC soon achieved a reputation as the manufacturer of the world’s finest hooks. The reasons I selected them are vast as well as the results while fishing. For example, when I am looking for a hook that is strong and has a wide gap I will use these hooks. V7199 ultimate walleye hook, the traditional octopus style live bait hook has long been the standard for live bait fishing for many species across the country. Made of Vanadium Steel and incorporating the "Needle Cone” point, the V7199 represents the ultimate in premium quality materials and craftsmanship. Because its 25% lighter than the competition's Carbon Steel Hooks, it allows for a more natural live bait presentation. It is available in sizes #6, #4 & #2, and fluorescent colors: pink, orange, green, yellow, and glow in the dark. V7105 wide gap walleye hook incorporates the same material and craftsmanship from the V7199 into a modified fish catching design, and you have the V7105 Wide Gap Walleye. It incorporates a new 'Wide Gap' bend that makes this hook ideal for spinner rigs and live bait rigging. A radical offset design sticks and grabs anything that it touches! Walleye fishermen were among the first to experiment with colored hooks, and VMC is proud to offer the Wide Gap Walleye in a variety of sizes and colors. They are available in sizes #8, #6, #4 & #2, fluorescent colors: pink, orange, green, yellow, and glow in the dark. Don’t forget to check the sharpness of the hook as you improve your hook gap. Many walleyes are missed because of unsharpened hooks. It is extremely important that the hook is sharp. Quite a few excellent anglers touch up the hook on every jig before it is put in the water. That's why fishermen all over the world are sitting up and taking notice of VMC's new "NEEDLE CONE POINT™".

Because as well as being the sharpest hook around, it's also the strongest. Next time you are on the water remember to get to the point and if you would like more information about the excellent quality of VMC hooks contact them at the following address.
