 Having some trouble getting the hook through, hook falling out, bait balling up on the hookset. Texas rigging.

   I like this'un by Owner. from 5keepers  8/21/2011 7:03:04 PM

The Twistlock Flipping Hook is a revolutionary new flipping hook. While traditional flipping hooks have straight shanks and tedious methods of securing bait heads to the shank, the TFH takes this category to a whole new level. With the patent pending CPS (Centering Pin Spring), baits can be rigged quickly and perfectly straight with no extra modifications needed, and the CPS holding power is second to none. This hook also features Owner's new Zo WireT, that is significantly stronger than other traditional high carbon steel wires and will hold up with the largest of braided lines and the biggest of fish. This means smaller hook wire diameters for better penetration and the strongest of hook points that will not roll over or dull. Also featured on this hook is Owner's new Silky Gray frictionless finish with "Teflon" like properties that allow superior hook penetration and added help with bait clearance upon hooksets.

   Hopefully more from 5keepers  8/21/2011 7:08:41 PM

   Thanks David and Jeff from jyarb  8/22/2011 4:22:50 PM
 Was not familiar with either product. Greatly appreciate the help.

   I have a couple in different sizes, from 1SG  8/22/2011 4:30:13 PM
 Plus I have some jigs I want you to try, maybe I will swing by your place later today. call me if you will be home.

   Mustad from SMS #11748  8/23/2011 10:02:48 AM
 For Beaver style baits, tubes, and creature baits, the Mustad Big Mouth Tube Hook is all I use. Never have hook-up problems. Always bring the point straight through the bait and skin hook on the other side. Use tungsten weights because they're smaller and do not peg it unless you're punching vegetaion. The sinker will go straight to the bottom ahead of the bait and the bait will free-fall slowly the last several inches. That's when a lot of strikes occur and the fish will not have the sinker in his mouth, which many times causes a miss in the first place when the sinker slams into the back of his lips, causing his mouth to pop open. It works for me.

   Anybody used the Mustad KVD Grip-Pin Hook? from jyarb  8/23/2011 12:12:19 PM
 I noticed it is the Big Mouth Tube Hook SMS is talking about, but with the pin.

   5keepers, I've got some ordered to try from Spookchucker #10778  8/23/2011 12:47:57 PM
 They look like they could work well for flipping.

Any EWG hook is the worst hook there is for flipping up close. There is no bite for that upward hookset.

   Beaver hooks from Jeff Hahn  8/23/2011 12:50:00 PM
 The only hook I use when flipping Beavers is the Ohio Pro Lure Sure Grip hook (a Gammy EWG with a neat wire keeper) in 3/0. You can poke the hook all the way through and then run the point slightly back in the plastic, because the hook will lay right along the middle groove of the Beaver.

  I agree....do not like EWG!
Hope the Owners work well for you.
Lets us know as it may help someone.

   Yep I have started using that hook with flippin tubes. Terry showed me how. from Wackoman  8/26/2011 12:57:12 PM

He is making his out of 60 degree jig hook but the owner is the way to go.

 I use a Gamakatsu 3/0 EWG hook and it works well for me.

   3/0 Gama EWG or EWG Superline from Hubert #10913  9/7/2011 2:31:37 AM
 I use the regular EWG when fishing open water or light cover and the Superline version for heavy cover situations. The 3/0 size fits it well IMO.
