When using thicker plastics the wider gap allows the bait to bend or compress when the fish bites to expose the point of the hook for better hookup ratio. I tend to use them with all plastics.

Huge gap....Wide gap. Wide gap hooks are good for large bodied baits like Super/Magnum Flukes, thick bodied creature baits, and large swimbaits.

@crankster I know it seems like they should affect the action of the bait, but I have seen no obvious drop off. I only use them on thick bodied plastics like creatures, as I prefer a regular offset worm hook for thinner baits. You got a great deal man!
