Once in awhile you come across something that really makes fishing easier. Gamakatsu has
a skip gap hook (maybe somebody can put up a picture-don't know how) that keeps your soft plastic in
place and not riding up the hook. Really great for senko and worm baits, Just thought I'd pass
it along. You can even use them to T rig tubes and stuff.

I use these for a special presentation I use in the summer time with a fluke. I use it with Braid and Fluorocarbon. I do find they bend a little easily with the no stretch of Braid. Here is the picture.

I will never use those thing again. I used them prefishing a tournament last year and they did keep the plastics up but I missed 80% or more of the bites. I couldn't figure out why I was missing so many and my friend told me it was the hook. Seems he bought some too and never was able to hook up with them. I changed my hook back to a wide gap and sure enough started hooking up again. I found a special place for them in the trash.
