The stock hooks are sharp, but have had 2 break when trying to land a fish. What brand and size of treble hook do you guys prefer for best hook up ratio? I appreciate and help in advance.

Thank You,

Brian

Personally I stick with the stock hooks. They are designed for the bait itself and I don't want anything affecting the action or performance of the bait. We hear very few complaints regarding hook failures. I personally have never had an issue with them.

What size line are you using?

The Gamakatsu Aaron Martens TGW Nano Finesse trebles are a popular alternative.

What he said! Those hooks are awesome on the Vision 110's. Personally, I test each bait in my pool before I change the hooks. If the bait performs perfectly, I usually leave the stock hooks on there. I don't want to upset the balance of that bait. Then there are times where you buy one and the bait doesn't suspend well (it's actually a slow floater). That's when I change the hooks out. I've used a Vision 110 with stock hooks side by side with a Vision 110 with changed out hooks and it was hard for me to notice a difference. The main key here is to use a hook that is the same size as the stock hook and one that's a fine wire. No 2x strong hook on a jerkbait.

Mark,

15# Big Game on a 7ft Med. Rod and Drag fairly loose. It is always the back hook that breaks.

Thank You,

Brian

I have great confidence with the Mega hooks. I would replace with the same hooks. You can buy them direct from Mega' web site
It is very difficult for a fish to throw those hooks.

I agree if they don't break them off.

Some MB dealers now stock the MB replacement hooks. They are less than $5.00 a pack. cheers

Water temperatures greatly effect the suspension of those baits. I wouldn't change weighting of those lures based upon a test in a swimming pool.

You are right. I take that into account when testing.
