Savage Grip Treble Hooks Keep Fish Connected

 

If there is one word fisherman hate to use or hear it’s “unbuttoned.” That’s because the definition describes a hooked fish finding its way to freedom by shaking loose. Fish most often come unbuttoned from treble hooks, but Savage Gear has drawn a line in the sand with its patent pending Savage Grip Treble — a hook designed to beat fish at their own game.

From crankbaits to jerkbaits, walkers to poppers, reaction style baits with dangling treble hooks can provide fish just enough movement and leverage to dislodge those points. This often occurs when a fish jumps or thrashes at boat side. But thanks to a creative problem-solving design, Savage Gear has significantly reduced the likelihood of losing fish to thrown treble hooks.

The key to this hook’s amazingly high success rate is found in the innovative eye. With traditional one-piece rigid hook designs, the intense pressure and erratic directional changes a fish imparts on a hook’s point naturally extends up the shank to the eye, which links the treble to its lure. In a nutshell, what happens on the hook is directly transferred to the lure.

Not so with the Savage Grip Treble. Traditional hook design finds the eye formed from a continuation of the actual hook material; but Savage Gear creates its durable and flexible eye from 120-pound braid linked to the hook with an epoxy coating. The result is a hook that spins freely on the lure to absorb all the fight a fish can muster.

“What’s more frustrating than putting in the work to find fish, selecting the right bait and making the right presentations to earn that big bite, only to lose the fish when it throws your bait?” said Savage Gear Product Designer, Jose Chavez. “We don’t like that any more than the next angler, so we’re thrilled to debut the Savage Grip Treble — a design that will literally revolutionize treble hook baits.”

Available in sizes 4, 2, 1 and 1/0, the Savage Grip Treble is made with a black nickel finish. This high-performance wide gap hook is a good choice for retrofitting any lure with treble hooks, while natural bait pursuits from muskie to snook will also benefit from its flexible design.

Savage Gear products are developed by a team of worldwide anglers driven by a passion for capturing the largest predatory species in whatever waters they fish. The synergy of their collective experience and insight yields superior tools that allow every angler to pursue the same objective. Savage Gear — for those who dare to catch bigger fish!

Castaic Lake Fishing Report – 09/13/2020
Castaic Lake Fishing Report – 09/13/2020

Bass fishing was strong again this week despite smoky skies making it hard to stay on the water for very long. Bass continue to chase Shad early and late in the day in deeper water near the main lake. Topwaters, Flukes and small swimbaits are good choices around the shade lines. The middle Ski Arm and Elizabeth Canyon are good areas to try. Once the sun gets on the water the Bass go deeper and finesse plastics are pretty much the only option. We are one of the only boats still fishing live Shad every day and the bite is fast and furious.

The bite was decent this week as calm and hot conditions along with a full moon saw the fish boiling right up until the time everyone got launched and out on the water. Good areas are Center Point up to Kong Island with the fish spread out all over the middle Ski Arm. There are schools of Stripers boiling in the jet ski zone further adding to the frustrating bite. Fly-core trolling with olive over white Producer flies and white KastMasters put quality Stripers from five to seven pounds in the net. Most of the trolling action remains in 15 – 30 feet of water.
