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!

Great Bass fishing on tap for both numbers and size despite high fishing pressure and falling water levels. The fish are holding on rocky points and bluffs closest to the main lake and the bite seems to get stronger when the wind is blowing into these areas. 5″ wacky-rigged Senkos in green pumpkin hues and dropshot rigs are hard to beat.

The Oxblood and Morning Dawn patterns are working better in the stained water or mud lines, and I switch to the more translucent colors like Neptune Shad, Watermelon Candy and Purple Smoke in the clearer areas. Netting Shad for bait remains difficult as the falling water is keeping them off the bank for now. Hopefully they will come shallow when the lake stabilizes in a month or two.

Not much change this week as water levels continue to fall. The quality Bass are holding a little deeper now, mostly on rocky main-lake points and bluffs in the fifteen to twenty foot depth zone. Dropshot rigs, Ned rigs and finesse Carolina rigs are all working with the C-rig appealing to the bigger fish. We are focused on areas that have a little wind blowing into them. Stay away from areas that have wake boat waves crashing into them. The Bass have a hard time adjusting their swim bladders to the rebounding waves and will suspend or leave the area completely. Netting Shad for bait remains difficult as the falling water is keeping them off the bank for now.
