Our Gamakatsu Offset Shank Worm Hooks Round Bend are perfect for Carolina rigging and Texas rigging worms and small creature baits. We fish them anytime we are dragging the bottom with a worm from 4 inches to 7 inches. The narrow gap allows the worm to act naturally on the bottom. If you were to use an EWG hook it would cause the worm to sit sideways due to the belly of the hook not sitting flat on the bottom. As always, these babies are ultra sharp and strong.
