Owner Ringed Flyliner Hooks are excellent for live bait due to the tight bend, ringed eye, and no offset. The tighter bend is great because it lays flatter on the bait and insures the gamefish will not be able to pull the hook. The ring on the eye allows the bait to swim more freely and give a pivot point while on the gamefish so the hook won't pull as easy. The wire isn't huge either so it won't damage the bait as much as a heavy wire hook. It's still strong however and is a hook you can trust.
Looking for that extra edge, these Bullet Weights Tungsten Drop Shot Weights will do the trick. They give you greater sensitivity and get snagged less than lead weights. WARNING: This product...
