The family of Trapper Offset Wide Gap Hooks were designed to work with most baits on the market. The Trapper Box scales with hook size, making it easy to fit the right hook to your favorite bait. Ideal for Texas Rig, Carolina Rig, Dropshot and Wacky Rigging larger baits and other light line applications. The patented Trapper Box design improves bait retention and fish retention so you make more casts and land more fish. Offered in small packs (5 hooks for 5/0 4/0 3/0; 6 hooks for 2/0 1/0) or 25 packs.
This is my go to hook when I’m fishing Texas rigged plastics. I’ve caught a lot of fish on these hooks! The Trapper design locks them in and doesn’t let them go! If I’m fishing heavy cover I will go to the heavier gauge hooks and they work great for that. I have been using these for a while and the quality doesn’t disappoint! If you haven’t tried them, you’re missing out! Do yourself a favor and order a pack today!
I've been using Trapper hooks for a few months now, and I am very impressed with the performance. It holds your bait straight and keeps it there without having to fix it all the time. Because of the box "trap" in the bottom of the hook, it holds fish and traps them as they are hooked, which makes them very difficult to come off. I am replacing all my old VMC hooks with Trapper!
I have been using the wide gap worm hook since before they were available to the general public. (was given a few prototypes by the guy who invented them). They replaced my Gamakatsu hooks, and I won't go back. I especially like to rig a Z-Man pop frog on a 2/0 trapper hook. You might miss a few using a frog, but once you hook a fish, he's as good as in the boat. The hook will NOT come out. For example, on the 4th of July, from a small Massachusetts lake,I caught bass that weighed 5-13, 6-7, 3-8, 5-10, 3-4, and 4-15, all on that same frog with the 2/0 Trapper hook. I missed two fish, and lost none. Now I'm hooked too.
