    Crankbait Hooks

    I've been really happy with the KVD mustad 1x strong 2x short treble hooks since I started using them last year. I hardly ever lose a crankbait fish these days and I feel very confident everytime I stick a fish with these hooks:
    Mustad KVD 1x Strong 2x Short Triple Grip Treble Hook

    They come in 7 sizes, here is the list from largest to smallest:
    KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 3/0 11pk $13.99
    KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 2/0 11pk $11.49
    KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 1/0 11pk $8.99
    KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 1 11pk $7.99
    KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 2 11pk $6.99
    KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 4 11pk $6.49

    KVD Elite Series Short Triple Grip 6 11pk $6.49


    The ones in bold are sizes that I use. With the most common sizes being the 1 and the 2. I am looking for the biggest hooks I can get that will not tangle up with one another or get stuck on the bill of the crank. Nothing I hate more than a wasted cast on a crank that is fouled up. Here are examples on some of my Strike King Cranks with max sized hooks.


    For the 10XD I use the giant 3/0.
    6XD I was using the size 1 (actually in the pic they are size 1), but I switched to 1/0 recently which is slightly bigger and they do not get fouled up.
    5XD size 1, in the past I was using size 2, but the 1s seem to work just fine so went up a size on them as well, those are size 1 in the pic
    3XD size 4

    For the Squarebills
    2.5 size 1
    1.5 size 2
    1.0 size 4

    Anybody else have some hook upgrades they like?

    I second the Mustad triple grips. I also favor changing the split rings to Owner Hyperwires Owner Hyper Wire Split Rings And that's about as trophy as I get

    Very trophy, yeah I replace the split ring on the bill if it is not oval. The oval split ring really makes sure your bait runs true.Strike King uses oval rings so I don't mess with them. But all my Bombers and DD22s get these:

    6th Sense Oval Split Rings 25pk

    as well as the KVD hooks.

    Extra trophy points for the oval split rings. Something to note, it's easier to keep your knot out of the "split" and from possibly getting knocked or worn

    And if I'm feeling super trophy I will go over to Coufal's house and paint orange dots on all my cranks whilst drinking beer

    I am confused. Do I tie these crankerbaits directly to my TX rig Senko?

    great stuff!

    Do you guys run a swivel or direct tie?
    i like a quick exchange just worry about it running untrue.

    There is a thin line between a mallard's mating call and a human fart. The only difference is cadence and odor.
