If you are looking for the hardest stainless (Japanese) hooks available, these are for you! - When you need to resharpen them you will notice how much effort is required with a file to do the job.
Fishing is fun. Catching fish is real fun. When you are trolling for MAHI MAHI, TUNA, SAILFISH, MARLIN, WAHOO, or what ever is biting, you can fish with a single, or double hook rig. Home made, or store made rigs usually are fashioned from basic hooks that are cabled together with swagged crimps and then various tubing and wraps are applied to effect a stiff rig fishing system.
The quest for a STIFF RIG HOOK SET has been achieved with DOUBLE TROUBLE HOOKS. Each hook acts as a rudder for the other, holding in place while under attack by your fish. These results can be compared to the experience of those who have boated, sailed, or water skied, and lost your rudder. We took this principal and made our two hook rig thats really stiff. No extra crimps, or bulky wraps, pure and simple. DOUBLE TROUBLE HOOKS will increase your hook-up ratio. Guaranteed. The hook set tracks so true and when under attack holds straight as a designed stiff rig. With our patented DOUBLE TROUBLE HOOKS we attribute our HIGH HOOK-UP RATIO to this Rudder concept.
DOUBLE TROUBLE HOOKS give you the added safety that happens as soon as you have hold of the first hook, you have them both. We have talked to a lot of anglers who have suffered the point of the second hook swinging around and catching them. Results, Hooked fish not anglers.
DOUBLE TROUBLE HOOKS are hand made in Japan and each hook is sharpened three times before finishing. We suggest filing the point slightly to remove the plating to expose the sharpest edge. When rigging to cable leaders, we suggest a piece of tubing, or chaffing material to separate the two different metals. A quick and effective way to rig trolling lures. Its a simple operation: you crimp your leader through the hook eye and youre ready to fish. Leave the rear hook just out past the skirt. Positive hook sets.
