Leave it to me to use the one hook no one talks about..LOL. But I have to tell you folks I have had fantastic results on Channel Cats and Blues with this baitholder hook. They come out of the package extremely sharp and have a slight offset. They also seem to hold a point well. I have given them to my fishing bud and my other fishing friends and they have had the same results. I know other hooks are all the rage and the in-thing to use, but give these a try.
