    Im thinking about getting some of these things what do you all think? They look like theyll work pretty good since they say they turn towards the pressure of the pulling fish so i think im going to try them out.

    Tom give them a try and see how they work.I think they will rotate ok. The problem I have heard is the gap of the hook is a little small for larger bait. Let us know how it turns out.:lol:

    i use only tru turns on my jugs and limb lines. i have tried circles and kayles but just went back to tru turns. they are great hooks and have only had a few straighten out on trotlines.

    I use #8-#6 tru turn hooks for trout fishing. The turn in the hook holds the night crawler on, acting as a bait holder. For the kitties those is khales and circles.

    till this year I had a hard time finding them in the larger sizes, but yes I think that if the gap is big enough there fine hooks!

    Trueturn hooks is about all I use, shy of a few circle hooks and small ones for pond fishin'. They've yet to let me down, too. My 2cents.

    Thanks to all for the input. I thought about buying some for catfish but I thought they were mostly for plastic worms or other artificials. I may try them now.

    Try them out bro. As you can tell on this post many people think that they are great hooks.

    They are good hooks, I use them on trotlines every now and then. Sure, I have had a few straightened out and broken, but I have had that problem with other hooks too.

    ive used the smaller red ones for crappie and bluegill, none of the bigger ones tho, i use eagle claw or lazer sharp any time i can since they are american made and have never failed me. im pretty sure that the military puts tru turns in their survival kits? if someone could varify that since im not 100% sure.

    Yeah, Jayson yer right. But I have trouble getting Tru-turns in the bigger size. The #2 snelled aren't very strong....3/0 is biggest I've found. But I started to catch more fish when I went to them.
