Has anyone tried using , True Turn catfish hooks ?
Yeah Ive used 'em, they're extreamley sharp, but the ones I used wern't as thick as I'd have liked..good hooks nonetheless though
Yeah I still use them, in 4/0 to 5/0 for channels. I can either let them take it or set the hook and seem to catch more when Im using them.
I had a thread I started about old school hooks. It was about off set and tru turn, I had 100 percent hook-ups that night and another night after that. I like them and I use them and I keep them in my tackle box
Tru Turn hooks work good I like them.
The Tru-Turn hooks that are made in France are manufactured by VMC and are of high quality. They have a perma steel finish and are resistant to corrosion.
True turns is what most of my hooks consist of. Never had one fail me yet.
I like them to for panfish more hook ups and they will straighten out if snagged and can be rebent to catch more fish. I really liked the blued hooks but i cannot find them anymore. The mister crappie hooks are the closest I have found. I have never broken a truturn hook and can only remember losing one fish from straightening the hook. the hook had been bent and rebent many times form snags.
IF these hooks are turned (haven't read all the above) there is a right way and a wrong way hooking up live bait from the front of the dorsal fin and back!!!!!!!
This is a very interesting post. I have never tried a truturn hook before. After reading these post I think I'll buy a pack and give them a try. Thanks all:smile2:
They are all that I use in my trot lines and jugs.
TA2D uses Tru-Turn hooks quite often. Maybe he'll chime in on this one with some good input. They seemed to work really well.
Good hooks but, being made in france is not scoring any points with me.
Ive got tru turns, think they are a good sturdy hook caught flats and channels hold up good. they are very sharp, and seem to hold point good also.
