    Yeah i use them all the time,i like them myself.with the double barbs you wont have to worry about one getting off thats for sure.Its kind of a pain to get the fish unhooked but at least they dont come off.I think there great.

    Yes i use them. They are good for me. They dont seem to get in the eye of the fish as much as regular hooks do. They are kind of a pain to get out tho, but after practice its not bad.

    I like them, but I never see them in bigger sizes. I usually use 5/0 or bigger kahle hooks, and only see whisker stickers in 3/0 I think.

    Those who haven't seen them, they are a wide gap hook like a kahle, but with 2 barbs instead of 1.

    I use them and love them. I haven't missed a single fish after setting the hook good. I have caught up to 20# blues on them and no problems here. The double barb helps hold bait on too.:cool2:

    I've used them in the past for channels they are hard to get out till you get used to them. I use to get them at walmart and kmart, but that was years ago. They are good hooks and they do hold the fish once hooked.

    I just happened to have some on hand wile fishing this past weekend. I think Wistler was talking them up on another post a wile back. Man I love this site. Any way the cats were biting fairly soft and I could not get a good hookup with my c hooks (no run and reel with my bait runner) and larger kahle hooks were not working so good. So I switched over to the whiskers #2 and boy what a difference it made. my hookup rate improved dramatically, and I never lost a fish. They are a little hard to get out sometimes though. Is there a trick?
