    I know I have seen a few that has been asking for a bigger hook in the Sickle hooks.
    I think I can get them up to a 11/0. The hooks above 7/0 get high in price. So guessing I may have to sell the ones say 9/0 and above in one packs 3 packs and 5 packs.. And more if someone asks for them.
    If theres enough people looking for a big hook. I will check into them more. And get a price.

    Good for you Pete. Thanks for asking. I know that some need bigger than the 7/0 that I use but they have worked well for me.

    Bill if I can stand to buy them. And not tie up that much $$ for a long time. I plan on stocking more hooks. But man they have gone up in price.
    But hope price of scrape metal going down will help that out in a few months.,

    Hey Pete,

    Sir can you explain what a SICKLE Hook is? I know what a Circle Hook is, but never heard of the other one. Is this a new style of Hook?

    MMR Give you the link. Thanks MMR.
    Yes they are sharp. They have been out for a few years. That is about all I use crappie fishing anymore. And most catfishing. Mean Gene got them in and I bought some from him. And theres good.
    I even pour my own sauger jigs with them.

    George you better have one in each hand. :smile2: Those guns can reach out and touch someone..
    Glad the 7/0's work on your channels. I know they sure hook up great here on channels and blues. And also Flatheads, crappie, Sauger and me..Think every time I pick up some. I have at least 10% of them stuck in me.

    Yes Sir Pete, I would also be interested in some of the 10/0-11/0's myself, That has been the problem in past, was the I think 1000 pack, and well I would like to live longer but I'm not real sure it would be that long :wink: I know your getting ideas now, but are you also thinking of carrying the smaller ones also? IE. crappie walleye, etc..... they sure make great jigs, even (dare I say) made a couple spinner baits with the 5/0 and they turned out well. Thanks, going to hold off till next month or so on ordering, until you get a better idea of what folks want. Thanks again!

    Pete: I use the 6/0's for channels, and (unfortunately) just ordered 100 of them from another vendor :sad2: I'm not sure exactly what size, but I would like to try either the 10/0 or 11/0 for larger blues.

    I placed my order for some sickle hooks and recieved them a few days later. I got a chance to use them Tuesday and caught 60 catfish. They are very sharp. I had ordered the 5/0 but they were a little small. Even though they were small the biggest cat went about 20 pounds. I think I will get me some 7/0 from Pete and give them a try. Thanks Pete, Randall.:006:

    I have been using these sickle hooks from Gene for a while and I am "hooked". Very sharp and the hook up rate is as good or better than circles. I would rather support a BOC brother than someone else anyway, so bonus is these simply are the best choice hook. I have used mostly 7/0 but would use a larger one if available.

    Are they strong? well that's a good question. I will let the picture speak for itself. This guy, BOC brother I took fishing, got a new avatar picture on this 42 lb. flathead caught on a 7/0 sickle hook from WildWolf.
