Owner Mosquito Hook – Ultimate Live Bait Hook
Owner Mosquito Hook – by Owner is the best live bait hook you can use. A 12-pack of Owner Mosquito hooks from Owner Fishing are a great choice for every angler. These hooks have been picked as the best, all-around live bait fishing hook available. An Owner hook is the important part of you fishing rig. Size 14 is great for fishing spikes, wax worms and red, or nightcrawler worm pieces. The Owner Mosquito fine wire hook keeps bait moving longer. The hook tip does less damage to your bait. Moving bait equals more and larger fish vs. artificial baits. (From our side-by-side testing Live Bait vs. Gulp using Owner Mosquito Hooks).
Selecting live bait fishing hooks is easy. The smaller the number, the LARGER the hook is. If you want the most stealthy fishing hook, select smaller than you think because it is lighter and will hold on big fish. Steel hooks are very strong. Size 14 for example will work for a 15 lb. fish even though it is the size of your small finger nail. The angler must be careful playing that fish – BUT, you will hook up many times more by using the smaller hook! Double-edged sword. Our thought is, use the smaller hook as it is better to hook up six times and lose two fish than to hook up only once with the bigger hook.

We catch 15 lb. fish with a size 10, size 12 & size 14 Owner Mosquito hooks. Anglers like the performance of the Mosquito hook. The hook is small enough to get picked-up by fish without detection. Owner Mosquito hooks are the best fish hook to put on your line. Mosquito hooks are thin and powerful. Landing larger fish should require a fishing net to lift the fish’s weight from the water. Lifting a larger moving fish from the water may result in a lost fish and a bent hook. Net your fish! Don’t lift a big fish from the water. Our competition anglers use these hooks. We net a LOT of fish!

Great Live Bait Hook Fishing Setup
Owner Mosquito Bait Hook used as a live bait hook is usually snelled to a 6″ to 10″ line. Fine, thin leader material teamed with this hook, really improves your chances. The most critical portion of your fishing rig is the hook and leader line in contact with the fish’s face and mouth. Use the lighter Mosquito hooks in size 14 with a fine 2 or 3 lb. leader. Mosquito hooks help to get many more hook-ups. Once you have the best hooks, pair a thin line with a similar thickness to your main line (on the reel or pole). Example, we like to have a 4 lb. main line on the reel or pole and 3 lb. on the leader. With this, we would connect via loop knots.
Hook Snell Tool
You need to tie these fine hooks. And, you should use a tool for the small ones. With that, we highly recommend using the Hook Snelling Tool. Thus, the Snell Ninja helps you grasp the hook and tie the ultimate snell knot. With this Snell Ninja, is a vise clamp to hold your hook. With the Snell Ninja you can quickly snell and create a custom snell. Snells offer ultimate fish-hooking leverage.
Connect Snell to Fishing Line
Create an overhand loop (learn the loop here). With this, you can connect right to that loop. You can add a two-sided swivel to that loop. After you make the loops, connect the snelled hook to the swivel to eliminate line twist caused by reeling in bait. Line can twist in the water using a float. Thusly, we use a swivel connected to your main line and create a stronger connector and prevent cut-offs.
