Snelled Circle Hooks – Size 10
A 6-pack of smelled circle hooks from Eagle Claw are a great choice for any angler. This versatile spelled circle hook can fish most any species of fish because of its size and strength. Anglers like the performance of the shelled circle hook as it gets a lip hook near 95% of the time. Circle hooks are said to reduce fish mortality and are a great way to start fishing.
No need to set the hook when using circle hooks as these hooks find the spot. Circle hooks can get deep inside the fish, yet will slide out and turn when the tension is applied putting your snelled circle hook right in the lip of the fish.
Eagle Claw snelled circle hooks in the size 10 feature the featherlite with Lazer Sharp Micro-Ground points. These hooks are quality high carbon steel and made with a Nickel Teflon – the best hook Eagle Claw makes. It’s strength and performance make it a great choice for fishing trout, panfish, bass, walleye, perch, crappie or any species in your waters. 12″ of 6 lb. clear nylon line attached to the featherlike circle hook make this your choice for fishing lines from four to eight pounds.
We like to fish one line up from the thickness of the leader snell so that any snag or fish too large to handle will break at the snell. Breaking at the snell will allow you to get all the rest of your fishing rig back. Break at the snell and quickly get back fishing. If you break above the snell, you can lose weights, split shot, main line and floats. You might also break you rod tip if too much force is needed to un-snag your hook from cover. Another reason to create the breaking point fishing 8 pound main line and a 6 lb. leader is that you won’t spook the fish by ripping cover out. If fish are near the cover and you rip a branch out- you could wreck your fishing.
Eagle Claw Snelled Circle Hooks are ready-to-fish. Simply create an overhand loop (learn the loop here) and you can either connect right to that loop or add a two-sided swivel to that loop. Connect the shelled hook to the swivel to eliminate line twist caused by reeling in bait. Anytime you are casting a float or bait rig with live bait, bait will spin in the water – using a swivel connected to your main line will also create a stronger connector and prevent cut-offs.
