Super Heavy Cover/Finesse Heavy Cover

Building on 2011's success of the Heavy Cover Worm Hook, Gamakatsu has added two new Heavy Cover Worm Hooks to create an exciting, versatile and complete Heavy Cover Hook series for 2012. The Super Heavy Cover Worm Hook is indestructible with a welded eye and extra heavy duty cold-forged hook wire that will not flex. It?s perfect for flipping into heavy cover or punching through thick overhead cover. The addition of an oversized barb holds hooked fish solid and the punch wire/keeper firmly secures worms so they stay rigged cast-after-cast. The Finesse Heavy Cover Worm Hook is a light wire, finesse hook that features the first wide gap straight shank hook for finesse worm fishing. Just like all the Heavy Cover Hooks the Finesse features a welded eye and punch wire that assures your worm doesn?t slide down the hook so you fish more, rig less and get more life out of your plastics. NS Black finish.


  • Super Heavy Cover Worm Hook is available in sizes 3/0, 4/0 & 5/0
  • Finesse Heavy Cover Worm Hook is available in sizes 1, 1/0, 2/0 & 3/0
  • 4 hooks per pack.

Weedless Split Shot/Drop Shot

Gamakatsu has done it?again! Another fishing hook first with the introduction of the new Weedless Split Shot/Drop Shot Hook.

Jig Head Wacky

New for 2012, Gamakatsu?s Jig Head Wacky is a vast improvement over other wacky jigs. The nickel/titanium weed guard is the first indication that Gamakatsu?s raised the bass fishing bar. This weed guard is small but mighty as it effectively clears hazards yet maintains its shape and rigidity under the most demanding use. The jig head is an improvement as well. Better designed to resist snags the hook eye is recessed to prevent getting hung-up in structure. Even the hook is different, a custom addition that?s based on a shiner hook but modified for the Jig Head Wacky. The result is a much higher ratio of hook-ups and landed fish than any other comparable brand. Available in NS Black hook and black and green pumpkin jig head colors in sizes 1/16, 3/32, 1/8, 3/16 ounce on a 1/0 hook.

  • 3 hooks per pack.
