Experienced bass fishermen have already learned about the different types of bass fishing hooks available. Novices in the sport should take the opportunity to learn about the different type of bass fishing hooks and their particular uses and advantages.
Off Shank Hooks
Off shank hooks are best used with artificual bait. They feature a bend at the top of the hook where it is connected to the fishing line. Shank hooks are constructed in this manner by design. The way they function is by turning directly in to the fish’s mouth when the hook is set. The way the fisher sets the hook impacts whether or not he or she catches a fish, particularly when using artificial lures.
