List Of 5 Types Of Fishing Hooks

Fishing Hooks

1) Inline Circle Hook 

Inline circle hook

 In line circle hooks are the best circle hooks for catching and releasing fish.  These circle hooks are designed to hook fish in the corner of the mouth, when pressure is applied to the tip of the hook, it makes the hook move in a circular motion and hooks the fish in this way. 

2) Offset Circle Hooks 

Offset Circle Hook

Offset circle hooks move in a circular motion just like a regular circle hook, however the point of the hook is set to the side of the shank of the hook, in this way, the point more easily finds a place to apply pressure and starts the circle hooking process more easily. Proponents of inline circle hooks say that the offset portion of the hook makes it more like a J-Hook in that it just hooks anywhere it grabs and makes this hook less conducive to properly releasing a hook, since it is may grab internal organs on its way out. 

3) Live Bait Hook 

Live Bait Hook

 The live bait hook is a type of J-hook with a short shank.  This gives it drag in the water as a live bait swims, and therefore allows the live bait to swim more efficiently. 

4) Long Shank Hook 

Long Shank Hook

Long shank hooks, like the name suggests, have long shanks.   For fish with sharp teeth, this hook can prevent them from cutting through your fishing line. This applies to bait and to trolling lures.  

5) Treble Hook 

Treble Hook

The treble hook is a three sided hook, that is made like a grappling hook and is meant to hook anything that comes at it.  This hook is often used in lures, and for speedy and toothy predators such as wahoo and kingfish, that come after a bait quickly, but may not consume it entirely, or without any bait at all simply to snag fish.  Opponents for using this type of hook have two different arguments against using it.  One they say that this hook makes releasing much harder, the other is that while the treble hook allows you to hook a fish easily, it does not always hook them well.
