Gamakatsu® Split Shot/Drop Shot Hooks Get Fluorescent Facelift

Tacoma, WA  -Gamakatsu® made their legendary Split Shot/Drop Shot hooks even more effective. The engineers applied the same vibrant, fluorescent colors on the finesse fishing favorite that have proved themselves on Gamakatsu’s very versatile Octopus hooks for even more fish-attracting mojo.
Though they were originally designed with bass fishing in mind, multi-species anglers gravitated towards the Split Shot/Drop Shot hooks’ and embraced its versatility. They used the forged, light wire hook for various finesse techniques for walleye, trout and kokanee. The research and development team at Gamakatsu coated the hooks in a variety of colors to make anglers more successful when conditions call for a fluorescent hook.
Fluorescent pink, orange, red and chartreuse are proven producers and were chosen for the new lineup. The bright hues provide enough added attraction to draw reaction strikes and lure fish from greater distances in stained water. You’ll benefit from this increased drawing power fish after fish, thanks to the durable finish that withstands strike after strike.
If you fish for trout, kokanee, or walleye you realize how important color is when determining the best way to catch them. These species can be very finicky and require the right combination of both color and flash in order to trigger a strike. Gamakatsu’s Split Shot/Drop Shot Hooks have the ideal bend that allows the long, thin point to be straighter to the shaft for better penetration and fish holding power. Whether you fish for walleye, trout or kokanee, the new fluorescent colors will be the perfect match and are available in sizes 4, 2 and 1 to work with a variety of baits.
