A long shank hook that features small barbs either side of the shank towards the eye. These barbs are designed to help keep delicate baits such as worm and crab secure on the hook. The pattern is different to a traditional Aberdeen style hook, the bend of the hook is set at a more sweeping angle and the hook point faces inwards slightly. This is designed to help with hooking. Unlike traditional baitholder hooks, our Tronixpro Baitholder does not feature a beaked point, instead it has the same ultra-sharp, three point sharpened straight hook point as the other hooks in the range. Baitholder hooks are ideal for fishing for flounders, whiting, dabs, cod, bass and any other species which are likely to be caught using softer, delicate baits.
