A heavier gauge hook pattern that is ideal for heavy shore and light boat fishing. It features a wide gape and a shorter, medium hook shank that makes it ideal for big worm baits when targeting cod in the winter and for large fish baits too for rays and smaller conger. The wide gape is useful when preparing bulkier baits such as crab when targeting smoothhound or bass. The Beast Uptide is a popular pattern for fishing with a pennel style hook setup when targeting bigger fish. These hooks are bronze coated, allowing the hooks to rust out quicker if the fish breaks the line during the fight.
