    Help with hooks....

    Doug Bert sells a stainless steel hook desinged for skirted lures and they are very similar to a gamakatsu SL12 big game fly hook..... Does anyone know where he gets these hooks from??? I no they come in from overseas but I can't find any website that sells them....
    Thanks Nathan

    my guess is that he wants a pretty penny for them?

    Check out Wellsys Fishing Tackle.... google them.

    That also pretty much answers the question in another thread about why there arent many smaller tackle shops around anymore that dont carry quality tackle.

    Peter Pakula was making a stainless hook nearly exactly the same as an SL12s called a Katana. They may be them. It might be worth an email to pakula to see if they are. If not id say a copy of them. What do you need 200 for? Pakula still has some katanas for sale on his website.

    Like mentioned check if wellsys have a similar hook. wellsy has all the latest and greatest hooks from around the globe, anything worth buying...he'll have. Owner jobus, pakula, roddy hays hooks and all the usual mustads.

    $11 a hook unless they are the size of a gaff head seams steep.

    Thanks guys...
    1. They aren't for long lining, me and a mate hav afew skirts that we want to rerig....
    2. I checked out wellsys and they don't hav them...
    3. $11 per hook is correct... If u hav bein to bertys u will no that it is an expensive store.... The hook itself isn't very big 10/0-12/0.... Perfect for skirts... Really thin but really strong

    Stainless hooks aren't very friendly to fish that just happen to break off with the hook left in the mouth. I will never use them under any circumstance.

    sl12 with an anode fitted are a hell of a lot cheaper and u dont have to file the barbs down

    Re: Help with hooks....

    Whiteman, you are right, stainless hooks that get left in a fish wont rust out. In saying that we have caught blue marlin with stainless longline hooks still in their mouths and they have eaten just like any other blue would.

    Jetskirider- what size lures are you rigging with these 11 buck hooks? There is plenty of cheaper (well proven hooks) around.

    Re: Help with hooks....

    Running them on 8-12 inch black barts, hollow points and Bahamas.... I'm not to fussy, I'm happy with SL12s.... But it's my mate that's fussy, everything must be stainless in his eyes.... I just thought if I could find them cheap enough I would change all the SL12s over..

    Brisbane boy: we hav done the anode trick to all the SL12s and we wash them after use but they still only last two trips before they start to get sum corosion.... Gavin has has these stainless hooks on all his lures, sum of them are upto 3 years old....

    Thanks for the help....
