The Gamakatsu Big River Bait Hook is a large hook with a unique bend and hookpoint angle that is designed for large chunk bait techniques commonly used when targeting catfish and sturgeon. The Gamakatsu hook lineup features several options for live or prepared bait, but when it comes to the really large game fish such as sturgeon and catfish the Big River Hook is most suitable. Catfish and sturgeon bait is typically a large chunk of dead cut bait such as liver or mackeral and needs a hook that has the right features to both keep the bait on and still hook the fish. The Big River Hook is perfect for these applications due to its large wide gap with unique bend angles that accommodates a chunk of bait, but also turns perfectly in the mouth of the fish and increases the hook-up ratio. When fishing in this manner its important that the fish totally consumes the bait and essentially sets itself up to be hooked. The Big River Hook has the necessary bend that promotes less deep hooking that can really hurt or kill the fish. We offer the Gamakatsu Big River Bait Hook in three sizes: 4/0 - 6/0 with each pack containing six hooks.
