The "Ike Approved" series of hooks from VMC were designed with he help of 2003 Bassmaster Classic Champion Mike Iaconelli. The heavy duty wide gap hook was designed for fishing soft plastic baits in and around heavy cover for big bass. Created for fishing tough cover and in tough situations, VMC Heavy Duty Wide Gap Hooks have the strength for use with the heaviest equipment. The special 3-degreee offset point brings into play a trick tournament anglers use to increase hookups. VMC used a special resin to close off the hook's eye which eliminates any possibility of line slippage or knot fray from the hook. The features and style of this hook are absolutely ideal for pitching soft plastic creature and worm baits in and around sparse cover such as wood, grass and docks. We've received reports from anglers who used this for Zoom Brush Hogs and Senko's when fishing Lake Falcon. They absolutely loved them. We offer the VMC "Ike Approved" Heavy Duty Wide Gap Hooks in seven sizes: 2/0 - 80. The smaller sizes 2/0 and 3/0 are great for compact baits, while the larger models prove excellent for baits 5" and larger. Hooks quantities vary see the list below.
