The VMC Tuna Tamer Hook is a super strong, short shank needle point hook designed for Tuna fishing with live bait. The Tuna Tamer Hook from VMC is forged from extremely tough, lightweight Vanadium Steel. It offers up to 25% increased strength over the material used in regular hooks. The Tuna Tamer is perfect for rigging live bait when fishing for Tuna. To create an ultra-sharp, strong Needle Point, VMC employs a unique tempering process of compressing the fibers in a conical shape instead of grinding the point. This process ensures that every VMC Tuna Tamer Hook provides effortless penetration and resists pressure applied by any type of line. The features of the Tuna Tamer Hooks are great for using larger live bait options such as large sardines, mackeral and squid. It's always best to match your hook to the size of bait and line size you plan to use - too heavy of a hook may inhibit the natural action of live bait. These hooks are reserved for truly the biggest live bait options when fishing for Yellowtail Tuna. We offer the VMC Tuna Tamer Hooks in 6 sizes: 1/0 - 6/0 of the Black Nickel finish. Each pack contains 25 hooks.
