Gamakatsu Wide Gape’s are deadly sharp trebles featuring a wider gape for the hook size with the result that they hook up a lot more fish than normal trebles. Additionally, the turned in bend results in far fewer fish getting off the hook. They are available in sizes 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 and come in 9 to 12 per pack depending on the hook size.
Ambassador Nigel Skyring upgrades all rear trebles to wide gapes on his cranks and jerkbaits. On his surface lures he upgrades the forward treble and runs Atomic Trick Bitz Assist hooks on the rear. ‘Whether it be tournaments or general fishing you don’t want to be dropping fish. Using the wide gapes your hook-up rates are increased and pulled hooks are a rarity. Trout especially are notorious for throwing hooks, try the wide gapes and watch your captures increase’.
Try size 12 for Bream and Trout lures, and size 10 or 8 for your Bass.
