We just received restocks from Gamakatsu, VMC and OTI.

For the Gamakatsu the 00421-XX 11/0 and 12/0 (10,50) are a great quality hook that alot of guys are fishing for the big bluefin. They can be served (snelled) with #500 kelvar for assist hooks and worked great last season.

In VMC we have the 13/0 Japanese Sickle Style hooks both served and loose.

For the OTI we are stocking the new Raptor Inline (Decoy style) hooks in sizes 6/0, 8/0 and 10/0 - these are proving to be very popular and reasonably priced.


**** Also expecting large qty of RED Gammy in 5/0, 6/0 and 7/0 any day now. These are sold in 50 packs and by the box of 1,000.

Also keep us in mind for

Strike Pro Tuna Hunters
OTI Komodo, Wombats
CM Hammered Jigs - in sizes that work for NC :cool: 320g, 420g, 520g
(go lighter and go sideways with that ripping gulf stream current)
Yo-Zuri, Seaguar, and Varivas leader in stock, factory direct fresh
Owner split rings in BULK! 10/100/1000 bags direct from Japan
Owner ST-76, and ST-66 in stock - best prices!

Not a problem, I don't mind making up hooks for the group. I've been making up both with the #500 Kevlar and then finishing them with leftover epoxy from running bucktails.

Nice work Dan, the wrap method and epoxy looks a lot cleaner then the heat shrink tubing. Can't wait to fish them next month.

Nice job brother, I'll give you some $$ on Sat. We have same group for both days now. I have some bad cabin fever since I have been puppy training instead of catching fish in some far off place. I might take a ride down before March if this bite keeps up.

I agree. ( although I use heat shrink on my hooks. I need that 28hr day :D ). Dan's hooks are done up right! Even the hooks that come on the packaged Diamond Jigs are done this way, which surprised me when I first saw them a couple years ago. It looks alot better!! :thumbsup:

Thanks Tom appreciate it. Guys hooks done this way are not cheap but you don't need alot of hooks. The hook should be threaded through a Figure 8 Jigging ring and attached to your jig with a #9 Owner split ring.

When you change jigs you do so at the split ring, so you are NOT retying during the trip.

The knot is up to the angler, I have been crimping anything over #80 with good results. Just using standard double barrel copper crimps.

Do I have that right, you will be at the Southern Regional Flea Mkt. And will you have signage so I will know which vendor you are?.
Yes I will be there this Saturday, I am not sure of the table numbers and while yes we have signage, its hard to display short of duct taping it to the wall and I'm sure they wouldn't appreciate that :D. I know I am on the left side of the room along the wall.

I will call Bob and ask for our table numbers and report back...

Figure 8 Ring, AG Knot and a pair of HPA Pliers. I never have to re-tie on the water. Since you converted me over to the Figure 8's, life is alot easier. :)

Btw, I need a bulk bag of figure 8 Rings.
