Best rear hook for my deep cranks

About Me:
Advanced
I started using these hooks for my deep crank baits about four years ago and they have now become a must. They are super strong yet surprisingly very snag free. Once a fish is hooked, he stays hooked. I replace the rear hook on all my deep cranks straight out of the package with the VMC Sureset hooks. I originally bought these at Bass Pro but now buy them at FishUsa.com because they are so much cheaper.. Try them.. You will like them. Good Luck!

Pros: Very Strong Sharp, Fish stay hooked, Good hook set, Best hooks for deep crankbaits

Cons: None

Best Uses: none

Awesome hooks!

Jenkins Township, Pennsylvania

About Me:
I use these on the majority of my crankbaits and especially my topwaters. The design is revolutionary in that when properly installed the hook is much closer to the body of the lure allowing it to be more snag resistant, yet it doesn't decrease the hook ups with fish. I can not recommend these hooks enough. They are extremely sharp and retain that sharpness as well as any other high quality hook. Only option that I wish they would offer is a short shank option. Aside from that I can not find a fault with these hooks at all.

Pros: Great Design, high quality, Very sharp

Cons: wish they were available in a short shank

Southern Arizona

About Me:
When fishing for largemouth bass, I usually replace the treble tail hooks on my crankbaits with VMC Sureset 1x Strong Treble Hooks. Since I fish very weedy waters, upsizing the hooks causes too many snags, so I go with the same size treble to make ripping easier. The number of bass I catch on the in-line, extra large, stinger type hook justifies the trouble and expense.

Pros: Very sharp, Durable, Red Color

Cons: None

About Me:
The name says it all. The minnow hangs more naturally from the extended barb and you'll miss less fish - the extension greatly enhances the likelihood of setting the hook on anything that grabs onto it.

About Me:
These hooks do work as advertised and do not seem to tangle any worse in your net than a regular treble hook. They seem to be a slightly finer wire than others but do hold up other than fish over 10 lbs seem to tear them up a bit. I would recommend these to anyone who likes to walleye fish and troll. Work great in these applications and do not seem to affect lure action. Great hooks but are a little pricey. Hope it helps.

Pros: great concept, Up the catch rate

Cons: will bend on larger fish, None

Great Lakes, Detroit, MI

About Me:
These are the best hooks I've ever used. I have never missed a fish. Once the fish bite, these hooks bite!! Even when fish try to shake them off they only manage to get the other set hooked into themselves. I recently caught a large pike on a medium sized crankbait that had #6 Sure-Set's and although it bent the off-sized hook, it did not break nor did I loose the fish, I simply straightened out the hook and kept on fishing. True story! I have them on every lure I own and will be putting them on any others I intend to buy. Great product.

Pros: Eliminates missed strikes, Fish stay hooked, Extremely Sharp, Suprisingly Strong, Best hooks for crankbaits

Cons: None, Just be very careful when lipping fish, they catch humans too!

Best Uses: More short striking fish

About Me:

I first became aware of this hook design when I purchased several of the Rapala "Dives to Series" of lures which have this hook as standard on the trailer.  The "Hit to Hook" rate is VERY good!  It took me quite a bit of seaching to find the VMC Sure Set hooks and that is when I found FishUSA.  I am replacing the trailer hooks on many of my other lures with this design (large spread hook pointed up).  Please note:  These hooks are extremely sharp and I recommend a "Split Ring" pliers such as the Xuron 496 to spread the split ring apart to remove the old hook and install the new.   I will be purchasing more items from you in the future and am especially looking forward to the new Rapala "Scatter Rap" series of lures.  I keep checking to see when they will become available.  Your shipping was very reasonable also.  I will look here first for any future tackle purchases.

Lexington, KY

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I replace the factory hooks on all of my trolling baits with these. They increase hit-to-hook ratio, and holding power of the cranks. On days when the crappie, or walleye are hitting a little short on the troll these hooks are the difference between fish in the live well, and boat ride. I pull cranks on six rods and when hooking up on 2-4 at a time these hooks usually hold the fish long enough for me to land every hookup.

Pros: Easy To Handle, Irresistible to Fish, Good For Variety Of Fish, Strong, Easy To Store

Cons: none

Best Uses: Fresh Water, Deep Water, Trolling

I also add feathers in verious colors with crystalflash to accent the lures apperance in the water. They are popular additions to lures in my area. I don't recommend using them around shore line stumps or hang ups, THEY WILL GET HUNG UP ON STRUCTURE. Great open water hook.
