There’s nothing worse than getting to your fishing spot, or offshore, and realizing your tackle box is lacking diversity. Luckily, with the creative fisherman in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the essential hooks you need to keep your tackle box adaptable. Keep in mind sizes will vary based on style of fishing.
- Small J-hooks for inshore and freshwater species. When targeting peacock bass, largemouth bass or even juvenile snook and tarpon, having smaller j-hooks is essential. Whether you want to use these to throw live bait, tie flies, or stick on a Gulp Shrimp for Snook, these versatile little hooks definitely come in handy in the tackle box. Their thin presentation helps when targeting the more finicky fish. Larger j-hooks can come in handy when trolling ballyhoo or bonito strips offshore.
- Vertical jigs become handy when needing to change the pace offshore. These are great additions to slow pitch jigs and freestyle vertical jigs. These will come in handy when targeting Tuna, Amberjack, and African Pompano.
- Weighted Twistlock Hooks are ideal for adding your soft plastics to. The popular Owner Hook version comes in multiple sizes and you can add a variety of different style of soft plastics to these to cover multiple styles of fishing from bass fishing to snook.
- Circle Hooks become handy when live baiting with beginner anglers. Eliminating the need for a hookset motion and being versatile enough for a pitch bait, having multiple sizes of circle hooks will come in handy in your tackle box.
- Jig Heads such as trout eyes or even just simple shrimp jigs are great for adding extra weight to shrimp, cut bait, and soft plastics.
