  1. Show your best/worst terminal failure. Let's see how that one big fish owned you and what it left you with. Provide a short story and if possible a picture included. Will also be interesting to see what brands fail more than others. Ex: hooks, split rings, swivels. Here's mine. This is a mustad 34185 8/0 jig hook bent out by a very big fish. Fish ate it me at my feet (thought I was stuck in rocks). Gave two sharp rod snaps and it took off with no turning back. Tried to set the hook couple more times and it ran faster, even with a tight drag. It rounded the bolder point I was on and spit the jig before I could catch up with it. left me with a bentout hook and seaweed on my leader for extra insult.
  2. New to surf fishing and a little confused on what hooks to use. what is everyone using and why?
  3. Hook sizing has come up in a number of threads, including: ...and others, I'm certain. I found a guide that's published by VMC, which is called "VMC Hook Replacement Guide" It includes factory specs for lures from 23 lure mfrs. I've attached a .pdf of the file. Moderators, if attaching this isn't within the rules, please LMK, or just delete the attachment. If you search for this term, you will see that it is NLA on the VMC site, but other sites, including Alan Tani, have it available. HTH VMC HOOK REPLACEMENT GUIDE(1).pdf
  4. Hi all Been given a couple of packs of Partidge Sea streamers CS11/3 hooks. Never used them before . Bizarre looking hook .Any of you guys tried them?Does the reversed barb cause any issues? Heres a pic from the internet. Jim
  5. Is it just me or less than 10% of people use barbless hooks? Theoretically, barbless hooks allows better hookset, less injury to fish and much quicker unhook for release. Yes, I use mainly barbless hooks on all my lures.

  14. I'll soon be replacing a LOT of hooks on plugs, tins, swimmers, etc. with VMC trebles, some Siwash style singles and some in-line style singles. I know that I can bend in the barbs with pliers or grips, then file them smooth, but I'd sure prefer to just buy them either barbless or w/micro-barbs. Very common in the flyfishing world. Not so common in surfcasters' world it appears. I did a search here and as of the most recent result from 8/2015, it was still "no dice". Does anyone have any more recent info? TIA for your help, as always.
