Presenting a prawn-like shape this is a great hook to use for whole unpeeled prawns. Start the hook under the prawn tail, follow the bend of the prawn with the hook point protruding from just under the prawn’s head. Dynamite! This hook is superb as a live-baiting hook for tail-hooked live prawns, or in bigger sizes as a cut bait hook for barra and snapper with fish always being lip-hooked on capture.
The size 6 is perfect for whiting in Melbourne in both shallow and deep water.
