Mustad EZ Baiter Hooks
Often called Power Baiter hooks they are designed for use with an electrically powered machine used on commercial longline vessels that can bait up to three hooks per second. Baitfish are fed into one end and the machine cuts them to a pre-set size, baits the hook, and then sets the hook and line over the side of the boat.
They are electroplated with tin using Mustad’s Duratin process for long life in saltwater. Available in 10/0, 11/0, 12/0, 13/0, 14/0 sizes.
Mustad EZ Baiter hooks also work very well when used by recreational anglers fishing for most bottom species like groper, bass, ling, trumpeter, cod, shark and so on.
Recreational anglers must tie the trace correctly to the hook so the line always exits the eye on the barb side. Otherwise, the hook will not self-set properly in the fish’s mouth. These hooks are self-setting and almost always hook the fish in the corner of the mouth as it attempts to swim away with the bait. You can also use a tube knot with these hooks
You can get Mustad EZ Baiter circle hooks from leading fishing tackle retailers. Excellent for use with any type of deep sea fishing where you are not likely to feel the first tug at your bait by a fish far beneath the boat.
