Re: Keeper Hooks


I used to use keepers quite often when fishing from the shore in the sounds.Running rig with free sliding keeper.Generally 5/0 main hook with 2/0 keeper.A keeper pays off when theres a few pannie snapper about and it is usually the hook that does the damage.Rather than using keepers I now just use the trace line and loop a half hitch over the top of the bait and I reckon that presents the bait a little better.
