I’ve gotten to where I really like an O’Shaughnessy-style hook, which is what I’d say this spinnerbait has. At first glance, it just kind of looks like a round-bend hook. But the hook isn’t really a true round bend, where it would kind of loop out in a near perfect semicircle.

Instead, the hook shaft comes down into the bend and gradually makes its way around only to sharply turn back up to for the point. I don’t really know the science of why this works better, but it does seem to work better for me. I have a few jigs and other baits with this style hook on them now that I really like and it seems to me that I lose fewer fish on them.
