The Mustad Classic O`Shaughnessy hook features a needle eye perfect for fishing a Ballyhoo with a rig pin rig. The 2X extra heavy wire hook is perfect and strong enough for targeting Marlin or Tuna. Using the hook with the highly productive, but somewhat forgotten cedar plugs is another great way to rig this short-shanked hook. To improve the hookup rate on your cedar plug lure, place a plastic tube above the hook, to prevent the hook from going too far into the cedar plug. This will reduce the leverage effect and produce more fish in the cooler. The “MTL-V1” point combines a more efficient point design with a new sharpening process to enhance the quality. The result is a sharper, sleek new point shape with penetration resistance 50% lower than standard Classic Hook points! Mustad’s Wire Technology and Nor-Tempering Process means that hooks are lighter and up to 30% stronger. Duratin finish for maximum corrosion resistance.
