From VMC’s wide range of sportfishing hooks, Fishonmag.com highlights 7 sport hooks that are suitable for South East Asian lure fishing applications.

VMC 7554 2X Inline Treble

VMC 7554 Inline TrebleThe VMC 7554 inline treble is built with VMC’s latest Needle Sharp™ premium point which is ground with a unique, point-grinding process and chemically sharpened into an extremely sharp point for superb penetration. The eye of this inline treble has been rotated to be inline with one branch, allowing the hard bait to rest in-between the two other branches. This alignment allows the lure to swim more freely, enabling a livelier presentation even in higher speeds. With less exposed hook points, the chances of snagging up is also reduced. Made from hi carbon steel wire, this inline treble is rated 2X-strong and forged for extra strength. Available in tin finish, the VMC 7554 is available in a blister pack of 8 pieces for sizes 12, 10, 8 and 6 pieces for sizes 6, 4 and 2.

VMC 7556 Spark Point® 3X Treble

VMC 7556 Spark Point 3X TrebleVMC’s Spark Point® is another premium hook point developed by VMC for ultimate performance hooks. The hook point is hardened by forming, then chemically sharpened for permanent hook sharpness. Front and back reinforcement ribs guarantee the point’s rigidity while energy channels increase the speed of penetration and optimise the point’s driving force upon striking. These trebles have been proven on the hard mouths of species such as GT, Arowana and even Sailfish.

Like the 7554, the VMC 7556 is also an inline treble, with the eye rotated to be inline with one branch and allowing the hard bait to rest in-between the two other branches. This alignment allows the lure to swim more freely, enabling a livelier presentation even in higher speeds. With less exposed hook points, the chances of snagging up is also reduced. Made from hi carbon steel wire, this inline treble is rated 3X-strong and forged for extra strength. Additionally, the shank of this treble is shorter, enabling a more compact profile. Available in tin finish, the VMC 7556 is available in a blister pack of 8 pieces for sizes 6, 4 and 6 pieces for sizes 2, 1 and 1/0.

VMC 7237 Light Inline Single

VMC 7237 Light Inline SingleUsed in place of treble hooks, the VMC 7237 inline single features VMC’s latest Needle Sharp™ premium point which is ground with a unique, point-grinding process and chemically sharpened into an extremely sharp point for superb penetration. Built with hi carbon steel wire, a large eye for greater freedom of movement and extra wide gap for easier hook up, the VMC7237 is ideal for both freshwater and saltwater applications. Available in tin finish, sizes 6, 4 come in a pack of 8 pieces, sizes 2, 1 in pack of 6 pieces and size 1/0 in pack of 4 pieces.

VMC 7266 Inline Single Hook

VMC 7266 Inline SingleRigging stickbaits, casting lures and saltwater trolling lures with inline singles are becoming more popular and for good reason too; greater hook purchase due to a larger hook gap, better lure action, less leverage on tackle exerted from the fish while fighting and easier facilitation of catch and release. VMC 7266 inline singles are ideal treble replacements for bigger game. Like the 7237, the 7266 features VMC’s latest Needle Sharp™ premium point for superb penetration. Built with forged hi carbon steel wire for strength, a large eye for greater freedom of movement and extra wide gap for easier hook up, the VMC7266 is ideal for both freshwater and saltwater applications. Available in tin finish, sizes 1/0, 2/0 and 3/0 come in a pack of 4 pieces while size 5/0 comes in a pack of 3 pieces.

VMC 7310 Super Light Worm Hook

VMC 7310 Super Light Worm HookThis super light worm hook is made of VMC’s Vanadium® Steel, a very light material yet boasts 25% increased strength from regular high carbon steel for the same wire diameter. Vanadium is much lighter than regular high carbon steel and is a great advantage for finesse presentations requiring instant penetration as you can get away with a thinner wire diameter without compromising on resistance. The 7310 features an extra-wide gap, ultra-sharp Spark Point®, Z-lock bend to securely hold small soft plastics and forged for extra strength. Available in black nickel finish, sizes 1/0, 2/0, 3/0 in a pack of 5 pieces.
