    has any one had luck with red worm hooks and changing jerk bait and crank bait trebles with red trebles hooks

    I use red hooks for crappie jigs, worms and have replace some of my hard baits with red trebles. I havent seen an increase in catch with these rigs, but it dosent hurt to try so I add 1 red treble to the front of most of my hard baits and many come with red feathrs tied on the rear treble. On a different note, while wade fishing for reds and trout with sliver or gold spoons, I see an increase in catch with spoons with red tabs or red tube addedto the trebles.

      I have used red hooks before, they do not increase the catch rate. I remember reading a study about a year ago on how it does not have an affect on the fish, all it really is helping to catch is fisherman purchasing them.

        I'm with Cgull. I haven't seen any benefit from red hooks but I have had a great deal of success with the silver Mepps Aglia with the red rings on the body and it also has a red tube that covers the hook shank.

          I gotta agree with what's been said, I've never seen a difference between red hooks and regular hooks...

            I also agree with those above having BassFished for 30 years I can tell you I tried the RedHook deal more than once and the only fish it catches is us fishermen. And the red color comes off just stick with what the bait comes with, you'll be fine. Bait color doesn't hold alot of water either, if your catching fish on a green pumkin yum dinger and you run out they will still bite the same shape worm in a close color shade or combo.

                I agree, red trebles don't hurt any but I also haven't seen to much of an increase of fish caught either. However, Kevin Vandam always talks about the bleeding bait spinnerbait and other bleeding baits and he really believes they work better so maybe.
