"I've never been overly excited about fishing hooks, I just wanted a
strong sharp hook. Then I had the chance to use Zoneloc hooks while
doing some promotional work for Pradco. I fished a private lake and
caught about 160 bass up to five pounds using Zoneloc hooks. It became
apparent rather quickly we were on to something. I don't think I've ever
had to use my pliers so much to remove a hook before. They really stuck
the fish and helped retain them. I was sold."
"Something as basic as the hook is so important to your success. Sure, a lot of hooks are sharp and strong, but with the new bend, I believe you'll retain a higher percentage of the fish you hook. For me as a professional angler, that is the difference between a poor season and a decent one or a good season and winning AOY (Angler of the Year). I can't wait to use them on the Bassmaster Elite Series and at the Bassmaster Classic."
