Tackle Test: Mustad Hoodlum 9/0 Triangle wire

All in all, these hooks did not disappoint and are right up there in the premium hook categories.

I had the privilege of testing some of Mustad’s new Triangle wire hooks Supplied by WET Sports in the 2020 Gordon’s Bay Offshore Classic and I didn’t even have to go further than 1 Hook!! The hook lasted for 3 days of tuna fishing and I landed 7 out of 7 Yellowfin Tuna on that same hook all ranging from 45kg to about 75kg and every single fish was hooked properly. After the comp, I managed a couple of Longfin tuna in the 8 -15kg range on it and it suits that job perfectly as well.

These hooks are perfect because:

  • These hooks have hardly any flex/bend under high tension
  • They did not rust/corrode in more than a week’s rugged fishing
  • Hook tip remained as sharp as I got it out of the packet
  • Perfect for snelling as they are welded and smoothed in the eye which helps to not pinch the line and ending up in tears.

All in all, these hooks did not disappoint and are right up there in the premium hook categories.
