In the summer of 2008 we started on a quest to find or build the best jig head on the market for inshore saltwater fishing. After a year of trial and error, we came up with the “Knotty Hooker” brand. Our goal was simple, always use the highest quality materials and make sure the product was made in the USA. With these goals in mind, there was no question for the hook choice. Gamakatsu® is the leading fish hook manufacturer in the world. Material and technology are what makes these hooks far superior to all other brands. Our unique jig head design has symmetrical conical cylinders that really hold soft plastics on the hook. The stand-up head also features large eyes and research has shown that a visible eye is a critical determining factor in the fish’s decision whether or not to strike.
