Owner began the "designer hook" business by coming up with a far
superior product that combines all the critical features needed by serious anglers. The
hooks I carry are all forged (for better strength, and less chance of breaking off), are
corrosion resistant, have a low visibility black chrome finish, Cutting Point design, and
are super, super sharp. These hooks last longer than your basic bronze colored hook. I've
used some for several seasons, and they still catch and hold onto fish, and are as good
looking as the day I got them. That's hard to believe, but very true, as you will find out
yourself when you buy a few packs and fish these great hooks. While they are
expensive, they also last. These are not a one time use hook. They're laser
sharp and ready for immediate use upon opening the pack.
I wrote the above way back in
1998 or 2000...not quite sure but trust it's been a long time. Since
that time Owner has continued producing great hooks. But, so too have
others. Eagle Claw's Trokar hooks are exceptional products, made
here in USA. Mustad has also come to the premium hook party with
their 4X circles and many other offerings. As fishermen and consumers,
you have several very good options these days in addition to Owner's
fine hooks. - Mark
hooks are the latest in high technology hook design developed
by the Owner Hook Company of Japan. Unique to each OWNER CUTTING POINT™
hook is the triple-edged cutting blade led by a needle-sharp point that
never needs sharpening. The point grabs quickly, and as it begins to
penetrate, the three cutting edges slice their way through the toughest
scales, cartilage and even jawbones for a positive, effortless hook set.
unique triple-edged CUTTING POINT™ are engineered for better
penetration. Conventional hooks are typically stamped to a pyramid point
or ground to a pencil-type point, and by their design, encounter more
friction and resistance the deeper they penetrate. With the CUTTING
POINTS™ triple-edged blade, the amount of resistance actually
decreases as the hook penetrates. Prove it to yourself by pulling the CUTTING
POINT™ through a matchbook cover. The CUTTING POINT™ grabs
and slices quick and clean right through the material!
a point that cuts and slices so easily, isn't there a concern that the
hook might actually cut its way out of cartilage and tissue? On the
contrary. Because of a flat inside design, the CUTTING POINT'S™
is actually less likely to cut out than is the conventional round point
design. And in response to those who have wondered whether CUTTING
POINT'S™ might tear a bigger hole in tissue - thus enabling a
jumping or twisting fish to more easily escape - fact is, no hook, CUTTING
POINT ™ or otherwise, will create a "hole" that's any
larger than the diameter of the hook's shank.
OWNER CUTTING POINT™ hooks are super sharp out of the package and
do not need to be sharpened. Attempts to sharpen after purchase removes
the finish and may weaken the tempering process, leading to rapid
corrosion and soft points.
Owner makes a wide variety of hooks, but for serious offshore use there are
only a few that really concern us. The Mutu circle hook, Gorilla and Flyliners are
the standards. Recently Owner introduced a Light Mutu circle hook, which is
excellent for a attempting a more natural presentation or with weakened baits.
GORILLA Saltwater Live Bait Hooks Features
heavy duty XX strong forged shank. Cutting Point, corrosion resistant black chrome finish.
Ideal for rigging mackerel, squid and other large baits.
FLYLINER Saltwater Live Bait Hooks Forged
for superior strength, light weight for a more natural bait presentation. Cutting Point,
short shank and corrosion resistant black chrome finish. Ideal for rigging live baits,
allowing the bait to swim naturally. Like their name indicates - these hooks are for
MUTU Circle Hooks - Circle hooks are gaining a great deal of popularity in a few
different applications. The first area of renewed interest were the guys going for deep
water rockfish. The hooks held onto prey far better, less fish came unbuttoned. Then the
guys on the long range boats started using these products for tuna, big tuna.
Surprisingly, the fish seemed to always hook themselves right in the corner of the jaw.
The hooksets were better, fish didn't come unbuttoned. Then the folks who specialize in
catch and release got into the act. The benefit for this application lies again in the
hookset. Always the fish seems to hook itself right in the corner of the mouth so there's
little damage to the fish once released. You don't have to pop the hook to set it. Let the
fish run away, then tighten the drag allow the run to set the hook. Try 'em, you'll like
MUTU Light Circle
Circle hooks are a proven commodity at this point, and no one makes better one's
than Owner. They have recently come up with another great variant, a lighter weight
version of their excellent circle hook. The lighter hooks are just the ticket for flylining lighter, smaller baits. They are a much better choice for use with anchovies.
Still strong, sharp, and corrosion resistant to the max.
added more ring hooks to their line with the standard Mutu,
Gorilla and Flyliner
hooks. These specialty hooks fill the bill for bait and chunk
fishermen. They feature Owner's superior hook design and
durability, just as you'd expect. The picture shows off the four styles
of Owner Circle hook now on the market. From left to right: Super
Mutu, Standard Mutu, Gorilla, and Flyliner. The number to the right of
the pricing below indicates the quantity in the pack. They're great
hooks, very effective.
The Aki is a relatively long shanked hook, much favored
locally for white seabass. The longer shank makes it easier to pin
on a squid. Like all Owner's the finish is perfection, and the hook
sharp and strong. The Aki works well with live bait, lighter
trolling, and some may even use it for fly hooks. Black Chrome
Owner Super Mutu Ringed Hooks
hit another home run with their new ringed Super Mutu circle
hooks. They're just what the larger tuna want hooked to
their bait. The ring allows the bait to move more freely,
pays dividends on cut bait, too. Owner now makes the ring
versions of their Mutu, Gorilla and Flyliner hooks. Their
best hooks, the Super Mutu's were the first to get rings, and
they're still certainly the finest big game hooks on the market.
OWNER DANCING STINGERS
have discovered a very effective enhancement for
fishing iron or for use with knife jigs, an
"assist" hook. Owner offers these hooks in several
styles, including wire rigged.
Owner has recently introduced a superior
split ring, their Hyper Wire Rings. These are made from the
highest quality stainless steel, they're forged for extra strength,
and they've got a very strong recoil. We're stocking them in
five popular sizes, perfect for replacing hooks on jigs as well as
many other applications.

Owner also has some very
nice solid rings. They are a high quality
stainless steel product available in several
sizes. They are not a round as the Burns rings we
sell, they're a little bit flattened on the sides,
but they're stainless and virtually unbreakable
with a seamless design.
Another very useful hook design
from Owner, one that many of our surf anglers prefer is the small
mosquito hook. For guys fishing BassTrix lures and Berkely Gulp lures
(especially the worms) in the surf, using a dropshot rig and the small
Octopus hooks is the rig of choice. We offer Owner's Mosquito hooks in
four sizes in both the black chrome and bleeding red finish. They're a
very fine wire with a needle point. The hooks are packed 10/bag size #6,
9/bag in size #4 and 2, and 8/bag in size 1
STINGER 4X Treble
makes some excellent hooks, now there's a treble design that offers Owner's
excellent strength, sharpness and durability. Use them for all applications where a treble
is required, and an even better idea is to use them as the replacement for all your old
tired jigs! Yep, now you can update that favorite jig of yours, and make it better than
new. Just substitute one of Owner's excellent new trebles. Hooks are
offered 6/pack for all sizes with the exception of the 4/0 and 5/0
sizes which come 5/pack.
for 2018, Owner introduced inline hooks for
lure replacement similar to VMC and
EagleClaw Trokar designs. These are heavy
gauge wire hooks available in three sizes to
cover most needs.
