Gamakatsu SL12S Short Hook Review

Gamakatsu SL12S Short Hook Review

We’ve been loving the Gamakatsu SL12S Short hook since its recent debut. With its short shank, and with everything else the same as the popular SL12S (except the dark finish), the Short’s potential as a tarpon hook was obvious. Then the feedback we received on hookup ratio and fish retention really drove the point home, pun intended.

Eat Me S12S Short Review
After a day of dolphin fishing with Eat Me's tied on the SL12S Short we decided to tie all #4 Eat Me's on this hook from now on.

So if you’re looking for a short shank hook with a wide gap, incredible staying power, and the strength to hold up to hook-breakers like tarpon without the weight of a heavier hook – check out the SL12S Short here.
