The impact of hook tip and hook mouth on fishing

The hook mouth refers to the section from below the hook tip to below the barb.

The orientation of the tip of the hook is inward, and most of it is on the same axis as the mouth of the hook. The fish is not easy to escape with the tip of the hook, but it will increase the difficulty of getting the fish.

The orientation of the hook mouth has three types: inward, outward, and left-right. There are few hooks whose mouth and handle are completely parallel, and their performance is between the above three, and the fishing range is very wide, but the performance is not outstanding.

The hook with the mouth tilted inwardly makes it difficult for the fish to hook, and it is not easy to get off the hook after being hooked, and the fish hanging part is relatively outside. Most of the hook mouth of this kind of hook is short, and the forward bending angle is designed to be small to facilitate the fish to swallow. If the hook door is narrow, this kind of hook is especially suitable for small fish with high vigilance, such as white fox hook. If the hook door is wider, the part where the fish hangs will be deeper inside, which is suitable for fishing larger fish, such as Haijin-shaped hooks.

The mouth of the crooked mouth hook is inclined to the left or right, and is not on the same plane as the handle and the bottom of the hook. This feature makes it easy for the hook to catch the fish, and at the same time, it can also avoid the dead corners of non-slanted mouth hooks. The length of the hook mouth of the crooked mouth hook is different, and there will be different characteristics: the mouth of the hook is short, and it is easier to be swallowed by fish; the hook mouth is longer, which increases the difficulty of feeding, but also reduces the possibility of decoupling. This type of hook is suitable for fishing big fish, hangs firmly, and is not easy to run away, such as a thousand-shaped hook.

A hook with an outwardly inclined hook also has the advantage of being easy to catch the fish and not easy to slip out of the mouth, but the bones are deeper and inward, and the fish will die quickly after being caught. The hook shape is represented by Akita sleeves, the crane mouth shape and the Lujiang shape made in the past.
