Broken treble hook of Frostbite Tantrum
« on: Jan 17, 2022, 04:57 PM »
My son got me some Frostbite Tantrums for Christmas. I caught a walleye with one and the tail hook was stuck pretty good. Trying to get the hook out with forceps and all of the hooks broke off on the tail hook. These are some tiny hooks. Disappointed that I only caught one fish and now I need a new hook.

Best thing you can do to most lures is upgrade the hook...
I prefer Gamakatsu

I never know what size hooks to get. Do you buy them in packs?

Just have to look and guesstimate what size, like eagle claws.

Based on your description "tiny hooks" I'd try a size 10 as a starting point

yes, you can buy them by the pack. There are hook size charts online that might get you close to the size you need, if you’re not familiar with sizing hooks by eye.😎
