Bleeding Bait Triggers the Natural Feeding Response

It's a fact that captains and guides have known for years, the blood-red color triggers the natural feeding response in fish! There have been so many fishing stories and testimonials, we will be building a new page with more about Bleeding Bait soon. You'll find many Daiichi hooks are available in this earth-friendly finish under our "Products" link. From bass to redfish, Bleeding Bait works!

Until recently Daiichi made only small hooks. Can you see this example?
In fact when first asked to make larger hook patterns, the technicians at Daiichi looked "perplexed." They could not believe what an easy task they were being asked to perform. As a direct result of the Daiichi team's small hook expertise, consistently perfect hooks are now yours!

The Point

Here are some photographs of "brand name" hook points taken by an electron microscope.Things get ugly at 350 power - but Daiichi remains beautiful!

The Barb
Besides the point, the other factor of sharpness (the ability to penetrate) concerns the barb. The Daiichi hooks have two types of low profile barbs, allowing for faster penetration. Minibarb - the standard Daiichi barb - cuts into 40% of the hooks' wire diameter. Microbarb provides the ultimate combination of sharpness and holding power, cutting into only 20% of the wire.

Carbon Content
Rated at 80, Daiichi hooks hammer competitors in their carbon content. This translates to harder steel and sharper points.

Tempering
Carefully flex the hook gap a little. This combination of strength while maintaining flexibility separates the top quality hooks from the others! Daiichi takes longer to temper their hooks, but as you can feel, it's worth it.

Forging
Did the hook you flexed have flattened edges in the hook bend? That's forging. The forging process adds almost 20% in strength to the wire. If you flexed a forged hook, you probably didn't move it too far. The Daiichi forging adds strength, but keeps your hook as fine as possible for sharpness and livelier bait action.

Guaranteed
Our address is on every package of fish hooks. If you are not 100% satisfied with Daiichi hooks, please return the unused portion for a full refund. We will even add $1 to cover your postage and inconvenience.

We offer hooks for Bluegill to Blue Marlin, Warmouth to Walleye, Shark to Striped Bass. Daiichi has the right hook!

1. Fish are naturally attracted to blood. The sight of red means "injured bait" or "easy meal" to fish.

2. As fish feed the gill plates flare exposing the gills. Because the gills just moved, like any muscle there is more blood in them. This phenomenon is called gill flash, the signal from one fish to another; "I'm eating, you're not!"

3. This combination triggers the natural feeding response in fish. Bleeding Bait is an earth friendly finish that wears during use. In other words, if you break your line during battle, the hook will rust away quickly.
