Let me start out by saying I am 15 years old and live in Missouri. I recently fished the Jr. State Championship and won on TroKar hooks here is my story.
We woke up at 330 and left the house by five and started making our trip towards lake of the Ozarks, I knew fishing had been tough the past couple of weeks so I was hoping for a good morning bite or an all day topwater bite. By the time we got to the lake it was around seven o’clock the first thing I did when we got to our first spot was breaking out a spook, and cast after cast fish were hitting out of the water but never getting hooked, I switched topwaters and colors and same thing so I decided to take the hooks off all together just so no fish gets accidentally hooked. After our day on the water we drove around Osage Beach looking for a store with hook sharpeners and not one store had one. But that night I dug down deep in the boat and saw my uncle had tons of TroKar hooks I got him interested in TroKar. I guess it worked, anyway he had one package of the TroKar tk300 round bend treble hook ,and with me strictly using trokar i knew how sharp the hooks were so I put them on that spook and I gained a little more confidence in the championship.
That next morning was a picture perfect fall day….and I was in the zone. I knew the other guys were gonna have a tough day. We got on the water and drove up to the first spot and right away I knew what I was gonna do and right away I picked up that spook and started throwing at the docks in about 15-18ft of water and not 15 casts and a fish hit and missed spook but I let it sit and the fish came back again and I hooked up with her right away, it was a decent keeper and I put that fish behind me and looked for the next one. Not long after that fish I caught one more and after that not even a sniff. All through out the day I thought two keepers wouldn’t do it. I put the boat in the trailer and I heard everyone else only caught one fish. I look back to it now and think that TroKar really helped me Ive never seen a hook so sharp it was unbelievable how easily the fish get hook in there mouths.
