Big Game - the Heavy Weight

Mustad Big Game hooks have established a formidable reputation among the world’s big game anglers for sharpness, strength and reliability. This has made them the world’s best selling game hook for more than a century and they hold more world records than any other big game hook.

And in the famous game fishing grounds of Australia and New Zealand, Mustad Big Game hooks have become the automatic choice for serious game fishermen:

  • Southern and Tuna patterns (7691DT and 7691S) for lure and bait trolling for marlin and tuna.
  • Sea Master 7699D for sharks and live baiting for other heavy game fish.
  • Stainless 7732 for lure trolling.
  • The famous Mustad Super Marlin, the hand-crafted, strength rated masterpiece in heavy game hooks, now available in Australia and New Zealand
  • The new Mustad Ultra Point Big Game Live Bait hook, now available in New Zealand
  • The 76LGS (light game stainless), a special stainless Southern and Tuna pattern in lighter gauge for lure trolling. MB test-rated.
Stainless Steel hooks available in electro-polished steel (AISI 420)


It’s not difficult to make a hook point that is sharp at the tip. All you need is a basic needle point – like you find on most ‘chemically sharpened’ hooks. The real challenge is to make a needle point that won’t curl over or snap off under pressure.

That’s what Mustad has achieved with ULTRA POINT.

ULTRA POINT makes chemically sharpened needle point hooks stronger and more durable. They are less likely to curl over or break under pressure.

In 2004, all Mustad Premium hooks in Australia and New Zealand became equipped with ULTRA POINT.

ULTRA POINT – only from Mustad.

About Ultrapoint

Sharpness:

  • Extremely sharp
  • Quick and easy penetration
  • Small entry holes

Benefits of traditional
needle point
Drawbacks of traditional needle point:

  • In order to sharpen the point, metal is removed in the grinding process — this makes the needle point very sharp, but also weaker.
  • Such points will occasionally bend or roll over.

Sharpness, Strength and Durability
Mustad has now developed a new hook concept that combines the benefits of the needle point — quick and easy penetration and ultra sharpness– with demands for strength and durability.

  • Our new three-step grinding method makes it possible to remove less metal from the point without compromising sharpness.
  • Mustad now offers hooks featuring sticky sharp, true needle points that are stronger and more durable for easy penetration and longer performance.


Samples taken from our regular production line.


Awesome Strength
The incredible strength is also achieved through our innovative three-stage, computer controlled tempering process — Nor-Tempering. This advanced heat treatment transforms the hook into a fine grained, ultra-strong micro structure, increasing the strength up to 30% compared to conventional tempering methods.

No other premium fish hook offers both the sharpness and incredible strength of new Mustad It’s truly a revolutionary way to increase your hook sets and prolong the life of your hooks. That means more casts, more sets, and less time in your tackle box. All from the world leader in fish hooks.


After all, sharpness is our strong point.

BUTT, ANAL OR TAIL HOOKING

HOOK JUST BEHIND VENT AND JUST INSIDE ANAL FIN. HELPS YOUR BAIT SWIM DOWNWARD AND AWAY FROM THE BOAT QUICKLY. SINCE THE HOOK IS EMBEDDED IN SOFT TISSUE, A LIGHT LOB OR UNDERHAND CAST WORKS BEST TO KEEP THE BAIT ON THE HOOK.

HOOKS RIGGED WITH ACTION
RINGS ALLOW LIVE BAIT, SUCH
AS SARDINES, ANCHOVIES AND
MACKEREL, TO SWIM MORE
NATURALLY THAN ON A FIXED
HOOK. THIS DRAWS MORE
STRIKES ON A SLOW BITE AND
HELPS YOU BOAT MORE FISH.

Butt

COLLAR HOOKING

PREFERRED METHOD FOR ANCHOVIES AND ALSO USED FOR SMALL SARDINES. BAIT IS HOOKED THROUGH THE COLLARBONE IMMEDIATELY BEHIND THE GILL PLATES. THIS METHOD HELPS TO KEEP SMALL BAITS LIVELY AND SWIMMING JUST UNDER THE SURFACE.

BACK OR NECK HOOKING

FOR LARGER BAITS LIKE SARDINES AND MACKEREL, HOOK CROSSWISE BEHIND THE HEAD. THE BAIT STAYS LIVELY AND THE HOOK STAYS SECURE FOR CASTING. THEN THE EXPOSED POINT DOESN’T FOUL IN THE BAIT, WHICH RESULTS IN INCREASED HOOKUPS. SOME ANGLERS PREFER TO MOVE THE HOOK REARWARD AND HOOK THE BAIT UNDER THE DORSAL FIN TO PROVIDE A BETTER ANCHOR POINT.

back

NOSE HOOKING

HOOK BAIT EITHER CROSSWISE THROUGH THE NOSE OR UP THROUGH BOTH LIPS. HARDER TISSUE IN THE NOSE MEANS YOUR BAIT IS LESS LIKELY TO COME OFF DURING CASTING. ALSO ALLOWS SWIMMING THE BAIT BACK TO THE BOAT.

HEART OR CHEST HOOKING

HOOK SHALLOW, CROSSWISE THROUGH THE BREASTBONE OR UNDER PECTORAL FINS. DON’T HOOK TOO DEEP. POPULAR WHEN FISHING LARGER LIVE BAITS, LIKE BROWNBAITS, NEAR OR ON THE BOTTOM WITH A SINKER.

The World’s Only Proportionally Correct Circle Hook Range
Demon Circle Working closely with fisheries experts, charter and long range captains, Mustad® hook designers set out to create a new circle hook range that combines Mustad’s legendary strength with important new features to enhance performance. The new Demon® Perfect Circle Hooks are the only circle hooks with Precision Proportions™. This revolutionary design aspect means the point angle and length, gap, front length and all other parameters have the same proportions across the entire size range for maximum effectiveness. The range also boasts a new modified point design with a 96º angle which is optimum for insuring a high percentage of lip and jaw hooking.

ENDORSED BY THE BILLFISH FOUNDATION

  • During the course of hook design development, representatives of The Billfish Foundation were kept apprised of hook design goals, testing and development progress. Upon review of the final design, the organization has endorsed the new in-line Demon Perfect Circle Hooks because they are conservation compatible. The Billfish Foundation (TBF) is the only non-profit organization dedicated solely to conserving and enhancing billfish populations around the world. TBF’s comprehensive network of members and supporters includes anglers, captains, mates, tournament directors, clubs and sportfishing businesses.  By coordinating efforts and speaking with one voice, we are able to work for solutions that are good for billfish and not punitive to recreational anglers.
