Available double prong hook sizes #1, #2, #4, #6, #8, and #10

 

So you are ready to purchase but don’t know what size Threader Kit to go with? Threader Kits come in sizes #1, #2, #4, #6, #8, and #10. The only difference is the size of the hooks that come in the kit! #1 is the largest size hook and #10 is the smallest size hook. The Threader Tool is the same size in each kit! In the kits you will get 1 Threader Tool, 3 Loose Double Prong Hooks, and 1 Snelled Double Prong Hook in a Pre-Threaded Shad. I repeat, the Threader Tool is the same size in each kit, the only difference is the hook size! =)

The Standard Threader Tool that comes in these kits will work on 1″ crappie minnows all the way up to 9″-10″ bait fish, as well as crawlers, leeches, shrimp, crawfish, etc.

When considering what size hook to go with you want to keep in mind the size of bait you are using as well as the size of the fish you want to catch. If you are using a 1″ crappie minnow to catch a crappie you will not want to go with a size #1 hook because you will tear up the minnow! In that instance you would want to go with the small size #10.

As always, if you have any questions you can email Hook Line & Threader at: Questions@HookLineandThreader.com

How to Create A Live Minnow Fishing Lure

Using our patented Threader Tool;

  1. Enter the mouth of your bait fish
  2. Easily slide the Threader Tool along their straight line intestinal track until it emerges out the rear
  3. Hook the loop of your leader on the Threader Tools precision notch
  4. Pull your leader back though until the loop of your leader emerges out of the mouth
  5. Attached the loop of your leader to a snap swivel and cast with no worries about losing your bait on the cast, or when trolling or on short strikes. The bait fish will stay alive and swimming naturally, attracting that big catch! Once you get your catch the bait fish will swim up the line, allowing you to remove your catch, slide your bait fish back down and use again and again.

Which Threader Tool to Choose?

Hook Line & Threader, Inc. currently offers 2 size Threaders, the Standard, and the Marine-Grade Stainless Steel. The Standard Threader is 5 1/2 inches long and the Stainless Steel Threader is 9 inches long.

The Standard Threader comes in Kit sizes #1, #2, #4, #6, #8, and #10. The only difference is the hook size, the Standard Threader is the same size in each kit. The Marine-Grade Stainless Steel threader is sold by itself.

Remember when Threading your bait you are only going half way thru it, so with this rule of thumb, the standard Threader can be used on bait fish up to 11 inches long, and the Stainless Steel Threader can be used on bait fish up to 18 inches long.

The Standard Threader is primarily used for fresh water fishing, and the Stainless Steel Threader for salt water fishing. However, the two can be used in both fresh and salt water.

Some examples of bait for the Standard Threader: Shiners, Night Crawlers, Shrimp, Crayfish, Leeches, Crappie Minnows, Bluegill, Goldfish, etc.

Some examples of bait for the Marine-Grade Stainless Steel Threader: Ballyhoo, Mullet, Pilchard, Squid, Pinfish, Herring, Goggle-eye, Pogies, etc.

And, of course, both the Standard and Stainless Steel Threaders can be used to create custom soft plastic rigs and harnesses.

How-to RIG LIVE BAIT

  • Holding the bait upside down, carefully insert the Threader into the mouth of the live bait. Slide the Threader through the body, making sure to follow the digestive tract of the bait. Continue feeding the Threader through the body until the hook of the Threader emerges through the anal opening (Figure 1).
  • Attach the loop of the pre-tied leader to the Threader hook (Figure 2).
  • Pull the Threader back through the body of the bait until the shank of the hook is set inside the body of the bait (Figure 3), and the leader is pulled through the mouth (Figure 4). NOTE: You can rotate the hook for weedless applications.
  • Attach the leader to a swivel to quickly change baits. FOR DEEP WATER: Attach a split shot weight 12″ to 16″ from the bait onto the fishing line.

How to Thread a Crawler

In this example we are using a single hook leader and the anodized aluminum threader.
Using the threader to enter the front of the crawler, following along thru the center as far as you want to go and then exiting at your desired hook location, hook the loop of your leader on the notch at the end of the threader, slide back thru the crawler and attach to a snap swivel. No more losing your crawler when casting!!

How to Thread Soft Plastic Bait and Create Your Own Lure

Save 85% over the cost of pre-rigged artificial baits by creating your own soft plastic lures, rigs, and harnesses. Hook Line & Threader allows you to place the hook anywhere in the bait you prefer. Turn the hooks upward and the soft plastic bait becomes weedless. Never lose bait again when casting or trolling!

How to Thread a Green Sunfish

Using the Threader tool, insert into the mouth of the sunfish, follow the intestinal tract out the rear, hook the loop of your leader on the Threader Tool’s precision notch, pull back thru and attach leader to snap swivel. Sunfish will stay alive and swimming on your leader attracting that big catch!!

How to Thread a Shrimp

If you are using live shrimp as bait the best way to keep it alive and attract that big catch is to thread it with our Hook Line & Threader tool.

Holding the shrimp upside down, enter the threader into the body anywhere after the head, following the tail, then exit the tail at your preferred hook location, hook the loop of your leader onto the threaders notch, pull the leader back thru, set the hook in the body and attach the loop of the leader to a snap swivel. You can use any style/size hook or line you prefer, and the shrimp will stay alive on your line with a natural presentation! View the video to see how quick and easy it is!

How-to LEADER LOOP

Fishing Leader Loop Knot

  • STEP 1: Form a loop (A) at the end of the line by passing the tag end behind the standing line.
  • STEP 2: Take a turn around the standing line, forming a second loop (B). Hold in place and take another turn around the line, this tie crossing on the topside of loop B.
  • STEP 3: Hold tag end in place and pass loop B through loop A.
  • STEP 4: Pull loop B up until knot jams tight. Cut the excess tag end line.

How-to TIE LEADER TO HOOK

  • STEP 1: Insert the end of the line through the eye of the hook creating a loop (A).
  • STEP 2: Double back on the standing line and make five loops around it.
  • STEP 3: After making your loops, bring the line back to loop A and thread the line through it from behind the eye of the hook.
  • STEP 4: Thread the end of the line through the large loop (B), pull on the end slightly so that the coils tighten, and pull on the standing line so that the coils draw tightly and neatly together.
  • STEP 5: Cut the excess tag end line.
