If you are using weight and bait, and face the challenge of your hook keeper mangling your bait, and your weight smacking into your rod, then you need to check out the ALPS Drop Shot hook keepers. Precision made from SS316 stainless steel, this hook keeper is the standard for bass rods, trout rods, and just about any casting or spinning rod application. The great part about this hook keeper is that you hook the line of your rod just above your weight, which keeps it from dinging up your rod. This is a complete advantage so your precious rod won’t be easily broken by your lure. Your hook and bait are free and clear while giving you the peace of mind to fish throughout the day.
