  • The Shinto Pro Pimped Micro Assist Hooks are a standout in the micro assist hook market with their overly flashy and attractive designs, incredibly strong and sharp hooks, and strong rings. These assist hooks can increase your fish landing rate significantly. They come in sizes 4, 6 and 8 to suit a range of lures from around 40-110mm.

    These smaller size 4 hooks suit 40-80mm lures, which include little minnows to crank baits and even micro jigs.

    The middle size 6 hooks suit 50-95mm lures, which include the same sort of lures as above. They're also great as a stinger assist on soft plastics.

    The bigger size 8 hooks suit 70-110mm lures, which include minnows and micro jigs, and again act as a great stinger hook for soft plastics.

    Benefits Of Using Assist Hooks

    There are 4 key reasons that these assist hooks will benefit you on the water:

    1. Better Fish Landing Rates: assist hooks eliminate the leverage of the lure to dislodge the hook during a fight with an aggressive fish due to their flexible cord connection.
    2. Less Bust-Offs: the length of the assist chord keeps the fish's mouth away from your leader, which is especially handy when there are tailor or other toothy species around, or fish that are likely to rub through your leader like big flathead.
    3. Better Attraction: the Shinto Pro Pimped Assist Hooks are especially flashy, with holographic strips as well as high-vis strips and glitter throughout some of the strips.
    4. More Natural Lure Presentation: The assist hooks streamline the look of your lures when it counts, with a constant retrieve they sit alongside the lure giving a more natural baitfish profile, and splay out when you stop them on the bottom or jig them for attraction.

    Where/When To Use Shinto Pro Pimped Assist Hooks

    • On hard body lures to replace trebles and/or use in conjunction with them
    • On metal jigs
    • On soft plastics as stinger hooks. Rather than a traditional stinger, it's best to attach them to your jig head eyelet with a split ring

    How To Rig Them

    You really can rig them however you like. We've personally tried almost all combinations with success, but the best we have found so far for general usage on a typical hard body minnow (long slender lure) would have to be the assist hook on the rear eyelet combined with and a treble or double hook on the middle eyelet. That's not to say it doesn't work other ways, and it certainly has for us, this is just the best. Some lures will require a different setup because of their shape, just do it to match your lure. You will occasionally get the assist tangle with the other hook, but it's no biggie considering the benefit once you actually hook a fish.
