Daiichi Bleeding Bait Hooks
Bleeding Bait Hooks® HOW DO THEY WORK?
The original Light wire Bleeding Bait® Treble hook, perfect for hook replacement on lures
Our twenty-three years of trot-line studies, tank tests and underwater studies reveal:
1. Fish are naturally attracted to blood / injury.
2. As fish feed, the gills flare to inhale food, like any muscle, the gills are engorged with blood. It is this “Gill- Flash” that is a feeding signal to other fish, “Time to eat”.
3. While red is the first color to “disappear” underwater, fish can still identify the red color thanks to their unique rods and cones in their eyes. Red may change color in deep water, yet fish recognize it as a trigger. Eyes are only a receptor for what the brain ultimately perceives. If red really “disappeared”; wouldn’t our Navy’s subs be red instead of black?
4. Contrast is important. This is why scratched Bleeding Bait Hooks® are more effective than new hooks. Those scratches expose a bright metal finish that contrasts with the earth friendly, red finish.
5. Shark and Moray Eels do not recognize Bleeding Bait Hooks™ as a feeding signal. (They also do not have exposed gills like fish.)
Conduct Your Own Test A quick way to test them is to place one Bleeding Bait Treble on your favorite crank-bait or topwater lure. Note how many fish are caught on that treble. Now move it to the back, and count again, the fish caught on the Bleeding treble. (Pro Guide, Jim Duckworth says as many as 29 of 30 fish will be hooked on the Bleeding Treble!)
Tip: Choose a lure color that has 10% or less red in the color mix, to contrast with the Bleeding Bait Hooks®.
