CBC, I presume you mean parallel not "same plain"? If they were on the same plain (in line) and you skin hook the wormy on the top then the worm will lie in a slight loop unless you insert the hook's point into the middle of the worm but we don't do that. So the hook and the shaft must be parallel but with a slight off-set (not on the same plain) to accommodate for half of the thickness of the average wormy.

BWV's pictures above illustrates this nicely. Hold a ruler in line (same plane) as the shank and you will see that although the point is parallel to the shank it not on the same plane, it has an off-set of about 3-4mm.


Yup Ninja - that gives me the confidence in GAMAKATSU OFFSET EWG in all formats...

I am with Roy and use the Trokar, what a hook... A hooked fish stays hooked. The problem is that with the Jigs I am using I have lost a few fish including a Fat Girl a few weeks back that would have been a COTM!

I also like Hyabusa after Peter recommended them to me 2 years ago.

I have used the thin gauge Owner red hooks with some good success as well.
