    Does anyone know of a source for treble hook bonnets? I have a bunch of lures with the Owner 4/0 that I would like to cover. Thanks.

    those are too small. you need the owner cultiva 2L for 3/0-5/0 hooks and 1.5L for 1/0-3/0 hooks. ebay everyonce in a while will have the 2L. kilsong was supposed to get some also

    you could also just cut some straws and save a few bucks, maybe buy more lures :)

    Bonnets are great if you can find them. Soft tubing (Glo fuel) from a hobby store works well, but are more time consuming. Use 1/2" or 3/4" piece over each point of the treble. Twist on; twist off.

    I would prefer bonnets, if available at a reasonable price and without international shipping.

    It doesn't make any sense to me that Owner sells the 3/0 to 5/0 sized trebles here in the states, yet they only officially sell those 1.5L and 2L hook caps everywhere BUT here in the states...????? Did someone snooze at Owner Hook? LOL!!

    How about ordering straight from Owner?

    I appreciate the heads up. I was just getting ready to order from overseas yesterday. Called owner a few minutes ago and ordered the large size. :)

    the L size doesn't fit 3/0 to 5/0 sized hooks... you need the 1.5L or 2L size for that...

    You are correct, I just got off the phone with owner and it won't fit the 3/0 to 5/0 hooks. I got lucky, they had a few laying around that they will ship to me. I was told if we ask for them, they will carry them.

    That's what I was told. If there is a demand they will carry them. So, get on the horn and call them Monday.

    Sweet! I'll be pestering them about it!! I've been looking for those 2L size for awhile now, and I know lots of guys on here are looking for them as well.
