These hooks use narrower gauge wire than others, and they come sharp and stay sharper longer than any others I have used. Using them in the Northeast and they are a great size for butterfish tossed to mahi.

The BEST hookks for bait fishing
August 4, 2022
These hooks use narrower gauge wire than others, and they come sharp and stay sharper longer than any others I have used (i.e. eagle claw and Owner). I've use the same hooks on a bottom rig for 3 full days of surf fishing and they still caught fish. Only drawback is the eyes on the smaller sized hooks will only hold one strand 12lb. test (okay, I could use lighted line), so snelling them is a challenge.
Prossharp, small wire, durable
Conssmall(ish) eyes.

These hooks are sharp and sticky to keep the fish on. It’s important to buy reliable hooks so you don’t loose big fish.

I use these for live lining mackerel and pogies for stripers. They work great. Nice and strong, and compliant with the current inline circle hook regulations (2022). No complaints at all - I snell these on to the leader material and usually end up with the hook right in the corner of the mouth.

They Hook Themselves
March 26, 2022
Octopus hooks are great for catch and release but these are better than most. They're inline instead of offset which means if you put one on a flat surface it won't wobble. Offset hooks wobble because they have a twist. In my view inline hooks are easier to remove and therefore better for catch and release. I've bent a few and broke a few but mostly these just catch fish. I use light tackle so that's to be expected. You'll do well if you just pull enough to tighten the line. Let the fish hook itself.

Best hang back hook in the business
December 24, 2021
We use 3/0 mostly as the rear hook on the mooching rigs we troll for ocean salmon, which is a Barbless fishery. This Circle hook with the barb pinched down has been the best at keeping fish on all the way to the boat. Also that boosts confidence to wait on netting until we are sure we can keep the fish. WIN WIN WIN

New England Legal Striper Hook

Since most (if not all) of the coastal New England states are requiring Inline circle hooks when targeting stripers it was time to invest in a whole bunch of new bait hooks. These Gamakatsu hooks fit the bill.

Best Salmon Hooks
May 22, 2020
Sometimes hard to find, I use the gamakatsu-2084-octopus-circle-hooks-offset-point for salmon fishing on the Pulaski River in NY. Size 6 works the best. I highly recommend this brand hook for its durability. It was recommend to me by one of Pulaski’s top Salmon guides Denny B. Thank you again for your passion and insight on how to continuously catch large Salmon and Steelies on the Pulaski River. Denny B. has since left the area. He will be missed by all his friend and fellow fishermen! Good luck Denny on your next adventure!
