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.

Haven't missed a bite yet with these hooks. Perfect hook up in the corner of the mouth every time I have used them. The only downside is they are slightly small for their quoted size. I got the 11/0 which works well but I fee a 12/0 or 13/0 would be even better for the fish I am targeting in the 15-50 pound range. They still work well, I just prefer bigger. Go one size bigger than you think you need.
Prosperfect corner of mouth hook ups
ConsSlightly small for quoted size

Great got small-medium size sharks and rays. I have pulled in a 9.5ft sand tiger with one of these hooks and the hook never bent. I've only ever had one straighten and it was on a massive souther ray but I still landed the ray.

Perfect Striped Bass Hook
June 10, 2020
Great for livelining or chunking, I would recommend the 9/0 or 10/0 size. If you're tossing livies, go for the 10/0 so it sits a little nicer on the hook.

I like the wide gap hooks for larger game and for cut bait fishing. These hooks are strong and sharp. I have more success with wide gap circle hooks than standard circle hooks. I definitely recommend these hooks. Mustad Demons deliver the fish.
ProsYou can put the hook a little deeper into the bait without filling the gap. Seems to result in more hook sets for me. They have held up very well in saltwater.
ConsHave not really found any.

These are pretty much the only circle hooks I use! They come extremely sharp and are incredibly strong. I fish these mainly on the reef in the FL Keys and some for stripers in the North East.

Best drum hook
December 7, 2017
I only use this hook for fishing red drums and very good hook set on a mouth. This is just thicker version of Mustad 39951NP-BN. Same gap and size as Mustad 39951NP-BN.

Very Nice Hooks !
September 7, 2017
Used these for Smaller tuna and white sea bass in southern California, they hold up well and are easy to tie to your top shot. The bend on the tip of the hook made it a bit harder to put on bait but after a few tries you get used to it. Would definitely recommend these.

OK, but the barb makes it difficult to curl a shrimp onto the hook
December 2, 2016
Good circle hook design, but some baits may be difficult to get onto the hook due to the curved barb
ProsStrong and corrosion resistant
ConsCurved barb makes it hard to bait up with some baits

I have used the Wide Gap Mustad 39948Z and 39948NP-BN on many of the big game leaders I build. Don't let the size fool you, these are some of the best circle hooks I've ever used! The wire sets perfectly in the corner of the jaw and still rigid enough to reel in the big ones. We have caught Sharks up to 8' on the 12/0's and Monster Reds with the 10/0 and 11/0's. I would highly recommend this hook to all my family, friends and clients! Leonard Dale/QuikSet Leaders Houston, Texas

Awesome Circle Hooks!
October 30, 2015
I build custom big game leaders for resale here in the Houston and Galveston, Tx area and recently used the 11/0 and 12/0 Mustad 39948 wide gap circle hooks for targeting bullreds. They are one of the best hooks I've ever used and the hookups have all been perfectly set in the corner of the jaw. The wide gap allowed me to use a larger baits which IMO attributed to some great catches of some Monster Reds! I highly recommend these hooks to anyone seeking big fish.
