i have been on a search for a 12/0 hook that i didnt have to take out a loan to buy for quite some time now. i finally found one. it's a mustad "big gun" 12/0. i had to get them from some guy in australia on ebay. i got a box of 25 for $ 18.00. these hooks are sweet! the gap between the point and shaft isnt much bigger than the 9/0 eagle claws i use but the big difference is how deep the bend is. you can put one heck of a chunk of bait on and still have plenty of hook sticking out for better penetration. they have a very slick finish also and are some of the sharpest hooks out of the box i have ever seen. like i said i had to get them off ebay. i went to mustads website and they didnt even list them in 12/0. 9/0 is the biggest i could find anywhere else. here is a pick of one next to a milk top.
