    I was wondering what type of hook do most of you use. I use gamakatsu8/0 circles myself for flatheads. But then I like use my 8/0 J hooks for Blues.

    Circles exclusively for my style. I don't have to stay glued to my rods.

    The only hooks that I use is the circle hooks, I have tryed several other hooks in the past but never had no luck like I do with the Circle hooks, there good and usually the fish usually sets there selfs.

    Only octopus circles for me. Always a nice corner mouth hook up so I never have to kill the fish.
