    What model of Gamakatsu 8/0 circles is everyone using? Thinking of stocking them. But need too find out what hook to supply?
    Also looks like I may be listing lots more hooks, Even rod building stuff on the site in a week or so.
    But please if your using Gama Circles let me know what your using.

    8.0 Gamakatsu octopus circles. That's what I think most folks use. Some like the same hook in smaller sizes, but I like the 8.0

    I also go with the Gama octopus circles, anywhere from size 6/0-8/0 for flatheads and 4/0-6/0 for the channels in the lake that i fish. hope that helps.

    John I am looking for a supply of King Kahles, as soon as I can find them. I will get some in,.
    Also on the 8/0 Gama's they should be in 25,50 and 100 packs or more.
