    Hello everyone,
    I was wandering if anyone could help me. I was looking at catfishconnection at hooks. I noticed that Gamakatsu doesn't advertise Kahle's but I did find a hook called Gamakatsu Wide Gap that looks a lot like a Kahle. Is this Gama's version of the Kahle? If so I was wandering if anyone has used this particular hook and what they thought of it?

    Again thank you to anyone who takes the time to help me out with this question,
    Garrett

    regular gamakatsu octopus hooks are wide enough for me and I use 10-12" or bigger live bait. I use anywhere from 7/0- 12/0 depending on the size bait.

    Yes, they are the same as Kahles. The only thing you need to worry about is that they are not meant for very strong, heavy fish as they are thin. In my parts we call em Flounder hooks. That hook is widely used in the bays here for flounder and weak fish rigs. I wish Gama made those "big river" hooks in 6/0 or 8/0 size though.

    the regular octopus is more than wide enough, I have very good hook ups and most of the time its either in the corner of the mouth and they are so sharp that I have hooked fish right through the upper pallet of their mouth.
