    Same kind that are best for fishing from a boat. 5/0 circle hook Gamakatzu is hard to beat......some like a little bigger. Really any brand will work just fine, but I'd go for the circle hooks. Just remember not to rare back and set the hook when the rod jiggles or the circle will come out

    Just abbout any circle hook from 5-9/0 size depends on bait size but remember NOT TO RARE BACK AND SET THE HOOK OR YOU'LL JUST BRING BACK AN EMPTY HOOK, let him hook himself an as the rod tip heads for the water just pick it up and start reeling, he'll be there and he'll let you know when he feels resistents from you. GOOD LUCK AN TIGHT LINES :0a10:

    I mostly bank fish. The circle hooks from 4/0 ( worms/liver) to 8/0 ( cut bait ) work fine. Make sure you have a dam good rod hold using them, they WILL take your rod. I tight line and wait for the fireworks....pick up and reel but don't haul him in to fast.

    I like Gamakatsu 8/0 circles and 10/0 owners. Let the rod load up with these.

    Also like Kahle hooks from 7/0 - 10/0. You can let the rod load up or jerk as hard as you want with these.
