    Gentlemen,

    What brand of hooks do you like for kahles? Does anyone other than eagle claw make them? What size for Channels and what size for flatheads? Can a guy buy one size for both and simplify things?


    Thanks,

    Reed

    There are several compaines that make them I know Catfish conection can help you with brands if they can not then maybe I can. But you have some great advice there all ready.

    Mark I use Eagle Claw 7/0 and catch fish of all sizes with no problems.I do use the nickel coated hooks only though.Plenty of companies make them so you have good choices.Probably: 5/0 would be a choice.:smile2:

    I use kahle hooks from 5/0 to 10/0. I also may put a 5/0 circle on some occasions.

    If I was searching for monster cats only I would chose a eagle claw king kahle 8 to 10/0 For a hook for both species maybe 6/0.

    Gamakasew (sorry if spelt wrong) makes a hook thats very simular to King Kahles, they call em Shiner hooks SE, you can get em at wal mark, and 3/0,4/0 and 5/0 should handle just about any fish, use 3/0 for smaller fish, 4/0 as an overall hook, and 5/0 will handle them big ones.
