What size of hooks are you using and what style?
8/0 gamagatsu circles, offset point.
I use, 7/0-10/0 Kahles.. and 7/0 Octapus J hooks
Open Water I Use Gamakatsu Circle hooks sized to the bait.
River or thick cover where you cant let the fish run, I use Mustad stainless steel 8/0-10/0 short shanked off set J-hooks for jackhammer sets.
All depends on the bait bro. If I am using a big live carp, I will have a 12/0 big river hook..
~ The smallest hook will be a 6/0 octopus for a small gill..
* My favorite hook lately is a 12/0 King khale hook and a big fat blue gill.
8/0 Gama Octopus Circle hook with offset point with mono-filament line.
6/0 Eagle Claw Kahle bronze with up eye for PowerPro line.
Both of these are for flathead fishing.
Guys if you have not had the chance to try out a Sickle hook. You owe your self the chance of using a great hook.
WE have them from 1/0 up to 11/0 the 10/0 and 11/0 are just like a big river hook.
The big sickle hooks are no different than the big river hooks, except the big river hooks have a tilted eye... The smaller sickle hooks however are awesome... I use the 7/0 for channel cats and they work great!
I have both in my hand. And theres a little more then just the tilted eye. Also ours has a better price also.
where's everyone getting thier hooks from? Local? internet? just curious...same some good saltwater hooks at Pass Pro...any other good sources?
Check out our hooks.
I buy all my hooks and fishing supplies through Wild Wolf. Definetly better than Bass pro..
SW has a good selection.
Mark, Next week when we go out, ill give you a crap load. I have a ton of them
I use 4/0 and 2/0 circle hooks from owner. seem to work well for me. The 2/0 hooks I have are mutu light circle and the package says they set themselves. must be true being as I never have to set the hooks.
I appreciate it...did you figure out when/where you're going out next week? Maybe I'll tag along if I don't have to go swimming in the process, since I don't have chest-high waders yet :smile2:
Havent been wading yet, i usually wait until August because they dont shoot as much water out of the stew dam at saguaro, I tried it last year with waders and I slipped, waders filled up with water and I had problems as you can imagine. Next trip.........Secret honey holes no where near the SR. gotta get my first 40++ of the year, done a couple 25ers, some 20ers, and bunch 10-15ers. Nothing huge yet though
I use a 8/0 J style hook but am gonna check out the big river hooks. I know a lot of guys like circles but I like to set the hook myself. Tight lines.
When I'm tightlining or slip bobber I use circle hooks. When I use reels with bait clickers engaged I like to use j-hooks or kahles, size is depending on the bait I use.
