    Daiichi 7/0 circle chunk lite. They have a wide gap but are not cheap.
    Gamakatsu makes good circle hooks also and are less expensive, I use 7/0 and 8/0.

    I'm with Spoon on this, those Daiichis have a huge gap for a circle hook.They do cost more but are well worth it.

    i have to second third and fouthth the gamatkatzu hooks. there extreamly sharp right out of the package. a hook sharpener would most likly dull them. there the most needle point on a hook ive seen in some time.

    for larger fish and flats i have 8/0 bams oct, daiichi 7/0 chunk lite too. there $2.90 a three pack at cat connection but with the stop gap barb and the sheer strength of the shank there great strong hooks. rem the $200 rod and $150 reel and $30 line aint gonna do any good if it straightens the hook. :D
