    Was reading a few threads about various hook styles and preferences for each and while the debate always seems to come up about circles vs J, etc., I hear a lot of people talking about octupus hooks. Is that because they have a much wider gap so they are better to use a big bait with or because they have a higher hookup/strike ratio? Information and opinions appreciated. Tight lines.

    Wider gap. Better hook up ratio. and there is more hook exposed from the bait. Good luck out there
