Gamakatsu Catfish Kit
Best Hooks Ever
I fish for carp and cats, and I love these.
I was never a Gamakatsu fan because the hooks were expensive. But I lost countless carp on broken, weak, and dull hooks from no-name companies.
I finally got this as a gift and the 1st day, I brought it a 19 and 21.5 inch carp. My buddy caught 26 and 14 inchers. The next week we caught 8 nice cats in one night. And we never had a hook damaged, and no fish ever escaped the hook.
Eagle Claw is the only hook that comes close to these, But I loved these. Bite the bullet and buck, but some good hooks!

Great for cats. Caught a lot on them. The circle design sets the hook right every time. The offset eyes on some of the hooks make tying a snell easier. The bait hooks are good for holding livers. All of them are razor sharp, too.

Can't beat these hooks.
My friend turned me onto circle hooks. The fish does all the work, a strike, DON'T try and set the hook. Pressure is all that's needed, the fish does all the work. Circle hooks are the cat's meow for bottom lines. I get 3oz bluegill on an 8/0 hook. Hook size matters for the big fish. Easy to remove. Fish don't swallow larger hooks like fish consume small hooks. Big hooks get both large and small fish. ONE GREAT HOOK design!! Picture a 9# channel cat taken on 6/0 circle hook.

Like all Gamakatsu hooks, these catfish hooks are excellent and capable of landing large fish. They come razor sharp, stay sharp for a long time, and do not rust even when exposed to saltwater. Without a doubt, they are the best.
