Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 87 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Hooks I was looking for a good circle hook. Found it. Used them over the weekend and killed the catfish in the spot. Hooked nice, right on the lip and removal was a breeze. Would highly recommend. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Hooks These hooks are great for cat fishing. Very sharp and easy to use October 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good hooks Very strong and sharp hooks. I'll definitely buy these again. August 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Time first time I ever used these was a month ago for trout. They worked well although one swallowed it and it was a bit hard to remove. It is a sharp hook though and very effective. July 21, 2012

A: 
Well it depends on the lure size. I always upsize my hooks as much as I can get away with when bass fishing, circle hooks work well. You are going to want to use a thinner hook than you would use for catfish. I also prefer a wider gap in my circle hooks especially for Largemouth. Just size the hook to match the lure for best results!
I would take one of your senkos to bass pros and compare the size of your bait to the hooks available, There are so many hook sizes I can't think of just one size that will work there are lots of options you can look into! Good luck and good fishing bro!

I love the circle hooks for most any fish. The hook does the work and most are sturdy enough not to pull straight.

Details: 
I have never used circle hooks and want to reduce gut hooking fish. I see where they can be used for wacky rigging and anglers are recommending simply reeling down to set the hook. My question is, how long should I give the fish, compared to a regular wacky rig hook, before "setting" the hook? Any more, less or the same? Thanks for any and all feedback.

A: 
the circle hook design is to improve the number of "lip or jaw hookups" as opposed to throat. KNOW YOUR FISH.
some fish hit like a train and set themselves. others you can just tighten the line and again, they set themselves. still others, the fisherman needs to know on which "bump" to haul on the rod. (1st bump: sucking it in, 2nd bump: tasting, 3rd bump: spitting it out" good luck

If fishing with live bait for Flounder, count to ten before setting hook. If using larger live bait, count to twenty.

A: 
When fishing circle hooks for Bass you dont set the hook hard like you would with a J hook. Bass will often inhale a bait and blow it back out thinking they are killing it before eating. it takes practice, but once you feel the fish has it and swimming away, just start winding the reel fast and the fish will set the hook on its own. this is the case when using circle hooks on most species of fish.

A: 
Where we fish there a few Chinook salmon, but we rarely catch one as we mostly go for walleye. If you haven't used circle hooks you should. Seldom does a fish swallow the hook. Most fish are hooked in the side of the mouth. You will like them.

6/0 to 16/0 depending on the size of fish you're trying to catch. Even smaller circle hooks will land a huge sturgeon.

A: 
By in-line, I assume you are asking if they are "kirbed" or twisted? The Octopus Circle hooks are kirbed. Can't say about the other versions, however. I have always untwisted them to remove the kirbing. I think the hook-up ratio would be better as manufactured, but I am more concerned about where the fish are hooked. They do fine, either way.

The Yamamoto "Splitshot Hook" is also a circle hook, also made by Gamakatsu, without kirbing. It looks entirely different, but works just the same. BPS doesn't stock them, tho I wish they would. Circle hooks are not real easy to get, locally. C&R

well pinfish grow to 12"
and the ones your using are probably about 8 or so
the fish ur going for would be best to get with a large hook such as 1/0 as the other review stated and you will be easily hooking up if the bite is on

A: 
what tend to works best with me is taking a strong swivel, taking 2 strands of your favorite braid, about 8 to 12in long, tie one end of both to the swivel then take either 2 gamakatsu octupus hooks and tie them to the loose ends of the braid. Then hook the bait in the mouth and in the back of the dorsal fin. This also works with round bend treble hooks but with octopus hooks the bait wont get as tangled up. This is my most effective way to catch flat heads. P.S. never plan to use a cetain bait set out muliple lines and let the fish decide.
