Mustad Circle Hooks - Model 39960D
Best/Strongest Circle hooks on the market
I've seen several complaints about the circle hook gap (complaint: gap not wide enough); these folks fail to realize that unlike all other fishing hook styles, THERE IS NO UNIFORM INDUSTRY SIZING OF CIRCLE HOOKS. These are by far the strongest circle hooks on the market. I use the 14/0 size exclusively live-baiting large tarpon on my boat on the Rio Colorado in Costa Rica - and now every guide in the area comes bumming hooks from me. I've never heard of a Tarpon bending one.The local Guides LOVE them because their clients no longer have to get a proper hook set to land a Huge fish.And that means better tips for them.

Took the # 16 Mustads out on the Gulf last week. Caught about 25 - 30 Blacktip Sharks to 7 feet and 100+lbs. Did not loose one fish! These hooks are great!

Self setting hooks that really work. Hook ups are consistant and easy to remove. Sharp hooks that remain sharp

Mustad Circle hooks, 39965D are just right
for Halibut in Washington State. There are no
standards for circle hooks so you will have to hunt around for the right hook and brand. I purchased 13/0, 16/0 is a "small hook" for commercial. You might have to buy one of several sizes to find what you need.
