Serious saltwater anglers find Owner’s® Mutu Light™ Circle Hooks ideal for rigging both live and chunk baits. These premium Mutu Light Circle Hooks are designed with a unique offset, ''hangnail'' point so fish are jaw-hooked, not gut-hooked, approximately 90% of the time. Super-sharp forged point with a corrosion-resistant finish. Plus, the lighter wire used on these hooks allows for a livelier bait action. Models 5114 and 5314
For rigging live and chunk baits

I fish these hooks for pompano and sea mullet from the beach. Great hookup ratio compared to other circle hooks I've tried. Very sharp and stay sharp for a good while.

Best hooks I've ever used for panfishing. Many times the fish hooked themselves. No need for yanking or jerking, just turn the reel and the fish is hooked. Pretty strong hooks too.

Don't buy anything else
I have experimented with about every hook out there for stocked trout. I don't keep the trout so I release everything I catch. The problem is I still like to catch them. All of the hooks I have used, until the owner mutu, have given me problems. trout swallowing the hooks and injuring the fish even when I cut the line and leave the hook. I use a # 10 and I get easy hook sets and can release the fish unharmed. This is even a great hook for those that keep the trout. Most stocked trout fishermen use # 14 or # 16 trebles with floating dough bait. Most of the time the trout swallow the hook causing you to cut your line and re-tie another hook. Lost fishing time and taking your attention from other rods in the water. The Owner mutu # 10 will eliminate problems allowing ease of hookup and quick removal of hook ---- back to fishing again.

Good live bait hooks
I use these hooks with live shad to catch striper/wipers. I've landed some nice fish with these small hooks. Haven't had a broken hook yet

Me personaly, i use mustad 7/0 to 8/0 stainless steel hooks. With that said i have not cought a red fish under 35 inches and up to 43 inches in the last 7 years. I only fish for bull reds, if i dont fight the fish for at least 15 min. I DONT WANT IT. And i catch ALOT of bull reds every year!!!!
I have both #6 and #2 hooks. I'v caught 3" long panfish with the #6 and 1/2 pound ones on the #2 hooks. I would go with #2 to #1/0 for the bigger panfish and #6 or #4 if you are trying to catch some catfish bait.
Circle hooks are great for panfish, as they usually end up in the fishes lip rather than in their throat. The trouble is that many manufacturers don't make them very small. Owner (my favorite design of this hook) makes them down to size 6 and Gamakatsu make them down to size 8, but Eagle Claw makes them all the way down to size 14. I recommend a size 8 or 10 for panfishing.
