Owner Mutu Light Circle Hooks
Best Light Circle in the Industry
I have tried almost every company that exists trying to find the lightest, sharpest, and most consistently set hook on the market.
For most of my striper applications a wide variety of circle hooks will do the job, but for freshwater applications or using delicate saltwater baits (shrimp and crabs especially) this is by far the best.
The shape of this hook adds rigidity so even if the shaft is slightly torqued under pressure the point and barb remained pinned.
This is a no-brainer. Light and strong, sharp and sure to stay set. Just don't yank it out of a fish's mouth and you are in business.

I have been using these hooks over 10 years now and they have never let me down. I trust them so much that last year i replaced all the J hooks on my marlin lures with a single10/0 circle, never dropped a single fish and with the barb crushed down they are so easy to release. You do not need the barb, once in they stick and they are so much easier to release. I have used them for all my game fishing even tying flies with them, boy do they hang on, all my pals are on them now and use nowt else. Buy with confidence, i know they look odd but they are mustard.

Great price for a truly great hook
I use these in So. Florida on big nasty bonefish and they absolutely never fail me. I use the 1/0 size and tail hook live shrimp. I've caught bones to 33" on these and I can safely say, out of the probably 150 fish I've caught on these hooks, I have never gut hooked one, nor ever had a fish die. That is the main reason I use these and will continue to use these as long as I fish shallow flats for bones. The picture is a slightly larger 3/0 hook that somehow was foul hooked in the fin.

I have been striper fishing for years and have gone through trial and error with many different hooks. The gamakatsu octupus circle is basically the industry standard yet I have lost a great deal of big fish on those hooks. I just switched to the red owner hooks and went 9 for 9 hook ups on my first trip. I think that is incredible for bait fishing with circle hooks. I am buying more!
