Owner Mutu Light Circle Hooks
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.

Ultimate light wire circle hook.
These are awsome. Super light wire and very sharp. My only grip is that they are offset. These use to be my favorite light tackle circle hooks untill the Gulf Charters Fishery Amendment 27/14 said offset circle hooks in state waters was a no no for reef species. Either way these guys will find there way into my freshwater gear for baitfishing because I like them so much.

Favorite dropshot hook
I use the Mutu light wire circle hook all the time for any dropshot nose hooked artificial baits. I also use them for wacky rigging. They seem to provide better hooksets and less hang ups than the traditional octopus style of circle hook, and I like the fact that most of the time they will end up lip hooking the bass, rather than getting stuck deep in the fishes throat.

Love these hooks
Originally bought these for saltwater fishing but just spent the weekend catching lots of catfish with my wife on a creek near my home using these hooks. These hooks set themselves and with only a couple of exceptions the sets were in the corner of the mouth. Talk about ease of hook removal. You will not be dissappointed with these hooks.
