Great for smaller fish in the surf
October 11, 2013
The lightwire mutu is one of my go to circle hooks for baitfish in the surf. Extremely sharp and fairly strong for a lighter hook. If a fish bites, I have no doubt that it has been hooked. I typically use them for spot/kingfish/small blues/ and whatever smaller fish are around. I have also landed many nice puppy drum and mid 30" stripers on them with a light drag. I wouldn't suggest them for fish this large but they can handle it if played right.
Pros:Super sharp out of the package
Good design that catches fish as a circle hook should
Cons:Point dulls fast in surf conditions
Small barb allows for dropped fish
