Gamakatsu Octopus Hooks, Circle (Offset-Point) - Specially designed to set in the corner of the fishes mouth, making it a great choice for the fresh and saltwater fisherman still wanting to use bait.

Gamakatsu Octopus Hooks, Circle (Inline-Point) - Same design as the Octopus Circle, but without any offset to conform with some Billfish tournament regulations and some fisheries that require non-offset circle hooks.

Hooked a 14 pound King last week.Took 25 minutes to land him ..hook held this big boy.

Ended up first nite out fishing from my slip and caught the Grapevine Lake record 7 lb. Channel Cat, also a 14 1/2 inch crappie, two nites later caught a 8 lb. Blue Cat, Hooks worked like a champ. Gamakatsu circle from now on.

Great hook for catch and release
I can rely on these Gamakatsu Circle Hooks to minimize gut hooked fish, so the fish can live to see another day! The fish will get hook on the lip most of the time. With a fish finder rig, I just reel the line in to lip-hook my catch.
ProsStays Sharp, Durable, can use time after time

VERY STRONG hooks and sharp!
The only thing is the hooks are not as shown in the pic, where the eyelet is not off set, it is straight in line with the shaft. This takes away a minor amount on the model of 'offset' where the hook pulls. I was disappointed in that I expected one thing and got another.
ProsAs always, the Gamakatsu delivers one of the finest hooks on the market.
ConsHook is not as shown in picture.

Gamakatsu circle hooks
By far the best hooks i have ever used, very sharp and strong, no need for a strike as the hook sets itself. Use the 4/0 for catfish and inshore species, and smaller sizes 8-2 for freshwater. These hooks also work very well in freshwater bait fishing applications.
ProsSuper Sharp, guaranteed hooksets

Gamakatsu Circle Hooks
A gentle lean on the fish is enough to set the hooks, usually in the corner of the mouth. These are the best hooks I have used for bait fishing.
ProsVery sharp and high hook-up rate when compared with non circle or non Gamakatsu hooks.
ConsIf you strike to hard you can pull the hooks

Only bait hook to use
I use these hooks exclusively for bait fishing in the surf, freshwater, and for spring spawning stripers. The 4/0 is ideal for bloodworms, and the 5/0-8/0 is great for bunker chunks. I have caught 80lb rays and 5 ft sharks on these hooks and I've never had a bend or break. You won't be disappointed with these hooks. Just remember, don't set the hook! Let the fish do the work and keep pressure on the fish at all times!
ProsStrong Wide gap for bigger baits Performs as stated Great Hooksets
ConsMay rust if not stored properly or rinsed

holds on tight
I got these because I was losing a lot of fish with the hooks I had. As soon as I switched to these I started bringing more fish aboard the boat. I got these for Fluke but I will be using for a most applications in the future.

These are money
These hooks have been so awesome. I use them for bottom fishing for shark and cobia. Also will use them inshore, live baiting for sharks and reds under a popping cork. Never cease to amaze me the times I get a perfect hookup right in the corner of the mouth. Highly recommended! STRONG!

Gamakatsu Circle Octopus hooks
This is all that we use on my boat for cod, stripers, and pollock. I've landed many big blue sharks on them and they have never failed me. I tie my own cod teasers on them over the winter.. I like using the red hooks, as the added color goes well with my pink teasers (shrimp pattern). 7/0 for cod is perfect.

Great Circle for Live Lining Bunker
I use the Gamakatsu circles for live lining bunker when fishing for striped bass. Let the bass take the bait, run with it for a 5 count and then set your drag to strike. Almost always get a good hookset with no worries about gut hooking the bass. Would recommend the Gamakatsus for any application where you are using a circle hook.

Excellent Hooks
These hooks are ideal for fishing with bait and the rod in a holder. The circle design lets the fish hook itself so no yanking required to set the hook. The inline bend will minimize gut hooked fish. The upturned eye works best with a snelled line attachment and I believe this improves hook-up percentage. The wide gap makes baiting the hook a bit easier than other inline circle hook designs.
ProsSharp right from the package, great design, good corrosion resistance
ConsPricey, but you usually get what you pay for

1 Question & 1 Answer
from CT asked:
May 4, 2017
Which size for chunking bait for stripers/blues? I was thinking 8/0 circle offset.
1 Answers
Depending on the size chunks you are using will determine the size hook to use. Generally a size 6/0 - 8/0 will do the trick.
