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.

Best Salmon Hooks
May 22, 2020
Sometimes hard to find, I use the gamakatsu-2084-octopus-circle-hooks-offset-point for salmon fishing on the Pulaski River in NY. Size 6 works the best. I highly recommend this brand hook for its durability. It was recommend to me by one of Pulaski’s top Salmon guides Denny B. Thank you again for your passion and insight on how to continuously catch large Salmon and Steelies on the Pulaski River. Denny B. has since left the area. He will be missed by all his friend and fellow fishermen! Good luck Denny on your next adventure!

I'm on vacation in Florida, and for the first time I used the Gamakatsu circle hooks. Richard Gene, the fishing machine, showed me how to get fish using a circle hook. It's an amazing hook!! Careful they are extremely sharp.
ConsI should have purchased more (different sizes).

Can circle hooks be used on gulp alive larger grubs without tearing them apart. Considering 5/0  circle hooks on gulp baits.. Would they be better on strip baits like squid. 

Would you recommend straight octopus hooks instead on gulp alive for fluke bait. 

Thanking you in advance for your help

1 Answer
I would go with octopus style hooks for fluke fishing, regardless of bait, whether it's Gulp or natural.

Which size for chunking bait for stripers/blues? I was thinking 8/0 circle offset.
1 Answer
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.
