The Gamakatsu 5/0 Live Bait Hooks are as tough as they come, designed and built for strength when it comes to fishing for yellowfin, marlin, broadbill, sharks, mulloway and kingfish.
Whether you are using a live or dead bait, this hook will fit the bill. If you are targeting big fish by suspending a live bait underneath a balloon or bobby cork, you would pin this hook in the middle of the fish's back, just above the lateral line.
If using a paternoster rig, you would pin it through the bridge of the nose. This would then allow the fish to swim naturally in the current.
