The circle hook has been around for years, and is one of the best style of hooks for just baiting up, casting it out and letting the fish do the rest. With a slightly turned-in, ultra-sharp hook point, the Gamakatsu Octopus Circle hook will usually end up pinned in the corner of the mouth. This is a great hook to use when the rod can be set up in a rod-holder and let the fish simply hook themselves.
The offset circle design is the perfect deepwater bottom fishing hook, with paternoster dropper-style rigs or normal boat fishing with cut baits. Most of the time, when using this style of hook you will not have to strike to set the hook. Just set and leave!
So if you are an angler who just sits and watches the world go by waiting for a fish to get on the hook, this is a must for your tackle box.
