      Comments about Gamakatsu Red Octopus Hooks:

      These are great hooks. I'd expect nothing less from Gamakatsu. They're quite strong and very sharp. You can either snell them or tie your line directly to the eye. I used these to freeline sardines and haul in big barracuda and yellowtail off the coast of San Diego and had zero problems with the hooks.

                  7/0 is the big hook. I use 5/0 to 7/0 in salt water. Anything you can get to stay on the hook. I have used squid and chunk bait.

                  Not quite! The higher the number the smaller the hook is except when it is in the format of as examples: 3/0 or 7/0. Hooks like this get larger as the number grows.

                  It means choose the size of the hook, the higher the number the smaller the hook is.
