      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.

                  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.
