For the guys that use them I'm asking what you would use.

Circle Hook Recommendations:

1) Tuna (Chunking) Size? Brand?

2) Tuna (Trolling) Size? Brand? Inside a Bally Ho or homemade lure.

3) Sharking (Drifting) Size? Brand? Would you even use them?

Thanks

forget the circles trollin for tuna and sharkin if youre going to use them use em on the billfish, have you ever hooked a tuna fish deep while trolling? i surely havent, maybe thats just me, even in low strike. chunking with circles can be very effective with the circles. anything from a 9/0-12/0 mustad, have had success chunkin with circles but still like the haybusa and gamatksku 9/0 live bait hooks best for chunkin. just my opinion though.

Yeah I was going to troll with circles on a few of my Homemade Lures
That are notoriouse for Bill fish hiting them.

When the bills fish strik'em I'd like a better hook up ratio. I've had some trouble setting the hooks on Marlin with the J's

i thought you wern't supposed to use offset hooks for trolling because they spin and will not track right.
