What are u guys using? Size and style..... I always use Eagle Claw circular sea 12/0 or Team Catfish 12/0 for cut bait. They are thick and sharp. Never had one break on a heavy cat or snag. I use gamakatsu 9/0 octopus hooks for eels and live bait with crimps and a big loop instead of a snell. They are thinner hooks, more prone to snap, but smaller hole in live bait as not to kill it..... And way sharper. Are these too big for drum fishing? I always need a reason to buy more gear. I have these hooks rigged and stockpiled currently because this is what I use for blue cats. Same exact drum rig that has been discussed on here thoroughly. I'm heading down to rock next week. So excited for the opportunity to dump some spools and a chance to tug on something besides bowfin and catfish.
