We have them at our store in OB as well. If you can't locate them locally and don't feel like driving, I can mail them to you. Just let me know

I believe Tight Lines has 18/0 circle hooks which is what I use. Never had a problem with them.

use 10/0 owner circles or 12/0 super mutu. those 20/0 are too big for med. sharks. they aren't taking big baits and the hook is too thick to get out with an average hook remover or pliers. i've been able to remove them by hand but use one of the cheap bass pro hook removers with an S curve. i've also been using gamakatsu 10/0 J hooks and have had 100% hookups in the corner of the mouth.

the 20/0, or any of the cheap mustads really, do way to much damage to the fish for catch and release. i've already landed 2 sharks with damaged jaws from not being taken care of properly and most likely having a large, cheap hook ripped out of its mouth with the back of a hammer.

well we've been trying to use the 12/0 mustad circles but we cant seem to get a good hook up on the meduim ones when they run. i just wanted to go to a bigger hook becuase the gap on the 12/0 seems to small. do the owner or super mutu have a wider gap? thanks for the help and tight lines

the owners have the same if not bigger gap as a 16/0 mustad. not sure about the 20/0. mustads are tuna hooks, not shark hooks. they don't have wide gaps for the size they state they are. not very well built either. they're only used because they are cheap and readily available. there's plenty of thinner, stronger hooks with wider gaps. thinner = more/easier hook sets and easier release.
