Default Snapper Hooks

What hooks are you using for Snapper? Are the Owner SSW Inline Circle hooks good or the Gamakatsu Octopus Circle hooks?

I use them both and they are both great hooks. I use the 6/0 for Snapper and 8/0 for Grouper.

Either Owner Mutu light or Mustad 39944BLN. The Mustad is a newer one and I'm really favoring it over the Owner.

Mustad Demon Circle Hooks; 7/0 and 8/0; I purchase them in packs of 25 which go for around $15-18 a pack.

I have used Mustad hooks and like them. One thing I've started doing is getting different colors of hooks and matching them to leaders that I tie before I go out so I know what kind of leader I'm going to use from the hook color.

In FL, I think the circle hooks have to be offset and non-stainless, too, when fishing for reef species?

I typically use a 6/0 - 8/0 hook. I have used the Owner light and have had them fail on bigger snapper. I like the owner hooks but not the price. I currently like the gamakatsu 4x strong hooks.
