Hooks for Red Drum

9 posts in this topic

I've been using the Mustad 92553 hook for large red drum. I’m thinking about changing to an Owner SSW model hook. I would like to know what hooks you are using. I know about circle hooks and I’m just wondering what J hooks you guys use

Don't use J hooks. You have a much higher chance of the fish swallowing the hook and getting "gut hooked". With a Circle hook, it slides back up the throat and sets in the corner of their mouth.

For my circle hook choice, I like 10/0 circle demons. They come out of the package quite dull, so a quick sharpen is always needed.
