For you guys out there that target sharks from the surf...do you flatten out the barbs on your hooks?... if not than what do you use for dehooking? Anything out there better than a big pair of channelocks?  

Also what size hook would you use for a sandtiger? I use 10/0 VMC nemesis hooks on my shark rigs...I've been using them for years, and have caught plenty of small and medium sharks...are they too small for a sandtiger?

I use 16/0 mustad circles, cheap and work well. For pulling them I just cut the wire and take them out backwards if they don't easily come out normally. I don't flatten the barb and I use standard pliers but heavy duty dehookers work well. Mind you 90 percent of my catches are casted out.
