Eagle Claw L197 is the best circle hook for the money. You can usually find them in boxes of 40 hooks. Other people will tell you that theirs is better and it might be, but I'm not going to pay $1.50 or more per hook until these hooks fail me. You can get cheaper hooks on Ebay if you search and I have used them as well, but the Eagle Claw hooks are more solid.
9 lake records, 3 all tackle, and I only added this because Rick did and I have more.
