Agreed. Go with round bends. Owner stinger.

Regular gamakatsu . It's hard to beat the size and weight of the hook. And I'm a trokar guy.

Make sure you replace with same size hooks. If not you will can expect the bait to sink

In cold water...I like to use long shank hooks.....just in case of short strikes, and I can add lead wire to help slow the rise...but, always, round gap...

I'd use #6 owner round bend stingers.

Gamakatsu makes a "finesse" treble, that has a picture of A martens on the package, those hooks are STICKY sharp too, those trebles are right up there with the Stingers, maybe the new #1.
