My catfishing is generally in the pan-size,5 pounds and under range. What size circle hook would be about right? Also, is there any advantage to an offset point? I've been using 4/0 Eagle Claw from Wallmart, but if there is a better size and brand, I'd try it.

Circle k hook from whisker Seeker tackle will work great for that size fish. I generally use them in 8/0 but 6/0 should work well for the fish you are targeting.

When I'm targeting eaters in the spring I primarily use cheap 3/0-4/0 kahle hooks from Walmart. I use circle hooks in the winter but I'm pretty sure setting the hook on the eaters is good for the soul.

I like to set the hook myself and the Eagle Claw Plain Shank 5/0 works equally good with cut bait and live perch. I do run circle hooks on my jug lines if I have them.

Team catfish double action all day unless it's a j hook. Then it's eagle claw.

I use punch bait with a size 6 treble hook. The best ones I've found are at BassPro. Don't remember the name, but they are made in France. A silver hook that does not bend or break like others do and reasonably priced.
