What’s your favorite type of circle hook for cats? Octopus circle? What size? Does it make a difference when using live bait or cut bait?

Yes, a team catfish octopus circle hook in 7/0 or 8/0 that’s my preference. Those hooks have a nice wide gap so they work great for either live or cut bait. Just what I have had success with, I’m sure there’s a ton of great choices!

Tons of choices!! in the winter I use 8/0 gamagatsu offset circles.
Some say they have had some break but I personally never have.

I use 8/0 in 3 different hooks and can’t tell much difference in performance. I use TC double action, WS Octopus, and WS Triple Threats. I like all 3 but my preference is the Triple Threats cuz they are offset, wide gapped, and also have a bent eye for snell knots. texas


There is a fine line between fishing and floating around like an idiot!!

Team Catfish 8/0 Circle, and they are not offset but a pair of pliers or vice will do the trick if offset is what you want.

I use two hooks year round
Team catfish 8/0 double action circle that I offset and from Dec thru March I use Whisker Seeker Tripple Threat 10/0
I’ve tried other hooks but these are the two that is my preference and I trust them.

Team catfish double action. Then jackhammers if they don't set.


If the fish don't bite your not baiting right...

Non-offset true circle hooks, especially salt water tuna type hook, very strong for their size.

When fishing for trophy catfish only Gamakatsu Big Cat Circles in 12/0 will do.
