The Gamakatsu Big Cat Circle Hook is designed specifically for tough-lipped, thick-mouthed catfish. The offset, precision sharpened hook point penetrates quickly even with light hook sets. It features an “up eye” so snelling is fast and easy. 2X strong forged steel is plenty of power for the biggest Blues — even Wels and Mekong cats if you ever get the opportunity. It’s the right hook for the job because it never stops working.
