Catfish Circle Hooks - For Other Fish

There are numerous other applications; including bottom longline and deep-drop fishing in which using these stainless steel circle hooks will help improve catch rate and reduce bottom snags and tangles. Our Max-Catch Circle Hooks are the go-to hook for serious anglers in the Florida Keys that use electric reels to target Queen Snapper and Snowy Grouper. 

For deep-dropping, when targeting larger size Snapper, Grouper, and Amber Jack, the 13/0 stainless steel circle hook is preferred. If targeting Tilefish and smaller Snappers, the 12/0 stainless steel circle hook works well. The typical deep-drop setup uses a chicken-rig style mainline about 6’ long with 3-way swivels about every foot with one-foot leaders. The bottom of the rig should have a large heavy-duty swivel in which a break-away zip tie is secured to a lead weight.

These deep-water dwellers, as apex predators, tend to immediately run after swallowing the bait. The self-setting design of our Max-Catch Circle Hooks, thanks to the built-on swivel, increases the chance that the hook sets in the corner of the mouth.
