I just picked up a 25 count box of Mustad Big game saltwater hooks-C70S-D 5/0. These are 2x strong ring eye hooks. They are beasts for sure. They are sharp as hell and don't think a barracuda could wreck these things...well at least I hope not. Any way they are a bit heavier than what I have been tying with but like the hook just the same. I think it is or will be a top pike hook...try for yourself and enjoy,....tight lines!
